    Charging below 50%

    I’ve learned a lot from AAKEE and a number of other users - one whose username I don’t recall, please chime in, but he mentioned he uses the stop charge function to usually charge up to only 35% and leave a 5% buffer at the end of the day. So I’ve learned about calendar aging and cycle aging...

    Losing battery rapidly [due to sentry mode]

    I parked my car at the airport a week ago, and the battery was probably around 60%.

We’ll be gone another week and I’m worried the battery will keep dropping. I’ve heard...

    Model Y Range reduced overnight

    Looking at trading my standard range Model 3 for a used 2020 Model S Long Range. When inspected the undercarriage I noticed four spots on the four corners of the battery behind the wheels, where some sort of greyish black goop was pasted on. This was very concerning to me until I looked under 3...

    For All of Those Who Challenged My Stance Over the Years on OHMMU Batteries

    This video does a GREAT job of summarizing the incredibly important reasons to NOT swap the OEM low-volt battery for one of these at any cost, let alone over 2.5x OEM replacement cost. Even if you subscribe to the "benefits" this touts, none of them apply to a Tesla given the relatively...
