Re: How long 'til 4th bar drops?

Sun May 14, 2017 7:43 am

Dropped my 8th bar last night. 43.466 AHr and 72% SOH. I guess the 8 bar is not dependent on SOH at all. I'm surprised that I dropped my 8th bar at such a high AHr, but no complaints.

Now... do I get the lizard now or wait until summer is over...

Congrats! It just depends on your mileage and needs. If the current range works for you, I would wait as long as you can without going over the 60k miles.

I went out and took a reading today. Mine is still holding on to that 9th bar. It should be dropping soon, probably when it gets warmer. Based on the numbers, I'm surprised it has not already dropped.

The vehicle was manufactured in January 2013, spent the first two years in Georgia, was auctioned after lease return and
brought to Las Vegas. I got it in March 2015. It dropped the first bar in October 2015, the second bar in June 2016, and
the third bar in November 2016.

May 15, 2017 - AHr=40.96, SOH=62%, Hx=55.96%, odo=25,169 miles, QC=4 L1/L2=1989

apparently, I have not made the proper sacrifice to the leaf battery gods.
I still have 9 bars. How, I dont know, but I do.
