I am planning on buying used Zoe, and my biggest concern (of course) is battery life and its degradation. I know that all lithium batteries degrade if charged to 100% and if kept on such SoC for longer periods. So there obviously should be an option to set the charge limit, right? Is there one?
Given that lithium ion batteries degrade with time and energy throughput, will deliverable power also be affected by state of health (SOH) degradation along with capacity?
Internal resistance increases as the battery degrades which means output current will get limited. Expanding on that, is...
Valence U2712XP. Check valence.com for detailed specifications.
Best Lithium batteries in the market retailing new for $2000. These ones have been very little used.
They normally have a life of 4000 cycles DOD at 80% which means that if charge/discharged to 80% every day they would last more...
I have a bulk quantity of U2712XP batteries from Valence Technolgy.
They have been tested and fully chraged. History log shows via CANBus that they have been charged an average of 50 times or less, so they are practically new.
If you want to know more details please call me on...
