    I know there's thousand of posts about charging but here's another. I have been reading that guys with 60's can charge to 100% since it's not really 100%

    I have 2016 - 70 delivered last April

    Can I do the same thing?

    Thanks

    Only the software limited 60s can do this. I think your 70 is actually a 70 so 90% is your safe daily charge.

    If you have the option to software upgrade your 70 to a 75, then it's really a 75 battery so you should be able to charge to 97 or even 100% on a more frequent basis in a safe manner (for the battery).
