This is just a small design glitch in the 2011 and 2012 LEAF.dwl wrote:... Can anyone please advise whether there have been issues with different reported SOC values between DCQC and Leaf Spy for 2011-12 models and if so the improvement achieved for which firmware update.
The DCQC % does not match what you see inside the LEAF. The LEAF indication at DCQC of 100% is usually only 11 of 12 status of charge bars. If you want that last little bit to get to 12 of 12 you have to use L2.
This is for 2011 and 2012. 2013 and 2014 act differently.
The 2011 and 2012 will charge to nominal 100% if the status of charge is above 50% when you start. Below 50% they will stop at 80%.
Once they stop at 80% you can restart and they will then go to 100%.
I'm not aware of any Lithium Battery Controller changes to fix this. Possible it could be done when they replace the battery.
But I don't think that is the case.
Maybe one of the lottery winners that have a new battery can confirm.
