I wonder if someone might take a look at the log I've recorded over the past month or so with the magic of LeafSpy Pro. It is at the following link:

My concern in the SOH of the battery (as per previous postings). A bit of background regarding our new-ish 2016 Nissan Leaf:
- We took possession of the car on May 31st. The car was manufactured in January 2016 (according to the label on the inside of the driver's door)
- We always -- and I do mean "always" -- drive in Eco mode and have never seen the battery temp warmer than 5 bars (including after the occasional fast-charge on a longish trip). We have never driven faster than 66 mph (except perhaps briefly going downhill on the freeway).
- According to the CarWings website, our average miles per hw-hr over the past 6 months is about 4.7 or 4.8 mi/kw-hr.
- We have driven a total of 2,661 miles in 6 months (that's right, we only drive about 100 miles per week on average)
- We charge mostly at 240 volts @ 6.6kw (using a public charger), and have done 16 quick charges (though some were only a few kilowatts). Sometimes we use our 120 volt trickle charger (but as I've noted earlier, we certainly have not done a total of 80 L1/L2 charges (some must have been done at the dealership)
- When not being driven, the car spends all of its time in our garage. The temperature range in the garage over the past 6 months has been a high of about 90 degrees (in the midst of the summer) and a low of about 40 degrees (right about now).
So, I think we've treated the car gingerly.
What I'd like to know is: Is the trend in SOH (from 89% to 87%) indicative of a problem with the battery? For what it may be worth:
- when we do a 100% charge, there are still 12 bars on the Leaf's dashboard display
- LeafSpy Pro currently reports a State of Charge (SOC) about 5% less than what the dashboard display says. I don't now what that means either.
Many thanks for insights and advice.
