I guess I'm the 5th(?) guy in AZ now who officially lost a capacity bar (happened today).
I almost always charge to 80% only, and maybe once a month I charge to 100%. When I charge to 100%, it's only because I need 100% and usually I charge from 80% to 100% just before I leave, so I don't let it sit at 100% for very long. I always plug the Leaf in as soon as I get home to top off to 80%. But if it's during Peak hours (1-8pm summer, 9-5 am/pm in winter), the Blink is off during peak so the Leaf doesn't get topped off until Off Peak hours kick in.
I charged to 100% this morning for a trip, and noticed 12 charged bars on the left, but only 11 capacity bars on the right. Is that normal or is it kinda odd that there's more charged bars on the left than the capacity bars on the right?
Anyway, I've had the car for almost a year now (about 2-3 weeks shy of a year), and I'm at around 16.5K miles. I always garage the Leaf. Only used the DC QC at Riverview Toyota a couple of times a few months ago when it went online. Most of the times it's L2 charging from a Blink in my garage.
Last summer the highest battery temperature I saw was 7 bars.
I also notice that lately, my 80% charge completion only shows 9 bars instead of 10 bars. This phenomenon started happening maybe 6-9 months ago once in a blue moon. But it's now happening almost on every 80% charge. In the past, if I restarted charging just for kick to see what happens after 80% completion, the 10th bar will show up under a minute or so. Now the 10th bar wouldn't show up until 5-6 minutes later. Note sure if that really means anything anyway.
I have not taken my Leaf back to the dealer for the 1 year battery checkup yet. I'm planning to do so in early June.
