I thought the degradation was caused by a combination of:
- high temp
- AND/OR high state of charge
- TIMES the duration (number of hours spent in the above conditions)
That is, lots of time spent at 100% charge will degrade the battery (like people who charge to 100% as soon as they get home); and lots of time spent at 8 or 9 temp bars will degrade the battery (like people in Phoenix). And many hours with both high SOH plus high temp would be the worst situation.
But, if the damage were proportional to number of hours, then having high temp or having 100% charge for only a few hours, a few times a year, would make little difference... at least, that was what I thought I'd read here.
