  1. Renault ZOE
    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?

Why, then does the...

    This is old hat... everyone's going to say at 6.5% I assume? That's what I thought, as that's what's always happened... until now Recently (all sing, "driving home for Xmas") starting journey at 100%, we managed a PB of 121 miles on a single charge. 4 miles and 4% left on the GOM/SOC when we...

    Hi everyone, wondered if anyone (electrical engineers, electricians, pioneers...) knows the answer to my Ice Breaker question? I've since read in the manual you shouldn't leave it below 80% for long periods. So: ~85% ±5% a sensible target that other people apply? And how long actually is 'too...
