Re: Maximum Miles Driven on One Charge

Thu Jul 14, 2016 3:54 pm

I recently saw my personal best of 88 RR after a 'normal day', and we've not had a heat wave yet. That's a very good sign on a 57,000 mile battery, especially considering the plight of all my friends with wilted LEAFs. MR BEAN is charged to 100% EVery night, and the delay timer has never been used. Only special treatment is a few weeks per year of storage at 40% SOC.

Nice!

My values are almost always either 68 or 75 miles. The commute home results in 68, if I go out locally to pickup takeout and approach home from the other direction I'm likely to get 75 on the meter the next day if I take it easy...

I'm up to about 1,400 added to the 11,400 on my 2012 I've had for 6 or 7 weeks. Evbatmon says 39.something Ah and 82.x %, these have been steady readings.

This will be another calibration charge, so I'm also curious to see total capacity after tonight's recharge. The last one bumped me from less than 44.4 Ah to 45.1 Ah.

My RR values are steadily in the mid 70's most every morning, dipping down to mid to high 60's in the winter.

i had another long day last week with fairly hot weather, did 68.7 miles with 5 RR and 1 bar blinking. Cycled the AC and took the back roads home--i was sweating this one, literally. Next morning another 90 RR!

How do you perform a "Calibration Charge" ?

Run it down to 2 bars or less, recharge to full.

... and leave it plugged in and charging until it stops charging by itself.

Are there any Electrical Engineers and Technical Specification information to actually calculate the Motor/VFD/Drive Train MPH sweet spot or at least range?>
Thanks,
