Not really, because there will be some degradation in all old cells. Just replacing the very weakest might bring you back up substantially, but it would never be 100% unless they were all brand new.MrIanB wrote: 1- isn't the battery fix as easy as replacing the weaker/damaged backs and that will bring the battery pack back to 100% like new?
I'm with you. But I can only imagine it would be a cost thing.MrIanB wrote: 2- if they replace the battery after down to 8 bars, they made it seem like they would bring you back up to a certain level but did not hear 100%. Now that makes no sense to me, that is like having a damaged tire covered under warranty and giving you a barely used "new" tire vs a brand new tire. What am I missing here?
The most disingenuous part of the story from Mr. Palmer was the "enormous cost" of swapping battery packs, which I took to mean the labor cost (or labour cost, as Mr. Palmer would probably write). Well, we all know that the book calls for (IIRC) 2-3 hours in total to R&R a LEAF battery pack. In my head, that's not a massive amount in the big scheme of things. Heck I would be willing to pay that out of pocket for a new pack under warranty, and not feel at all cheated for having to do so.
