I think the 30kwh battery is the one thing I have a love hate relationship with on my 2016 SL. (bought April 2017 - manufactured 02/16). Around February of last year it started getting a bit quirky. Prior to 2019 I had charged almost exclusively with a AV TurboCord at home at old house with a little L1 at friends house and some L2 out and about. Around probably February of last year the Eaton L2 a block from my house would start throwing faults more or less 15 minutes after starting a charge and then at random points which will clear fine with me walking back to reset and then the outlets I had previously done L1 with at my buddy's house quit charging L1. They were ungrounded so in theory it never should have charged L1 on them anyway but there's an outlet near his garage opener that works for some reason. Also started getting some of the cold weather turtle mode around the 27-47% SoC too so i imagine one of the cells somewhere is going to go bad in the next few years but when the dealer looked it over it had been on their L2 for a bit prior to them tearing into it. Otherwise I'm at 10 bars and tracking pretty good against Mark Larson's battery degradation chart that would say i probably won't have a replacement under warranty.LeftieBiker wrote: ↑Fri Jan 21, 2022 1:26 pm The 30kwh packs are a different animal from both the earlier 24kwh batteries and the later 40kwh units. Many of them degrade quickly, but many of them also don't, especially in cooler climates. The fact that you have an actual, adjusted SOH in the eighties means that you have one of the better ones. The long battery warranty on the battery means that if you move to a Hot climate and it starts to shed bars more quickly, you will very likely get a new battery in a few years. As it is, you have a range that most 24kwh Leaf owners would love to have.
I've since switched to charing L1 primarily at home and doing more QC when I head to my buddy's place so we don't have to play the car shuffle when I'm there so I'll be interested to see what the annual battery report says come April. Financially it's a bit of a slow burn stressor since if I can get the pack replaced under warranty with a 40kwh one I'm thinking I'll probably have the car til about 2035 but if not it'll be a lot of planning on whether i want to bite the bullet on a new pack out of pocket through Nissan or figuring out what still qualifies for the $7500 tax credit in my price range and aiming to purchase before IL either reduces the $4k EV incentive or runs out of money for it.
