pack rebalancing test 1

pack rebalancing test 1
Brians chart of charge cycle

Cousin Brian (nemystic) drove down with his 2000 silver Insight for my first real rebalancing test.
Brian has a MIMA system, so he was able to charge the pack on the 60 mile trip to my place to the max that the system allowed, which was over the top of the SOC gauge.
This graph clearly shows the leveling off of the voltage rise when we approached the 100% SOC point.
The pack temperature was initially over 90F from the MIMA charging on his trip down, but once we got the fan and the charger connected and charging, the temperature fell to about 77 which was the ambient temp and stayed there for the whole test.
