Similarly, the long term goal should be - no cooling. Whether today Nissan achieve that needs to be seen.
not sure I would go that far. now I have a fan on my laptop that I can never hear running. only a feeling of warmth at times near the vent and its only usually noticeable after sitting on couch with blanket semi blocking the vent.
as far as heat control, one would have to guess that Nissan has learned an expensive lesson and have come out with a more heat tolerant pack or as "Fight Club" suggests, simply weighed the cost of the fix verses hitting the right time to market.
now, some may complain about that last statement but I am seeing a lot of gratefulness on Nissan's recent actions that is something that should have been expected from day one. Its almost like an orchestrated play. We complain, they deny, they "accept" the challenge, release a better than expected solution, we are elated. So our short term elation is a substitution for what should have deeper sense of long term satisfaction.
whatever is ultimately true, it does appear that it is working too many repeat buyers, leasers and multi-LEAF households. albeit not working as fast as I would have liked but its starting to look like they started developing lizard battery much before they let on if its truly developed, vetted and tested already.
