That's great news and congratulations. We bought our 2016 Leaf SL showing 22K miles / 9 bars Oct 2019. 5 weeks later at 24K miles we lost bar #4. We trailered and dropped off the car 30 Dec 2019 and drove it home 12 Feb 2020.fergy126 wrote: ↑Sat Dec 26, 2020 4:29 pmMy warranty replacement was completed last Wednesday (12/23). I received a 40kwh battery with a SOH of 99 and 12 bars. I haven't charged to 100% yet haven't needed the extra range. VERY happy with the new life of the vehicle. The invoice was a little above $13,000 they wouldn't give me a copy but glad it was $0 out of pocket for me. Now I need to determine the proper techniques to maintaing the life of the new battery.fergy126 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 16, 2020 8:00 pmReceived a call today that "batteries are on back-order" and would receive a shipment update around the 30th of December. The wait continues.
Meanwhile with the cold temps (35-45 degF) have made completing my commute (45 mi) a struggle, I think I will have to drive my ICE vehicle until the replacement is completed.
SOH on pick-up was 99.87% and lost 0.01% daily for 5 months. Taking the wife to work is two 30 mile trips daily so I started charging to 100% after each 30 trip to reduce max battery temperature rise. SOH dropped down to 0.01% every 3 days. I tried to never charge it until battery temperature was no greater than 10 F degrees over air temperature. Putting it on the charger at 11pm and leaving at 6am was typical.
SOH was 96.07% and SOC was at 89% when it was totaled first of Nov 2020 with 12K miles on the new 40 kWh pack.
A few weeks later we got the bent sheet metal and crushed condenser/radiator removed and took it for a 2 mile test at freeway speed to make sure it drove and handled well before buying a parts car. We got a parts car last week. SOH has been at 96.05% for the last month. We observed leaving the 12v battery was leading to SOH decline. Charging often and to 100% is our plan until Leaf Spy data calls for a charging protocol change.
Use Leaf Spy data to find the charging protocol that works best with your climate and usage.
Note lithium plating is most aggressive early on so as it slows so may the SOH rate of decline.
