I am not convinced 80% every day really helped the battery. I would have already switched to 100% already.
I get to charge free at work and pay for my electricity at home. So that is a factor when I have range to spare.
Also, at 100% charge I have 0 and I mean NO regen during the majority of my drive. I find the driving profile between 0 regen, light regen, and full regen to differ enough that I try to make the charging consistent. I live in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains (Appalachian Mountains). So I'm doing a lot of dowhill coasting and braking.
I won't have a choice soon and I have mixed feelings about not having regen for the majority of my driving at some point in the future.
Think about this. I can charge at both ends of my work commute but if I can't charge at one end or the other (power outage, damaged outlet, parking spots blocked).... well in those rare cases I need enough charge for the round trip. So I charge to full but don't get low enough to get my regen back unless there is a problem charging at one end (maybe 4 days out of a year).
