Fair enough, thanks for tracking this down.

Owners better hope that the sensor is not near the battery.



it's not clear if the 24 hours is consecutive or cumulative?

????Is the 24 hours consecutive????
???? Is the 24 hours total during the warranty period???
???? Would 12 hours at 120F then 12 hours at 110F then 12 at 120F again be considered 12 hours for warranty issue????

Just a warning for those getting the update. My car would not fast charge after getting the update. Found this out on a long trip with the family unfortunately.

However after rebooting the car (disconnecting the 12v battery) the fast charging worked.

A better rapidgate fix - the muxsan extender battery:

Really impressive work these guys are doing, gives me hope that eventually I'll be able to replace the battery pack in my 2013 LEAF with more than 40 kWh of capacity and good road trip performance too!
