My Battery Health improved?

Thu Jun 06, 2019 9:10 am

As I mentioned in another thread - When I first got this low mileage(9500) 2015 SV, LeafSpy showed just over 85% Battery health and one capacity bar was missing. I've been using my new 6.6Kw charger and driving it from 100% to approx 30% each day since I got it and am up to 11k miles. I have also been using the timer so it finishes charging to 100% just before I leave for work so it doesn't sit at 100% for long.

I just checked leafspy and noticed the SOH was over 87% now :) Does that make sense?
I'm going from memory here - but it seems like I read that the first capacity bar goes away at about 85% and won't come back.
Should I do the hack that resets the capacity bars to full? I assume it'll stay there till the SOH gets back down to 85% again....if my memory serves anyway.

Thanks for the replies. I started another thread before reading the last few posts of this one...but as I mention in the new thread...my SOH has actually gone up.

SOH as estimate by the BMS and read by LeafSpy varies by at least +-3% from the true value. So that makes sense.

Other people have reported capacity bars returning on their own. Might happen to you. Usually isn't for long.

Do we really need a second topic on this subject?

I think I can merge this with the other topic - at least if my jumping cursor doesn't foil the attempt. Thanks.
