Re: The Battery Replacement Thread

Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:08 am

I checked Leafspy today for the first time since getting the new battery installed.

I've driven the car about 2200 miles since the replacement and my stats have improved from when I first picked the car up.

AHr 66.52 (65.47 before)
SOH 100% (100% before)
Hx 102.17% (100.30% before)

I've been babying the battery since getting the replacement by primarily charging to 80%, never letting the car sit at 100% if I need to fully charge, and almost never using the bottom 20% of the charge.

Even though it's cool out I had expected to have the SOH begin deteriorating immediately. Since my Model 3 SR is delayed we'll see how this car holds out during the summer if I decide to pass on the '18 Leaf.

My replacement battery had a precipitous drop in stats in the weeks after it was installed, held relatively steady all winter, and now seems to be magically improving in the warmer weather (!?) Weird, but I'll take it.
