Now that we have some working hardware for displaying the SOC (as a percentage, using 281 as 100%) as we drive, post and discuss the data readings here.
ONLY data for the LEAFs with the updated firmware, where the "fuel" indicator "bars" are affectionately called "New-Bars".
Comparisons to Old-Bars may be made if helpful to the new-Bars discussion, but clearly distinguish the Old-Bars data.
I think my Old-Bars SOC read 98.9 after charging to 100% overnight. It "should be" the same SOC for old-Bars and new-Bars.
Also, we "think" that the SOC for Low Battery warning, Very Low Battery Warning, and Turtle Mode should be the same for both the "original" and "updated" LEAF firmware.
It is currently presumed that only the SOC values that trigger the Bar-On and Bar-Off display changes are now different, with each Bar now representing a bit less capacity. So, now there is apparently a "hidden" reserve, after all the Bars disappear, that you can no longer see.
The SOC-Meter gives us some way of examining that "hidden" capacity. If we CANNOT use it, we have effectively "lost" that capacity.
