Garaging (storing) a 2020 LEAF for extended periods of time

Sat Mar 07, 2020 4:07 pm

With my 2012 leaf, when I leave it for extended periods of time, I put a trickle charger on the 12-volt battery and I charge the traction batteries once a week.

Should I do that with a 2020 LEAF?

The maintainer (not so much a dumb trickle charger) is a good idea. I see no need to charge the main battery unless you are expecting frigid weather. Leave the charge at about 40-50%.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Don't charge the lithium battery, that's the main thing.
