room temperature is the standard number, low 70s.. the interesting part is that lots of cell phones are kept all day at nearly 100 degrees.. then again you are lucky if those batteries last a couple of years.

Cellphone batteries Ares completely different. They are essentially overcharged to get more ruin time and are treated at 300-500 charge cycles

Hi all,
When I received my Leave in 5/2011 my range showed 115 to 120 miles.
Now after 13 month with about 9253 miles I lost my first capacity bar.
My range with a full charge shows only 85 miles!?
At my 12 month checkup a week ago they told me that this is normal and I should not be concerned.
But I am concerned, since I drive about 70 miles per day and sometime a little more and that means I have trouble getting home some days.
I really love my Leaf, but I'm going to try to sell or trade my Leaf in the next 4 to 5 weeks.
I'm not very hopeful that Nissan will do anything and I cannot effort to get stuck in the middle of the day with an empty battery, which will happen one day since there are not enough charging stations around.

Yes, I just wish everyone would include their location in their profile so we don't have to go sleuthing around to figure it out :x

Agreed! While it's really great that so many of us share data online, tracking everything can prove very time-consuming. Wish we had something that scaled better, like the spreadsheet form turbo2ltr put together a while ago. Having a table up on the Wiki would help too. Although I have to admit, sleuthing almost becomes second nature after a while on this forum ;-)Image
