That pack is toasted! What was it like before it hit 100000 miles?

I rapid charge a few times a day soemtines, 7 or 8 within two days to cover the miles I have but never let the pack get above 45' which is easy to do in the current weather. I wonder what Nissan would do as a goodwill gesture along the lines they did for the 24kwh packs in the states?

If it's cost effective I would go back to quick charging in the summer months to help drag it down more quickly and speed up the process to get it replaced under warranty.
I thought all the warranty did was repair battery packs which had degraded below 75% capacity, to bring them back up to 75% again?

Car has driven about 138k miles and warranty details as:

"The Nissan LEAF & eNV200 lithium-ion battery state of health guarantee protects against battery capacity loss (less than 9 bars out of 12) as shown on the in vehicle capacity gauge for a period of 8 years / 100,000 miles* for 40 kWh vehicles and 8 years / 100,000 miles* for 30 kWh vehicles and 5 years / 60,000 miles* for 24 kWh vehicles."

Who are you replying to? No one has suggested replacing it, it's clearly out of warranty, I think it was just posted for reference.

See post 721
Ah, I see your confusion.

The quote is from post 702, referring to the 32k mileage 2 year old battery in post 701.

If you click the tiny up arrow next to "XXXXX said: " on a quote, it will show you the original context.

Infact there is mine...
Well my latest update is attached and seem to be doing well. It's been a while since I ran it down to --- and then charged to full overnight on a fast charger and it seems to help with getting the best from the battery compared to all the rapids I do on a weekly basis

Don't think I've done this before, so here it is...

2014 Gen2
24Kwh
67,035 miles
SOH 84.6%

I just plug it into my workshop charger every few days. Mostly manually stop it charging between 80 and 90%. Once every few weeks I let it go to 100%, settle for 10 minutes then plug it in again a few times.

84.61%soh
2nd gen
24kwh battery
43390 miles
Dropped one bar of capacity. Went back up to 88% over last winter but the capacity bar didn't return.

Seems to be very slowly dropping health. Was 88% soh in the summer of 2017 so only dropped 2% per year

Mines Aug 2013 and I’m finding pretty much identical results to you.
Dropped to 86% last summer and rose to 88% during winter.
I am experiencing a 2% loss per year and expect my 1st bar loss any time now

Hello,

i am from the Netherlands.
in the summer it is between 20 degrees to 30 Degrees CELSIUS! no fahrenheit!
in the winter between -5 to +15 Celsius

For the guys who like to know how my car preforms in another climate.. here are my stats:


Nissan Leaf 24 kwh December 2013 ( gen2 ) accenta heated front and rear seats,heated steering wheel,folding mirrors etc..

95.000 KM ( 59.375 miles)
AHr = 54%
SOH = 83%
395.55 volt
Hx=75.01
275 QC and 3500 L2's chargings
239 GID'S
L2's are on 10 amps 220volt.. soon i will buy a cable that is 16 amp 220volt.

Bought this car from a guy who used it as a taxi...i bought it with 90.000 km..
he Always charged it to almost 100 procent.
in leafspy its says only 96% SOC..on the car display it says 100%.

i charge to 100% 3 times a week. the rest to 90%..
95% i use 220 volt home charging.. so i only go 4 times a month or so to a quickcharge station.

I don't know if what I do is right or wrong, but I don't think it hurts and it "feels" ok to me. It also may help your Leafspy to report 100% charge...

The way I see it is that the charger cuts off at 100% but the pack is still balancing, so the voltage drops as it balances (transferring the higher cells into the lower ones). That's probably why the % display drops away as soon as you start driving. So once a month, after the charger cuts off, I plug it in again after letting it rest for 10 minutes or so. I do that a few times, until it turns off almost straight away. I always go for a drive afterward because it wouldn't be good to let it sit for any length of time at the full 100%. In between doing it, I charge to around the 80 to 90% mark. Actually, I've just turned on the "long life" mode so it finishes at 80%.

Here is our May 2015 24 kWh

15858 miles
AHr 55.18
SOH 84.38
Hx 79.64
33QC and 804 L1/L2

Was a demo for 1 year then we have kept it between 30 and 80% with occasional 100% charges. Was at SOH 93 just after we got it at 5000 miles. Not sure if I’m a bit disappointed and wondering if the BMS has just lost track of where the battery is at. Perhaps a total discharge gently and granny charge to full may help the figures?

To be honest id be running it down a few times and rapid charging it to a high % and see if that helps as that's a mighty low amount of rapids you've got compared to slow charges, albeit I know full well a slow charge could only be a few % but still count
