Is your battery still ok? Zoe after 5 years at 96%
“Don't get fooled“, Matteo suggests right from the title of the new video. That is: if you buy a used electric, make sure of the remaining battery capacity, i.e how much autonomy the car in question can guarantee you. There are a number of diagnostic tools: Paul Mariano, for example, tried the kit Turn it over on his Volkswagen ID.3. Matthew instead used the Power Check Control, with license that costs about twenty euros a year. All easy, you can buy it on Amazon and use it in just a few steps by connecting it to the OBD port: Matteo explains the whole procedure well in the video. The Zoe used is that of a florist friend who uses it both for work and as a personal car, with 110 thousand km already traveled in 5 years. Result? Pretty good - this Renault still has the 96% of the initial capacity and all 96 cells exit the check with a green light. They are "healthy", with the exception of cell no. 39, which is still functional.
