Remember how the EV'ers used to say the average car only goes 20-30 miles a day.
Well, since I became an old fart.. this is true.. and those days only come twice a week !
So, here I am with my new 2016 SV 30 KwH batt.. driven 2600 miles in 9 months less then 300/month.
averaging 4.1 to 4.3 kw/mi
My charging aim is to charge to 85-88% max.
a day trip will get that down to around 55-65%
so there I am with 30-40% discharge / charge cycles.
Maybe once a month I let it charge to 100%... and maybe every other month I might get down close to the
first low battery warning.. might.
I have never seen the batt temp get 3 bars above the lower warning bars.
I park in the shade if the temp hits 90.
Lowest I have ever let it sit discharged wqa maybe 39% for a day or two..
generally I recharge the evening I used the car.. aiming for 85ish %.
Ran the leaf spy after the last full charge ( cycled itself off)
soh.. in the low-mid 90's
cell voltage spread in the low 20's
bat temp about 60F
you can never find the notes when you want them.
which seemed not too wonderful
cell spreads were lower when new.
not that it matters but clipper creek high power evse ( 40 A)
typically charges 25% per hour.
mixed use.. 1000 ft elev at home.. so up and down and
not much use above 55.. couple of miles out of 40 typical.
what can I do differently.. this use pattern wont change I don't think.
