Re: Battery Degradation 2020 Bolt Relative to 2017 Bolt EV

This may be too complicated for me.

How often do you charge?

I plug in every time I return home.

Re: Battery Degradation 2020 Bolt Relative to 2017 Bolt EV

Paul: once again, a great report!

Once we get our new batteries (are we getting new batteries or are only our battery cells being replaced?) what measurements can we make when new so that we can measure degradation over time?

Re: USB ports

Purchase one of those cigarette lighter accessories that provides higher capacity USB ports and plug it in under the front dash.

Re: Chevrolet/GM update on new battery software package

Am I mssing something? Is this any different than simply setting "Hilltop reserve" (for older Bolts) or setting max SoC to 80% on newer Bolts? Well, I *suppose* that it does have some diagnostic features that will warn if it detects bad cell(s) ... At a minimum, it eliminates your ability...

Re: Buyback Process

Thanks I will check over there too.
