I lost my 4th Capacity bar this morning...

104,071 Miles in 4 years 3 months. When it's in the 30s or below I get about 30 miles range.

I'm looking for a new car. I'll miss the first year and a half of my LEAF

Recently purchased my 13 SL currently with 14,361mi. I was playing around with the LeafSpy app and here are the readings I currently have:

AHr= 59.85 SOH = 91% Hx = 92.52% 384.5v 0.0A min/avg/max temps 4.004 4.009 4.013 (9mv) TempF= 63.3 63.6 61.9 (1.7)

I've been looking through the forum trying to trying to determine what the signs of a healthly battery for age and mileage is.

LeafSpy varies wildly with ambient (and possibly battery) temperature. My 13SL AHrs have varied from where yours is up to about 67.362 over a two month period.

2012 SL
Warranty expires in November 2017, but not sure I will make the 4 bar cut off. We're finally getting warmer weather in SoCal, but my SOH is concerning. I've dropped 0.5 AHr in the past 4 weeks though.

Current Stats:
53k miles
72% SOH (ever since 47.89 AHr)
44.464 AHr
Fall 17 Warranty expires.

I charge to 100% every night on my level 2. What am I doing wrong where the SOH remains so high? My AHrs are dropping, but SOH is not. Will my 4 bar be triggered by my SOH or my AHr?

I just purchased a used 2013 Leaf with approximately 36000 miles from Carvana, it was delivered with approx 70% charge, after charging overnight with the OEM trickle charger to attain 100% charge, the battery capacity is down one bar. From what I've read so far, this should be considered normal degradation. This Leaf was leased in SoCal for 3 three years and turned in at the end of the lease with approximately 34000 miles.I live in middle Tennessee(10 miles from the Nissan plant where the car was built), we can have some hot weather in the summer, but generally our climate is moderate, so I hope battery degradation over time should be normal. I am also curious if the different types of charging can affect battery capacity. We love the car so far, by the way.

Hi Gorge,

Try to bring it down to turtle if possible or at lease between 5-10 GID and then QC. Bringing it down that low and then QCing will really heat up the battery.

interesting. I also have a 2012 SL with warranty until 11/17 with 9 bars. In the last 2 months my AHr went from 45.3 (69% SOH) to 46.5 (70% SOH) and now it's at about 46.1 AHr and 70% SOH. Weird how your AHr is lower and your SOH is higher. I've read where the 4th bar drops at about 43-42 Ahr.

The last 2012 we tested was at 41ish amp hours before it was 8 bars. My personal 2011 cars were 41ish amp hours at 8 bars. Some are higher amps at 8 bar but some are lower like these examples.
