You are digging the same hole deeper. What makes you think your advice is either sensible or valuable. All you are offering is platidudes based on " what you overheard in the pub". Totally worthless.
I think it was a balanced representation of the pub chatter, sensibly steering a line between pointless worrying and adherence to unsubstantiated opinion and the lack of guidance from the manufacturers (which we might interpret as "do whatever you want").

People ask questions which we know have been asked before and the range of answers still sits in SpeakEV forums. The choice is to regurgitate the same answers or leave the questioner to receive a stony silence.

If people aren't able to either answer with their own interpretation or as @Paul_Moxhay did with a summary of opinions then what's the point.

Isn't this a place to get answers, give answers and have discussions which inform
...Not a place for childish and unhelpful point scoring

There is no risk to charging to 80% ever... but, depending on your battery tech and how your BMS works, there might be a risk to charging regularly to 100%. So my advice works for everyone that doesn't read the manual or who has a car with a rubbish manual that doesn't specify that much detail.

That's not true, though. If the BMS uses a top balancing system (many do) then doing this will result in the pack gradually drifting out of balance. I've seen this many times over the years.

@RobinB So true. Clearly my advice is not any kind of definitive answer to the OP question. Jeremy has the best answer... read the manual. But not all manuals are that detailed and people don't like reading manuals anyway so I chose to give people something they can follow that I know would not be a bad solution if they wanted to follow it.

OK... so clearly you didn't read my caveat in my post...

Of course, the caveat of always follow the manufacture's advice applies - (RTFM!), and that includes a 100% charge now and then to balance the cells if the manual says so :)
I have made the relevant bit easier to read for you.

That both agrees with your first point about follow the manual advice and the point you just made about cell balancing.

Why are people so determined to p**s me off for, what I can see, is no apparent reason?

Sorry, but where exactly is this caveat in the post of yours I quoted, because I can't see it (your snide remark seems to be quoting a different post from the one I quoted and was specifically replying to):

Totally agree but people don't read the manual most of the time even though they should. My point is that my advice is not bad advice as a starting point regardless of what battery or car you have. There is no risk to charging to 80% ever... but, depending on your battery tech and how your BMS works, there might be a risk to charging regularly to 100%. So my advice works for everyone that doesn't read the manual or who has a car with a rubbish manual that doesn't specify that much detail.

No platitudes here... just sound advice for anyone as a starting point. Of course, if your manual says something else then do that!

The problem here is that you just hate it when I am right and you will do anything to insult and discredit me. Unfortunately for you all you are doing is making yourself look like the complete ploker that you are. Now ignored (yes... another one :rolleyes: ) so your future comments fall on deaf ears. Have a great day :)
As for me being "determined to p**s me you off" that is simply untrue - you seem to be fond of using inflammatory language, not me.

Read my posts and then your reply makes no sense. I already mentioned about reading the manual and cell balancing... you seem to want to pick a fight over a specific post that doesn't mention that. You aren't Donald in disguise are you? This exactly what I mean... I mentioned the manual... I mentioned cell balancing if the manual says to do it and yet you still want to pick a fight with me. There seems to be no answer to the unfriendly attitude some people have towards me.

I don't, and have never, used inflammatory language except in response to someone being rude or attacking me. If people want to pick a fight then yes, I will fight back, but if people are friendly to me then I am always friendly back. Some people are just not friendly on the forum. I suspect they would be friendly face to face but being online seems to bring out the worst in some people.

Getting back to the topic... my advice IMO works for everyone, regardless of car, regardless of battery. But I say again... my advice is a fallback. Best to read and follow your specific car's manual (as I said) but if the manual is not specific then my advice will do you no harm. I have no idea why some people are against what I say. If they think I am wrong perhaps they could explain why rather than attacking me personally.

I was replying to a specific post that made a statement that was wrong and potentially damaging. Claiming that this is perfectly OK because some other post from earlier in this thread had a caveat doesn't cut it - apart from anything else I'd not read the earlier post you later chose to highlight at the time I replied.
