...In conclusion, my current Ah reading of 53.6 is 81% of a new LEAF's ~66 Ah. My energy used to charge is about 78-80% of what a new LEAF pulls from the wall to charge from turtle to 100%. If anything, the car is over-estimating capacity, not under.
I've posted a reply, on-topic, at:Collecting data:Off-the-wall power for turtle to 100% chargeviewtopic.php?f=31&t=6876&p=365452#p365452
The real question, as far as I am concerned, is what are the results for LEAFs with far more miles, that have experienced higher ambient temperatures, or have seen far larger gid/ capacity bar losses than drees or my LEAFs have.
Have any eight-capacity-bar LEAF reported either constant-speed range or recharge data, since the one LEAF in the Tempe range test, which with~39% gid loss, only range-tested (with 59.3 miles at ~62 mph, very
roughly) ~20%-25% capacity loss? http://electricvehiclewiki.com/Battery_Capacity_Loss
I understand folks are mostly concerned with getting your own batteries replaced under the 5/60 warrantee, but it would be very helpful for those of us who may not receive any warrantee coverage, and are still wondering (thanks to Nissan) what our replacement batteries will cost, if you could help us to know when
we can expect to need to pay for one, by posting recharge or range test results.
