Might be a daft question - but I'll ask it anyway!

Back in the early days of battery power tools (I believe Ni-Cd batteries) the memory effect was pretty bad if you didn't fully discharge then fully charge your batteries.
I know battery technology has moved on a fair bit since then, but with EV's being a 'top-up' sort of process, is memory effect going to be an issue in the future?

I don't think EV batteries have a problem. The only one is with the guessometer. Mine is particularly crass.

Afiak Nicad memory probs were bad. Laptop li-on memory probs not so bad, but a lifespan of a couple of years or so. EV li-on is a whole new game with lifespans of possibly 10 years, and then it's not about complete failure but possibly replacement of just some batteries. EV batteries when taken out have life in them long after they have left the car - long term battery storage low performance needs rather than short term high performance such as getting a Telsa 0-60 in 3 seconds.
