For all practical purposes it doesn't matter. In fact, if the car was never "range charged" (or "max charged" to 100%) then the range estimate is likely mis-calibrated and reading low. These sellers are presuming that their cars have less battery degradation because they have never charged the battery to 100%, but they would have no way to actually prove it. The only way to determine battery health is to ask the service center for a particular car's CAC value and compare against the CAC value of a brand new delivery. I've read in the forums that a healthy, brand new 85 kWh pack should have a CAC value of 155-160.
It is like manually quitting all of your apps on your iPhone, which does nothing really, and is based on incomplete information.
Argh. I won't take this discussion farther than this: in 2012, I travelled accross the border, with a triple broken leg, to do a session where I showed what actually happens on the phone when you quit an app. Using Xcode, you can see which apps are actually running (about 1 to 3 at the time).Ugh, no kidding. Whenever my g/f's (college aged) daughter gets a hold of my iPhone, the first thing she does is "close" all the "open" apps. No matter how much I tell her that's an "old thing" and doesn't matter any more, it just doesn't change. I try to explain those aren't "open" apps, but just "most recently used" apps. No difference. For years now, she always does it to anyone's phone she might need to borrow.
You are welcome. The question is: what will you do with that time from now on?But I think the point isn't whether it's a recently opened app or a running app. The question is does it a) use up battery and/or b) slow down iOS? I've always shut down all apps like HLR's g/f's daughter but after reading this thread and doing some online research I've learned I've been wasting my time.
You are welcome. The question is: what will you do with that time from now on?
Same for those that actively spent time avoiding the occasional range charge! You can now drive farther without charging and not feel bad about it.
(See! Back on topic. Don't thank me, I do it for the children.)
