    Question eGolf battery aging, what do I need?

    Hey guys,

    I just purchased a 2015 VW eGolf. I'd like to pull the battery aging / capacity to see how I am doing with the battery over time. Is this something that can be read with VCDS-Lite or some cheaper cable setup, or do I need to purchase a $300+ cable and use the latest, complete software?

    Thank you,
    - Phr00t

    VCDS-Lite won't work -- it's for K-Line cars only, and that era ended with the Mk.5.

    A $249 Micro-CAN should do the trick.

    There are some values that can be read out, but exactly how they should be interpreted may not be 100% clear.
