I probably lost more SOH by letting it sit this summer than if I had driven the additional 10,000 miles I put on the motorcycle. Apparently even 50% is to high. I will let it sit at 15% next year and scan the LeafSpy every month to watch what happens.
"Some" evidence emerging that a lower SOC is better but I have seen nothing that suggests anything lower than 25-30%. I have been running mine between 25-40% 4 days a week, then 30-55% on my 3 days off for over 2 months. My only charging is first thing in the morning so yeah, sitting at the low end of the SOC all night. Too early to tell but;
*PAUSE* As many have mentioned here several times before; at this time of year the numbers rate of change does slow down a lot and based "probably" on two reasons. Colder pack, somewhat less driving, etc. Don't know how much each contributes since my 2018 also exhibited this pattern during the hottest part of Summer with "medium" driving but seeing no changes for 4 to 8 days is common. This implies a 3rd reason when the pack enters a different phase of degradation. *End Pause*
I just went 21 days in a row with no drop in stats other than Hx which has continued its drop since I started the new charging pattern. I also stopped DC charging for the most part so not sure how that plays into it although when I was charging, I never heated the pack past 100º (other than experiments) which means rarely charging past 70% SOC.
But the 21 days is double my longest stretch on the 2018 of 10 days during August 2019 which was also during my slowest rate of degradation on the 2018 which included an adjustment of zero.
So... just throwing it out there.
2011 SL; 44,598 mi, 87% SOH. 2013 S; 44,840 mi, 91% SOH. 2016 S30; 29,413 mi, 99% SOH. 2018 S; 25,185 mi, SOH 92.23%. 2019 S Plus; 15, 235.1mi, 93.12% SOH
