Re: Early Adopter Mistake - Running on Empty

Another update. I am now over 116,637 miles on my replacement battery and I finally lost my first Capacity Bar (11 out of 12). I'm still charging 100% during the week and 80% on the weekend. This is a dramatic difference in battery capacity from my original battery.

Hey first off thanks or posting the details so often. I am actually amazed you stuck with the car for so long. Kudos.

I am not sure but it looks like you got your new battery at about 73k miles and now you are at 116k, so you lost the bar (~15%) after 43k miles ; 15%/43k = 3.4% per 10k miles, which sounds really good for these cars. My 2015 is at 13%/35k = 3.7% per 10k.
2015 Leaf S. Red. 36960 miles. Great car but traded in for Tesla Model 3 on 12/17/2018.
