I have other higher priority things going on my side right now (e.g. I cannot move when my taxes are due as I'd filed for an extension + day job + other items). I figure it can be a living document that's revised from time to time.

I may not be able to give it a thorough look until after Oct 15th.

Tony's range charts are at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=4295.

Thanks for the links, Cwerdna! And I wasn't picking on you in particular. I'm just hoping to have a good, useful first version done, so that if it gets posted elsewhere now it won't need immediate corrections or additions.

Just to make sure there is no confusion: Neither an LBC (lithium battery controller--Nissan name, also called BMS for battery management system) nor an actual traction battery replacement done by a LEAF Certified dealer will reset the DCQC and L1/L2 charge counts displayed by LEAF Spy Pro.

Also, it should be noted that L1/L2 charge count will increment if a charge timer is set and the car is plugged in outside of the programmed charge time. Charge count will also increment if climate control is activated by climate control timer or remote access while the car is plugged in if it is not actively charging. Therefore, one L1 or L2 charge cycle could increase the charge counter by 1, 2, or 3 counts.

While "increment" is perfectly correct above, clarity would suggest using "increase" or "increase by one" at least once, to make it clearer.

This is a good guide - I am supposed to go look at a 2015 S on Saturday.
