Charging Leaf up to 80% of Battery Capacity

Tue Apr 24, 2012 3:56 am

Nissan promotes that the life of a battery may be longer if the battery is not charged to more than 80% of the battery's capacity. Does anyone know if there's a way to give the car instructions to automatically charge the car up to 80%, through Carwings or otherwise?

It is also well documented in the owners manual and elsewhere on this forum...

Speaking of 80% we saw an anomaly yesterday. We have the timers set to finish charging at 7am at 100% on weekdays and 80% on Sat and Sun. The car was driven on Saturday, then plugged in and presumably charged overnight to the 80% level by Sunday morning. The car was not driven at all on Sunday, so early Monday morning it charged the rest of the way up to 100% - but it didn't quite get there according to the SOC meter - charging had stopped but it was one bar short of full.
