Better question is how long will you keep playing this game
Stop worrying about it so much. The main things to avoid are:
- High temperature charging
- Keeping the pack idle at either low or high states of charge for a long period of time
- Frequently cycling the pack charge between 80% and 100% SOC
If you avoid those bad habits, then everything else is pretty much out of your hands.
Obsessing over the pack health will ruin your enjoyment of the car.
I've followed your suggestions another other common wisdom since I purchased the car. By "Grandpa" driving I watched my battery SOH drop from 100% to 91%. If I can keep my battery SOH high and extend the useful life of the battery by changing driving habits, it's worth investigating to negate Nissan's inferior battery technology.
So I am curious...
It has been about a year and 1/2 since this post... Still doing the pulsing thing? How's your battery holding up?
The main question I have is about range. Have you done any range test to confirm battery is indeed still healthy?
I'm going nuts over my battery stats dropping, mostly because I am concerned about loss of range, obviously.
I tried this pulsing thing a few times, but then stopped, realizing that it must be fooling the BMS, as there's no way it can be good for the battery.
But I am still curios.
Jim, if you're still around I am interested to hear how your battery is doing.
