I use 15 to 20% of the battery capacity on my commute. I have a level 2 charger at work that I mostly use. I try to let it get to 25 to 40% before I plug it in. Usually charge it to about 90%. I have used a quick charger once.
Not sure about the history of the car before I got it in late August. Bought it from the dealer in Durham. They said it had been at a dealer in Virginia. Leaf spy showed it had been quick charged six times before I got it. It was manufactured in March of this year.
And at 3000 miles the SOH is now at 92%.
Thanks for your help.
Ahh, workplace charging. this explains it all.
Is the car shaded when you are charging?
Do you have daily access to the charger?
@ 20% one way or say 50% daily, why are you charging to 90% especially during the day?
Your SOH is probably accurate. We are headed into Winter so the impact of your daytime charging will be minimized but I would not charge to more than 65-75% during the Summer.
I would charge to full when the day time high temps gets into the 50's. This will help the health of your pack by balancing cells better. plus you will use more battery during Winter.
You REALLY need to get home charging and charge at night during the coolest part of the day during Summer.
