He has three bad cells and Ahrs > 66 and 100% SOH???? Where do I sign up for that?


Not having looked at his stats personally, I assumed he knew what he was talking about without question. I had no reason to doubt his belief that his battery has three bad cells nor did the Nissan Corporate Executive whom we were talking with. What he bases his belief upon was not presented to me.

I'm confused by his comment "Tricked you, Jerry". And looking closely at the picture, it looks like he blacked out at least one of the bars. Is he playing games, or did he really lose three bars?

So much about this venture could have been handled much better! Honestly, I gave up caring and following it quite some time back...
59,991 miles/12 bars/289 Gids/68.54 AHr/101% SOH/101.64% Hx 7May15 w/ new Lizard (barely made the warranty).
71,770 miles/12 bars/256 Gids/59.04 AHr/88% SOH/87.92% Hx 3Mar16 at lease return.

Now driving a 2016 Volt Premier. Model 3 configured.

I'm guessing neither. I'd say he took a pic of someone elses dash just to play a joke on a friend. His car probably doesn't have those miles or bars.

Yep on the bolded part. Brian was driving a 2013 Leaf S w/CHAdeMO inlet which means it would have the 6.x kW OBC.

A car w/6.x kW OBC would have 3 lines on that screen of the dash display. Example (I've posted about this a bunch of times like at viewtopic.php?t=14685 and viewtopic.php?p=445232#p445232):
240V 6kW: 0:30
240V 3kW: 0:50
120V: 7:30

Albion man breaks world record for trip in electric car
Nearly 35,000 miles and counting for Brian Kent


For nearly six months Brian Kent has been travelling the country, spreading a message that electric cars are reliable long-range vehicles.

Since he left Albion on Aug. 24, Kent has driven a 2013 Nissan LEAF nearly 35,000 miles. He was at 34,260 miles on Thursday when he was in South Lake, Texas.

When he left Albion in late August, Kent intended a 100-day trip that would cover 26,000 miles. He wanted to drive through 48 states (all but Alaska and Hawaii).

Kent scrapped the plan, preferring not to stick to a strict schedule. He estimates he has talked with more than 2,000 people on the trip, often when he is charging his car.
