If anyone from parts far away are going to the parade, my EVSE is all yours that day. I'm about 3 miles from the beach in Santa Monica.

2. We do not yet know how the LEAF's "SOC" is derived.
3. Several people have reported noticing lower "Bar" (or "SOC") values after charging to 80% (or even 100%).

Some seem to have been due to "mistakes" in the charging.

One possibility is that the battery has finally gotten enough out-of-balance that there is significant after-charging balancing going on.

Correlation to battery pack temperature seems inconclusive.

Actual Pack Aging, and real Capacity Loss MIGHT be a factor, but most have only reported "bars" and not the more definitive "SOC-Meter" values.

In the next version of the SOC-Meter firmware, I will try to include the "Capacity" number (similar to the LEAFs "SOC" number).
My morning numbers after a 100% charge last night:
bars: 12
SOC # 257
SOC % 91.4
miles to date: 4,464
Leaf age: about 5.5 months.

surprising and disappointing.

Finally! Welcome to my world. :D ;) But know those numbers will bounce around some (well, actually, a lot) - best I've done is 99.6/280, worst I've done was around 92% (and I didn't check what the raw number was).

Clearly, something is going on.
We just do not know what is causing enexpected reading at "100%".
It is unlikely that it is anything in the SOC-Meter itself.

In spite of the Socal Power Outage, we will meet at HTB in Cerritos as planned.
Cheers, Gary

I still hope to be there. Being in an all-EV parade sounds like fun. Your earlier suggestion to charge at Downtown Nissan looks good to me.

Did some of you more southern residents have to post by candlelight ? Were phones (cell & line line) working ? Internet ? Is power back on this AM ? It is scary how fragile the grid seems to be.

I was 2 blocks South of the shutoff-line (into the blackout zone).

The grid is way too tightly connected at the hip(s)!

I plan on making it to the meeting tomorrow.

Gary is it possible to get a flash update for the SOC meter after the meeting?

Thanks!
