Thank you for all of the detail. Glad to know you can drive the car down to almost 1 gid. There was rumor that the last 20-30 Gids were not usable, which does not seem to be true.
Also good to know that VLB does not audible warn the driver. Makes we wonder if it had hit VLB when I had 1% on the dash and just under 5KW remaining on Leafspy.
What’s crazy is that at Low battery you have as much juice left as a 50% or more charge on my 13 Leaf.
Noticed you SOC after charge was only 94%. That happened to me after a full level 2 charge post a major run (242 miles). Wonder why it didn’t fill the last few percent or whether if you plugged it in again whether it would add the last 3kw.
When was your SL+ manufactured?
There is an insignificant amount of power shown by LEAF Spy that is not usable since LEAF Spy displays real values which is why you never see 100% SOC. How much is unusable is dependent on the rate at which you use up those electrons at the bottom and pack balance. Turtle and shutdown are triggered by low voltage levels. Only ONE cell has to hit that level to trigger the warnings. The likelihood you will make it to one GID is....ZERO. But I am guessing you will have to see for yourself. Bring a jump box with you because going that far will likely kill your 12 volt as well. It has to work to receive a charge.
I have seen people make to 5. I have seen people getting towed at 7. In my 2013, I was getting home 3-4 days a week with GID under 10. It was like clockwork. W/O LEAF Spy, I would never have tried it but LEAF Spy literally adds 15 miles to your range.
Here is a few LEAF Spy shots. On the cell screen, you can see how wildly out of balance the pack becomes when near empty. This is what you have to negotiate to get into the last few GIDs.
