    Since my car is now out of warranty, I've upgraded the ESS with the newer 7.5ah 18650s from Panasonic.

    Seems like a 3 day charge has produced an excellent result :-

    I did the same upgrade a few weeks ago, with spectacular results!

    One more mile and you'd have ESS overflow into a parallel universe.

    I'd be eFFFFing and blinding if my code produced that result ..

    sorry to be so base :)
