your GID count was 264 on the replacement pack? that sure does not sound like a new one to me
278 GIDS the other day on a public EVSE, maybe my EVSEupgrade equipment at home is short-changing me. It is a new battery and I've already put over 1,000 miles on it.

Do we know for sure that they swap the entire battery? And not replacing only defective cells? (Firm references please, not deductions/theories/conjectures. [This is not directed at anyone in particular.])
Observation on range of the "new battery" will also be very helpful.
I got 84 miles out of the new pack ( new according to Nissan corporate) this week, no turtle. I haven't done that since 2011. Maybe I'll shoot for the 100 mile club tomorrow.

ok 278 is more reasonable. it is normal to see a 10 GID swing from day to day. I had gone 2 months before ever seeing 280 or 281 on my 2011 but this was after a year of ownership and I was seeing more like 273-274 which is what I thought I had after a year of wear and tear right? then one day, boom! 281! then it went back to 275 then a few weeks later, 281 again!

now my 2013 is more consistent but we see how she looks after she starts losing a little capacity
2011 SL; 44,598 mi, 87% SOH. 2013 S; 44,840 mi, 91% SOH. 2016 S30; 29,413 mi, 99% SOH. 2018 S; 25,185 mi, SOH 92.23%. 2019 S Plus; 16,686 mi, 91.51% SOH

Good decision waiting for the "hot battery pack". Will eagerly await your post on same; I think the arrival of the "hot battery pack" will be one of the biggest news items of the year for this board (and Nissan in general).
