Using clone ELM327 Bluetooth OBDII adapter with Leaf.
With an free Android app and a $15 OBD plug you can check your capacity and %charge pretty accurately. The cheap models can drain you 12V if you leave them plugged in, though.
I am at 89% but have not lost a bar yet.
Thanks for cross linking this thread. I was unaware of it. I got a cheap OBDII ELM327 scanner today and loaded the app on my Droid3.
If the sensors/app are to be trusted, I'm at 91% of original capacity and just 100 miles shy of 25,000 on the odometer. Stoaty's aging model predicts a 12% loss at my mileage in Nashville so the ELM327 scanner looks like it is accurate enough for govt work.
Which of the scanners do you recommend that will not drain the 12v battery?
I'm going to load the app on an old Droid phone so I can leave a dedicated display running in the vehicle fro accurate SOC remaining and battery temp. Knowing the battery temp will help in knowing when it's safe to plug-in during the hot summer months and frigid winter months.
Nice! The next time I see you (if we ever do another meetup) I would like to see what mine reports.
So on that topic... I know there are A LOT more LEAF drivers in Nashville now. 4 recent co-workers with leases on the 2013 models... so now there's a little shuffle over the EVSE spots at work! We should think about organizing another meet-up. I know I've been answering a lot questions/suggestion from the new drivers on how to get better range/economy. Thoughts on a meet-up?
