80% of 80%?!?!

HI,

Have bought a used leaf which is down to 10 bars. I know that you are meant to only routinely charge to 80% to prolong battery life, but does that still stand when the battery has degraded to about 80% anyway?!

Yes, but 90% or even 100% indicated is ok in cold weather. Just try to drive it within a day if you charge to 100%.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
