What is the build month n the driver's side door sill sticker?

Lesson #1: keep the battery as cool as is possible in your hot climate. Also don't charge when the battery is hot (above 6 temp bars) and especially don't use Quick Charge (if you have the port) when the battery is hot. 120 volt "L-1" charging seems to cause little or no heating of the battery.

Thanks for the tips. Its in the safe zone 7/13. I knew that heat would be a problem in Fl so yes i will keep that in mind. I plan to stick with the L1 charging at home. Nissan ZeroE charger says direct wall plug in only, is there any easy ways to extend the cord to the street without buying a new longer one?

A heavy duty, genuinely high quality extension cord rated for 1800 watts will work. The problem is that with everything now made in China, there is quality variance even within batches of the same brand and model.

I just purchased a used 2013 SV. This is my first EV. What is the concern with the build month?
