High resting state of charge


Jul 13, 2017
I generally try and follow all the usual tips about battery degradation since being able to use my model S with minimal capital expenditure over the next 10/20 years was one of my reasons for purchase.

However, I left my car at a supercharger during dinner and didn’t amend the charge limit. As a result it’s sitting on my parking spot at home at 96% SoC. I don’t intend to drive anywhere for a week. Surely I need to find an excuse to burn off 5 or 10% to ensure no excessive battery degradation now?
