CAC of the original Roadster battery

This site may earn commission on affiliate links.
Checked today. My 2010 Roadster Sport has a CAC of 139.5. 60 000 KM.

Wasn't there a graph showing the CAC numbers of the original Roadster battery?
That is exactly what my car (also a 2010, but non-sport) has. 46k miles, 139.5 CAC. Standard charge comes in at about 163 miles. I think we're slightly on the lower side of normal, but still very much within the expected range.

I think the graph you are referring to is the battery survey that was conducted a few years ago, posted here: https://survey.pluginamerica.org/tesla-roadster/PIA-Roadster-Battery-Study.pdf

A CAC of 144.2 should Standard charge to something about 170 miles, not 136. You might want to look at the battery's cell balance, or do a discharge to 20%, followed by range charge, and see if that number improves. Something's not quite right.

That could be estimated instead of ideal miles. Or I could read that as it doesn’t fully charge overnight on 110v. Ironically, the 10a charge should result in a higher than expected range. All the more reason that CAC is the number to use.
 
Just took a screen shot
Ideal range is 172 miles
