Of course I'm talking along the lines of LG Chem, and not stuff like BMS Battery.

do the on board systems keep a log of recharges?, part recharges? , total kWhrs recharged ? etc
how "hack - proof" is any of this data ?
Or how will a buyer know the remaining "life" left in the pack.?
Is there any accurate way of testing the true condition of one of these high $$$ packs ??

No, its lithium manganese. NMC is next generation battery which in 2009 Nissan said would be available in 2015.o00scorpion00o wrote:afaik it's nmc ?

but who gets to drive at 70 mph consistently or average. The only way you could do that is on a country /interstate freeway...
..... and that is not the use cars like the leaf were designed for.
They are intended for urban commuting, which is low average speed , multi stop start situation.
my ebike battery has a capacity of 37v x 15 Ahr = 555Whrs theoretically, and i know it uses 1180 W at 30mph ( Wattmeter )
so by your calculations method i would have a range of < 15 miles and need to recharge every 30 mins or less .
Well the reality is i rarely get to ride at 30 mph around town (?) often riding for over 4 hours and traveling over 30 miles distance, without ever draining the batteries ( 400 Whrs used).
OK, on a Ebike there is the possibility of pedaling, but i dont do that much, the real difference is speed and power demand for that speed.
I suspect a typical Leaf is going to be doing a lot of 20 -30 mile trips with few full discharges. Majority of recharges will be "top ups" ... does anyone know how that affects battery life ? ..
