always charged to 100% anyway
That is not a choice I would make.
my battery degradation wasn't much worse than anyone else I've read here given the hot climate I live in.
I live in a high desert climate in the Southwest. Our LEAF battery has been degrading at a loss of ~ 1 Ahr (about 0.33 kWh) a year. Was that the experience you had with your LEAF, or is your memory playing tricks on you ?
OP, one can mitigate the damage by limiting the time the battery sits at or close to 100% SoC. As noted above, set the charging to end ~ one hours AFTER the expected departure time.
And, DO NOT leave leave the LEAF in a hot, unventilated garage. That is how you poach an egg, and how you poach a LEAF battery.
