Long-term storage recommendations

My 2014 S85 is now in long-term storage. It is plugged in and the charge level is set to 65%. My question is: is 65% the best place to keep it charged and is there any advantage to varying the charge level and letting it discharge some before bumping it up as far as battery health goes?


65 is good , here is doc from manual.

65% is good, but 50% is best (drag the slider all the way to the left). That's why 50% is there, after all.

It's also a good idea to add a couple extra pounds of air to the tires to minimize flat-spotting, although modern tires are not likely to flat-spot.
