Re: Update on Nissan LEAF Battery Replacement

Sat Aug 18, 2018 10:03 am

I purchased some streamlignt batteries from eBay. They only lasted seversl months. Now when you remove the flashlight from the charger it is only bright for as few minutes. Same thing for a TRW dog nail grinder. It dies quickly removed from the charger.

I have purchased some acceptable stuff from Harbor Freight but not battery powered devices. Stay away from Chinese batteries!
2012 Cayenne Red SL traded for:
2013 Pearl White SL Premium
Traded for a Cirrus White 2014 Mercedes B (totaled)
2016 Urano Gray eGolf SEL w/ drive assist
Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body
Back to a Cirrus White 2017 B250e

Like I said, I have nothing to prove nor disprove.


I have LEAFspy, but I didn't get it to satisfy anyone except myself. It is a very valuable tool, allowing you to drive with assurance you will get to your destination or next charging stop. The range meter in the car is too erratic and encourages range anxiety. WHen used correctly LEAFSpy will give you range assurance.

LEAFSpy also informs me of the PSI of each tire. I have noticed two slow punctures in the time I've had my LEAF and got them fixed before being stranded.

Anyone with a LEAF is encouraged to utilize LEAFSpy. I suggest LEAFSpy Pro.

As for Cynics, ignore them. The internet is an unforgiving medium and you have to interact here with that at the back of your mind. There is much of value to be learned here if you open yourself to the possibility and ignore the static.

When is Autozone going to start having the $2,850 batteries I read about online?

I'm not sure these batteries are worth the price: From what I read online; they are removing the batteries from recycled Leaf packs that have already reached 80% usage. Nissan is still under the EV learning curve, way down near the bottom yet. You have to really do your homework when working with Nissan. Often times it's not what they say; but, what they don't say that screws you.
