oh sorry! I completely forgot to come back. It all went so smoothly that I'd forgotten I was even testing it to be honest. We did a 'small and often' technique. Drove 100 miles, 10-15 min top up and so on. Rather than 0-80/100% Charges. Absolutely no issues. In fact I found it worked a lot better than the 30kWh which on long motorway journeys overheated the battery rather quickly and became a bit of a pain.No report back yet? are you still on this 400 mile trip? That's over a week it's taken you now! Is #Rapidgate really THAT bad?
Yes because units are meaningless!And that is exactly why I say Leaf 24 or Leaf 30 etc. Because some just get daft and worked up about kW or kWh.
In this case you say you will stick with metric yet expressions of SI units is defined in law. What you've done is break the law. There's no offence created by you doing so. But nonetheless you've NOT stuck with the metric system.Not a clue, fortunately the power of the human mind, in most cases, can perform a 'know what they mean' deduction.
Haha no no personal offence taken, the units problem does come up a lot (and I silently edit a LOT of posts for this kind of thing)@Edd Beesley but on an electric car forum everyone knows what a Leaf 24 or 30 or 40 means. Is not quite the same as the other examples you are describing. It is because I didn't buy your Leaf 18 isn't it?
The other thing is does it really matter if you call a Leaf a 30 kW or a 30 kWh ? Is perfectly fine to call it 30 kW, but some will jump on that if they are in a bad mood. Everyone also knows that if your electric bill is £0.10/kWh and you boil a kettle at 2.3kWh kettle for 60 mins, that is gonna cost you £0.23. So if we use kW or kWh it makes no difference. Never more so than when your describing what model of Leaf you are talking about.
