Hmmm... It still works on my cellphone. I will come back hopefully with a workaround. It has to do with a video about a longer range trip and the battery not accepting more than 24 KW after a couple of initial charges. I will try to find the poster of the video. OK, I had one letter incorrect in the string. Thanks for the heads up, fixed it!LeftieBiker wrote:It's already been yanked.
Yes, I agree. Guessing it is probably a software setup to make sure there is limited heat. Maybe it is software parameters that can be tweaked without completely sacrificing the battery.LeftieBiker wrote:It's starting to look very much like Nissan already knows that the 40kwh packs have the same design and/or build flaw as the 30kwh units. It is puzzling, though, that the QC speed restriction occurs regardless of pack temperature...

The original link had a typo in it. It's been fixed. The gist is that the 40kwh cars throttle back charging a lot from the third QC on, with all charge rates lower than claimed by Nissan, leading to charge times in the 4-5 hour range for each succeeding charge after the second QC, which is also reduced somewhat. So the 2018 Leaf is apparently a "One Fast Charge at a time" car.cwerdna wrote:Video plays for my on this page as well as on YouTube's page.LeftieBiker wrote:It's already been yanked.
Haven't watched more than about 1 minute though. What's the gist? DC FCing is slower on the 40 kWh than the 24 kWh pack? Or, it gets throttled much earlier? I saw the bit about how he was estimating that a former 48 hour trip on a 24 kWh Leaf w/33 DC FCs he estimates would take 5 or 6 hours longer on a 40 kWh car.
