  2. Battery Degradation Leading to Loss of HP

    General EV Discussion
    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...
