Hi all! I saw a very small number of threads on this without a definitive answer. Seems to be reminiscent of the old 60kwh pack being software limited to 40kwh, but there wasn't a definite answer then also. Since it seems to be difficult to determine a definite yes or no, is charging the 60 to 100% and then driving immediately an issue? I am under the impression that keeping the battery at 100% for longer periods of time is what causes negative effects over time, not the act of charging it to there. I have a 90 or so mile commute round trip and worry during the middle of winter that pre-warming my vehicle for the drive home might give me range anxiety as my work does not have a place to park that is not in the elements and I'd hate to get stuck running out of juice on the way home. There are no chargers anywhere near my work.

Not an expert here, but as I understand the MS60 system, you actually have a 75 kw pack. If you filled the 75 kw pack to 100% and let it sit, you could do damage. If you fill a 75 kw pack to 80%, you fill it to 60 kw. So, if you fill your 60 pack to 100%, you are not in the damaging range. Because of the software limitations, you could NOT fill the pack to 75 kw. So, fill your MS60 to 100% as often as you wish. If I am wrong - I would love to have some smart folks correct so fasteddie7 and I don't go dancing in the tulips.

i don't think there's anything wrong with charging to 100%! charge away! and have fun! :)
