After my discussions with lorenfb, where (s)he only saw a few degrees temp increase from QC'ing less than 15 mins, I saw an almost 30 degree increase from a 27 min QC. QC'ing that 40kwh pack will make for even higher temp increase from the higher sustained fast charging.
the temp rise especially from LEAF Spy readings takes time to equalize and as always the rise has to do with starting temp as it relates to ambient so your statement needs a lot more info to mean anything.
It was in my discussion with lorenfb. Here's the relevant posting: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=24379&p=504979#p504979
Following that chain will provide the context. It was a very warm day that day.
I think one other poster said it best. Those of us in hot areas should just protect ourselves and NOT consider the leaf.
oh ok... another waylaid conversation courtesy of one of the poorest designed sites on the web...
Yeah, couple things; I did a "few" charges during very warm weather and noticed very fast temperature drops after the charge was over like 8-10º within 10 mins after leaving the charger under what would normally not be an easy "battery drive"
This leads me to believe that some sensors are not positioned well to give a good overall temperature reading of the pack
the only other conclusion is the movement of the car was causing the temps to drop quickly which would imply some sort of venting and well all know that can't possibly be true...
