I just now saw the *highest* reading of capacity that I ever saw on a 24kWh pack.
I had tried to buy a recent battery from my favorite dismantler for some time now
and finally I decided to go to a different dismantler and lo and behold, they had a Leaf pack.
Not from a recent Leaf (I had been trying to buy a pack from a low mileage 2015) but the best they had was a pack
from a 2013 Leaf that was from Washington State, so a colder area. Should still be good and probably still be a 12-bar.
I tried to negotiate price as it was quite high, but the pack was only 4 days in inventory, so no go on any reduction.
take it or leave it.
I thought about it a minute and then called back and said I would take it.
So, I picked it up yesterday and was a bit bummed that the transport of the pack had resulted in a busted connector.
After a bit of hacking, I was able to hook up 12V and CAN bus to connect the ELM327 bluetooth dongle to the pack
and power the LBC to get its readings with LeafSpy.
WHAT THE HECK! 67.36 Ah capacity!
That is impossible, how can a pack from a 2013 have higher than new capacity!
So then I finally checked the sticker on the battery and suddenly realized that what I had picked up
was a battery from a 2013 Leaf, but it was a *NEW* battery, probably warranty replacement.
Wow - I got lucky here!
I never before saw a capacity reading higher than 66 Ah on a new replacement battery, so apparently
the cells in this battery are exceptionally good!
And yes - this battery already has a new owner eager to get this swapped into his degraded Leaf, so he can again
enjoy the commute in the HOV (carpool) lane, for which he now has not enough range to make it.
Anybody else has seen capacity above 66 Ah on a 24 kWh pack?
