But i am still amazed how Tesla owners data show hardly any degradation of their batteries after 100k miles.


That's because Tesla's have a TMS...which reduces temperature extremes.


Doesn't matter for many people. If your battery rarely gets hot enough for a TMS to cool the battery, the TMS will do you little or no good.

Of course, Texas is hot enough it matters to you.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

I set the charging timer to 12:30 pm. I went out to leave the house at 11:00 am and the battery was at 100%.
