I've never seen any energy registered for battery conditioning, is this normal even in cold weather?
The temperature at which the battery says, "Hey! I'm cold, send me some heat."Define "cold weather"; 50 degrees, 15 degrees, -15 degrees, etc?
I finally noticed for the first time, some battery conditioning while not plugged in, a few days ago. As you can see, there was lots of human conditioning too.If you are plugged in, it will condition without registering on the screen, It only show's up there when it uses battery to do it. It was -20C / -4F here on Friday and I had 3% on the screen from the car sitting for a bit unplugged. after that never had it again as I was charging every time I stopped but the car was definitely running the BMS as it got even colder on the drive -29C / - 20F but never had conditioning show a % again.
yep, it has to sit a while. I saw the conditioning from it sitting for 16 hours at -20C and even then it was only 3% of the battery.The battery weighs nearly 1000 lbs. It's a lot of mass and retains a lot of heat. It takes a long time to bring it down to 0C (where the heater wants to kick in) even if it's below 0C outside.
No on demand preconditioning button. But below is an interesting experiment done on VW ID4s. “Yo-yoing”. Pretty dramatic results. But any attention you get from the police is your responsibility 👮♀️.This is an interesting observation. I know in the Tesla, you can choose to precondition the battery to enable faster charging at their superchargers, either as a scheduled event, or automatically upon choosing a certain supercharger to use from the map. To date, I've not seen any "on demand" battery conditioning in the EUV... 🤷
Not to mention doing that sh!t on public roads is dam stupid, especially in that weather.No on demand preconditioning button. But below is an interesting experiment done on VW ID4s. “Yo-yoing”. Pretty dramatic results. But any attention you get from the police is your responsibility 👮♀️.
