There is a guy in Washington who has been doing 2 QC charges per day for some time, 80K miles and only lost one bar.ERG4ALL wrote:It would have been more interesting to me if they had gotten a battery check diagnostic before and after the 500 miles. Unless that has changed, Nissan says that one QC per day is okay, but multiple times may be deleterious to the battery.
Next weekend, unless I lose my nerve at the last minute, I'll be driving my LEAF 260+ miles in one day (round trip) to Portland for the National Plug In Day event there. I've spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at plugshare.com trying to figure out the best way to do this. There are plenty of QC stations en route, but the newly added wrinkle of $5 per QC at Blink stations has me trying to figure out how to do it without using Blink.surfingslovak wrote:I think anything north of 200 miles in a LEAF is an accomplishment in trip planning and logistics.
Since you're willing to potentially sacrifice the health of your battery, do you have means of measuring battery data for science? (Besides just the bars on the dash.)ObjetDart wrote:
Anyway I figure I'll have to do at least 3, if not 4 QCs in one day to pull this off. Thank goodness it's only a two year lease.
