Guessing real capacity

Wed May 06, 2020 11:27 am

hi everyone, i bought a used leaf which had a bms reset i guess so im trying to figure out the real
capacity, leafspy currently shows 83%(it went from 100 to 83 in a month) soh and when i charge it from 0 to 100 it takes about 21-21.5kw, car is 2011 leaf, any thoughts? also im curious what % of charge is lost during charging with L2 charger

The only way you will get the real capacity quickly, without waiting for the BMS to re-learn it, is to either do a range test or a a charging test. I just got up, so others can post links to those.
