I was thinking more like apt dweller who can now consider a leaf, because they can fast charge once a week while grocery shopping. QC'ing isn't just to make a long distance trip.
not sure there is any evidence that shows short duration heat being a significant cause of degradation. if it was, I would have lost about 7-8 bars by now! Been in the red a few dozen times but been at 9-10 TBs "at least" 100 times....
But the apt dweller with his 40kwh leaf QC'ing during grocery shopping, isn't doing a short-duration charge. This would be his weekly charge from 20% to 90%, because he doesn't have charging at home. This use case is most definitely long-duration QC.
Edit: By the way, 150 mile range isn't comatose driving, that's a 2-hr trip to san diego or to visit friends for a day. A QC will be needed for the return trip in case there's no L2 at the destination.
The "comatose" comment has to do with the LEAF, not the driver.
As far as a monster charging session once a week? hmmm, I think your gas roots are starting to show
