I recently acquired a very early Roadster 1.5. The battery was replaced in January 2014 (3 years ago) due to bricking. The car has been driven ~3,000 miles since the new battery was installed and has a full standard mode range of 182 ideal miles. The Roadster is not my daily driver and will be driven every 2-4 weeks. I plan to get OVMS so I can have greater control over setting the state of charge (SOC), but I'm waiting for the 3.0 version of OVMS to become available. QUESTIONS: 1. Is it better to maintain charge in Storage Mode or Standard Mode when the car is stored between drives? 2. I thought I read somewhere that OVMS allows the vehicle to maintain a state of charge (like 50-60%). Is this a better strategy and if so, what SOC should I maintain the battery at when the car is stored between drives? 3. Please share your charge strategy if your Roadster use is similar to mine. Thanks!
