A LEAF charging optimization thought I have been mulling over that I think Bjorn Nyland has also mentioned is to drive faster during the first part of a leg and slower for the 30 - 45 minutes before you reach your next charging stop. Perhaps 65 and 55 mph as a WAG. Your goal is to not be hobbled by rapid-gate. It will help you to monitor battery temps throughout your drive to help plan driving speeds.

Two other thoughts:
At long stops (e.g. a meal) do not start charging until the battery temp is below rapid-gate level

You can "speed" during the final leg to your destination if needed
Right now, heat gained during driving will be minimal and in the morning will actually go down if temps are over 100º. Over the past several days (temp change) I have only been charging 15 mins on QC and haven't seen 80º (which is actually below optimum for QC) yet. But pack is starting in low to mid 60's.

Hey has anyone with an Eplus run their battery down under 10 percent.

What happens on the display? Does it still display in percent or range.

Any idea on the reserve?

Just a curiousity thing. Not counting on running it down that far. (But ya never know :) ).

Oh. One more thing. Our 2016 still has a CD player. I’m assuming that’s gone. (We have had the same James Taylor CD in ours for 3 years so it won’t be missed).

Thanks all.

The CD player departed with either the 2017 or 2018 model year. Bastids!

None.

Any appearance of a reserve is a poorly calibrated battery that is transient. The people peddling the notion of a reserve are clueless.

Thanks for your input. I asked this once before and got a couple replys but am interested in as many experiences as possible.

If the range or SOC remaining below the GOM cutoff is consistent, then it is a reserve at least in effect, and you are putting people off for no good reason. We need more information, not dismissive snark.

Read again. The miscalibration is ***transient***, aka not consistent.
The only reasonable thing to do with the "reserve" BS is to dismiss it.

I read what you wrote. How do you know that the "miscalibration" is "transient"...? You tend to throw a bit too much of your personal biases into what you write, so I don't by default accept everything you state as fact as...fact.

I have also seen north of 5kW left when gauge hits 1%. VLB happens miles after the gauge hits 1% and range flashes.
