When I check my battery charge with the Hondalink app it is always at 99% when fully charged (240V charger, overnight charge) Is that everyone's experience?
No, not my experience at all. When it's charged it will say 100 % unless you have it start for pre climate conditioning.When I check my battery charge with the Hondalink app it is always at 99% when fully charged (240V charger, overnight charge) Is that everyone's experience?
It has been my experience that sometimes a full charge is 99% and sometimes 100%. Lately, with it colder now, 99% is more common. I'm not concerned.When I check my battery charge with the Hondalink app it is always at 99% when fully charged (240V charger, overnight charge) Is that everyone's experience?
The range estimate is based on recent driving history, and many factors other that ambient temperature can reduce this. Highway driving, fast starts/stops, etc will reduce efficiency - physics is physics. Driving conditions/behavior that would reduce mpg when running on gas will reduce mi/kWh and therefore range. The fuel powering your vehicle makes no difference.Now that's it's warmer here in MI it seems like when I charge up my 2018 Honda Clarity it's showing 100% which is good but it shows that I only have 43 mile range. I kind of recall once it started getting warmer it would show 100% charge and I would have 47 - 50 mile range and this was last week.
It's showing 100% but only 43 mile range! I have a Juicebox Pro 32 and it's inside of my garage and I don't think the issue is with the charger. I even used my 110 charger cable that came with the car and it doesn't give me the range I think I should get.
Any suggestions? Or maybe I should take it back to the dealership? Also, the temp last night was 40 and I did show 100% but only 43 mile range.
Maybe you have tried this already but if you can start the hill descent slowly and keep the speed very low you can usually keep the engine from coming on. Regen doesn't operate below about 5 mph and as long as you keep at a slow speed you can press the brakes as hard as you want and it will only use the friction brakes. This is something you can observe on the power display and with some practice you can see how slow you need to go to avoid regen. Of course only when you can do this safely i.e. no cars behind you.I think the 99% is only an estimate, so sometimes it says 100% charge is a full charge and sometimes is 99%. Does anyone know if I can set the charge to stop at 80%? My engine sometimes starts up when the battery is fully charged and when I apply the brakes or engage the regen pedal it triggers the engines to start. I understand that this is suppose to be normal as the energy that the regen has generated has nowhere to go so the engine comes on for some reason. The problem is that I live on a hill and when I fully charged the batter I had to go downhill and that starts the engine, very annoying and pollutes the environment.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
My hill is fairly steep with a speed bump at the bottom, but it's a short hill so as long as no one is behind me, which is most of the time, I can go as slow as I want. I tried it yesterday and had no problem going 10 mph with no regen. I might be able to go a little faster than that. The only time I have a problem is when I forget that I have a full charge and then head down the hill at 20 mph which is the speed limit then hit the brakes when I get near the speed bump. A few minutes later I notice that ICE is running and I suddenly remember that I was supposed to take it slower that day.Thanks 2002 for the tip. The street is fairly steep and there are usually lots of cars on this road so it will be hard for me to go slow as it may cause irritation behind me, but I will definitely give it a try. I suppose on the Hondalink app there is no programming for the charge to stop at 80%? Have an awesome day.
