Whatever. Just assume default Gid/Wh
Sure. I suspect most Leaf Spy users don't know about the setting and thus are using the default.
My issue is that with the default of 77.5 watt-hours/gid or whatever other value, we have no idea if the resulting kWh value is accurate at all. Unless you can tell me that Nissan has officially blessed that constant or given us conditions where the result is accurate (e.g. range of gid values where it's valid, battery temperature, battery condition, after certain things have been done or not done to the battery, etc.)...
It really bothers me that so many people are doing so much reading into and inference of values that Leaf Spy (e.g. gids, gids * Wh/gid, SOH and Hx, etc.) renders despite the fact that AFAIK, Nissan has never released any public documentation on them nor acknowledged any of them. Sure, we can compare notes, but to make assertions like "my battery holds x kWh" or 85% SOH must == 15% capacity loss, I'm not that comfortable with. Is it approximately right? Probably, most (?) of the time. Is it exact? Probably not, esp given the numbers move around a bit and can be manipulated a bit, as well.
The Gid and kWh numbers have a clearly relation to the battery voltage and Ahr. Are you skeptical of those too ?
