    The value of a 2nd hand Roadster should take into account the quality of the batteries. One could give it a full charge, and then drive whatever distance it takes for the batteries to drain them completely. But I was hoping there would be an easier way.

    Has anybody ever given this any thought? Is there any way to reliably test the quality (not SOC, but lifetime quality) of an ESS?
