Presently my Leaf with 44K miles has 51.3 Ahrs when fully charged (SOC=100%) and 12 bars. The first bar now drops at about 48 - 49 Ahrs while driving.
We were talking about capacity bars dropping, not charge bars. Are you saying that the first page AH reading can't be used to judge capacity? Can anyone confirm that?
Of course, i.e. I've yet to have a loss of a bar. I just provided additional insight about my Leaf as it's driven.
The image (page) that SageBrush posted does indicate the actual remaining Ahrs (@ SOC= 100% - normalized
or whatever), i.e. a virtual new Leaf. Congrats to SageBrush.
Again, my confirmation of the Ahrs @ SOC=100% using LeafSpy on my Leaf:
"With regard to your image of LeafSpy data (64.55 Ahrs & 97%), mostly likely the Ahrs shown are based on
SOC = 100%, i.e. it been "normalized" to use that term. I will verify this with my Leaf & LeafSpy.
Presently my LeafDD indicates about 32 Ahrs (not fully charged). LeafSpy indicates 53 Ahrs and SOC = 60%
with the same image as displayed upthread (53 Ahrs X 60% = 32 Ahrs). So the percentage shown is the
present SOC of your battery, i.e. it then had about 63 Ahrs (64.55 X 97%) of available capacity left from
the last charge."
Leaf SL MY 9/13: 65K miles, 50 Ahrs, 5.2 miles/kWh (average), L2 charges to 100% > 1000, max battery temp < 95F, min discharge point > 20 Ahrs
