A bit smaller, yes. The NREL model says we use 84% while the Nissan public comments said 80%.LakeLeaf wrote:That's actually smaller then I thought. The previous primary speculation seemed to be ~30kW pack running between 10% and 90% for a usable capacity of ~24kW.
It would seem from this report that the pack may run from 5% to 95% for ~24kW of usable capacity?
84% of ultimate for 24kWh is a 28kWh pack.
It's looking like the NREL model's 84% between 95% and 11% is looking pretty accurate - and also fits better with Nissan's suggestion that 80% charges will improve pack life.
