and you verified your battery capacity with what?jspearman wrote:I agree with Tony. I didn't have this kind of range loss in August of last year, when it was equally hot, so why now? Why weren't we seeing these temp adjustments last summer? Something is rotten in the state of Arizona, and it's not just Jan Brewer.TonyWilliams wrote:While everybody is pontificating about temperature adjustments to available capacity, please address why I had 15-18% loss of RANGE / AUTONOMY in 75F temperatures? And a similar numbers of performance reduction from other LEAFs in other "hospitable" climates?
Is the rational that it would just get worse with temperature, and then magically improve as the temperature returns to hospitable? If so, then we can just take one of the many affected Arizona LEAFs, and air condition it overnight, and then wake up early with a full, cooler 100% charge in 75F early morning in Phoenix, and voila, range and capacity bars restored.
Good luck, but we don't have to guess. Another variable that is very easy to test for.
