Due to my tech (if you know the area you know why I will wait for him) leaving on vacation at noon today, I won't get the update until Aug 1st. The wait will be torturous.
So in the near future, overly cooked batteries with additional degradation, right?
Hmmm, that sounds like what you said about the 30 kwh packs but I saw very little of that and I cooked my pack "a bit"
So all the years of Leaf heat related analyzes of degradation noted on MNL resulted in misguided inferences, right?
Yes, Nissan did make some slight improvements in the Leaf's battery tolerance to heat over the years, but hardly
overwhelming or minimizing one's concern for Leaf battery heat. You've never kept any of your Leafs long enough
to really see any significant heat related degradation, besides living in the PNW provides a poor sample base location
for heat related effects.
