If we drove daily, I'd plug in nightly. But we usually only drive a few days a week (retired), so I don't leave it plugged in all the time. My usual pattern is to plug in anytime I get home under 50%, although I often to it at 60-70% anyway (charging to 90%).

I appreciate the micro-structural explanation. Always some physical reasons that chemical or electrical degradation occur.

I love Engineering Explained! I plug in my ME every night and charge it to 80%. That should be right around the 75% mark since we can't access the entire battery. I drive less than 40 miles a day and that works for me. If I know I'm going to be out all day, I'll charge it to 100%, but it only stays at that level for a very short time. I don't really go on long trips so I don't use DCFC.

I guess you have to do a tremendous amount of brain maintenance in order to make sure that you're paying attention to all the different things that affect performance of the vehicle. You would think that a manufacture the vehicle would build in systems to make sure that the battery is constantly being optimized so that it is always performing its best and that's not to say that it's not being done but worrying about how much you charge it is crazy because you should be able to charge it to 100% like you're able to fill the tank of a gas powered vehicle to full. If you have to go through all these iterations to make something last longer I guess you could say you've put it in the category of maintenance because like washing a car once a week it helps the paint and the overall performance of the outside of the car. So electric car is really aren't less maintenance going to the dealer per se but maybe they're more maintenance because we have to pay attention to them so more to make sure that every component last as long as it can I don't know strange experiment I can tell you after 2 1/2 years of ownership that the cost of ownership is exactly the same as a gas powered vehicle. Because insurance cost twice as much the chance of getting an accident getting totaled is much greater than a standard gas powered car and good luck finding a public charger in the orange county area in California you have to wait an hour to two hours just to get one so if you go somewhere too far and you can't make it back good luck finding the charger half the time they don't work again it's not to say that I don't like my electric car but again here's where I have to plan to make sure that I have enough power to get back to wherever I'm going From and then it itself at some form of maintenance

Brain maintenance? not at all - you can charge to 100% all the time, or just charge when it's empty... it will work just fine for longer than you are likely to have it. There are long term consequences to your actions, but in the short run you will not notice it.

On the other hand... in any ICE car, never change the oil... or put the wrong kind of fluid in the wrong place, drive it a with no oil or coolant, or transmission fluid, etc. and it self destructs... the difference here is that it is familiar.

I think Jason is a charlatan. I don't trust anything he includes in his videos after watching his idiotic wheel size video. I bet if I watched this video I could pick out at least 10 things he didn't consider or 10 conclusions he made without sufficient evidence.

He's mostly right on the cell chemistry and considerations for Lion... but underplayed the difference coming with LFP, and solid state. but, for those of us with Lion in the tank, the mfg BMS is conservative enough top and bottom that you can charge however you like, and it will last for the warranty.....

or it won't, and you get a new battery.

and hang the old one on the wall in your garage to run your home
