I would say we Use fast charging (L3) about 10 times a week That's a lot more than I do! :shock: Great that it still seems to be in good shape! I haven't got canion yet because I don't want to get paranoid about monitoring cell health. I have only ever L3 charged to 80% and I don't think the L3 cha...

Re: High Mileage - 2014 Miev - Level 3 winter battery charging time

Yes ,I agree It looks like the battery has really held up well Looks great. :D Do you know of any other imiev's that have covered this type of distance? How many times have you charged using level 3?

I paid 10 GBP for my front wiper bla...
