I've had delivery of my wife's Nissan Leaf Tekna 2019 model, 40kw battery (it's about 10 days old now), and now we're heading to Japan for a couple of months (due to job) and am taking the family with me (nice holiday for them)
I've read on the forums that I should leave the car unplugged for the duration of a vacation/holiday and leave the traction battery at under 100%, but most of the posts are from around 2015-16 so probably won't be the same for a 2018/2019 model.
Now I've seen people say it's fine for a three week holiday, but I will be abroad on assignment for 2 months. Will the 12v battery still be fine?
Should I hook it up to a battery tender (-ve to -ve on battery and +ve to +ve on battery)?
Incidentally , the wife's previous car (Mercedes ICE) was left on a smart battery tender for a couple of months and it was fine when we came back.
So.... should I put it on a battery tender, or just leave the car unplugged for the duration?? Any advise? Anyone left the leaf for an extended period of time?
TLDR - leaving brand new leaf for 2 months whilst out of country. Should I hook the 12v battery to a smart battery tender?
