With a OBD2 (On-Board Diagnostic) adapter and this simple application installed in your Android device you can see a lot information about your electric car. It’s specially important to know the battery health.

Versions for the following EVs:

  1. Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (available)
  2. Mistubishi i-MiEV (already in beta)
  3. Nissan Leaf (coming soon)
  4. Kia Soul EV (coming soon)

 

If you are thinking in buying an used Mitsubishi i-MiEV or even a French equivalent as the Citroen C-Zero or Peugeot iOn, this app is a must have, since the other well known app, the caniOn, doesn’t show the remaining battery capacity.

If you don’t have a compatible OBD2 device you can buy one OBDLink LX, which is also compatible with caniOn.

 

EvBatMon for i-MiEV showing the remaining battery capacity

 

With the EvBatMon app it will be easier to compare the endurance of older LEV50 and newer LEV50N cells used in i-MiEV batteries.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. Iā€™m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

Cool-looking app. I signed up for the beta and will be configuring it to my tablet later this week. Another good app
for i-MiEV variants is caniOn . . .

More good i-MiEV news: Mitsubishi just announced a 2017 model year for the North American market . . .

Benjamin Nead with this app you’ll probably find out if your i-MiEV has the LEV50 or LEV50N cells.

Let me know when you know it šŸ™‚

How to calculate your usable battery capacity with caniOn:

1. Start driving with 100% charge.
2. Stop at some point and take down SoC, Wh out and Wh reg, e.g. 75%, 4000 out, 700 reg.
3. usable Wh=(Wh out – Wh reg)*(100%/(100%-SoC%))

Example: usable capacity = 3300 * 4 = 13.2 kWh – This is the number the ECU and BMU use!

Hope this helps šŸ˜‰
