Cool. There is one quick charger within range that has a huge solar canopy over it. Maybe one day this fall, I'll head out that way and use it.

Malm, Congratulations!. Three Bars Gained, wow! I love your Ev with Quick Charger at the end of your double rainbow.

While coming down the south side of a mountain, I was at the end of a rainbow once. The end of the rainbow was 3 meters in front of me. When I walked closer, it would fade. I was wearing polarized glasses which amplified the rainbow effect. There wasn't an Ev or a Quick Charger at the end of my rainbow. (Just an old pot of gold, ha, ha.)

After 4 years of use, this is like it looks at 100% SoC:

And after driving for 82 Km (consumption over 150 wh/km - going fast):

So it goes from 100,0% to 0,0%. Like a new one. But 100% SoC is not the same energy as in a new one.

Today was the day of the annual check. I was interested to get the current battery capacity, and they found it to me: 35,0 Ah.
(24/7/2015 - 81748 km - 35,0 Ah).

The last measurement was 6/3/2014 - 61821 km - 36,4 Ah. So, now that I'm keeping my batteries cold, loss of capacity is approximately 2% an year. :D :D :D . Feel like moved to Canada or Norway.

Percent Capacity Loss = (Initial Capacity - Final Capacity)/(Initial Capacity) x 100%
For Malm:
(36.4 Ah - 35.0 Ah)/(36.4 Ah) x 100% = 3.8%

From the 2012 MITSUBISHI "i" SERVICE MANUAL:
"If replacing the traction battery, reset the traction battery capacity information and the control information…(7) If the value, item No. 23: Battery current capacity, satisfies 45.0 − 48.0 Ah, go to the step 10."

A new battery should have a battery current capacity between 45.0 Ah and 48.0 Ah.
Malm has approximately 75% (35.0 Ah/46.5Ah x 100%) of new battery capacity after a little over 50,000 miles.

The procedure for the dealer to check battery capacity is here:

So, 3.8% in 16 months. I made my calculations with 50 Ah inicial capacity. This 3,8% is less energy then 3, 8% from 50 Ah, so it doen't mean the same thing in lost of range.
