    That's a great article. Very in depth and detailed.

    Can you confirm that the entire capacity of the battery is 24kWh, but it only uses something like 60% of the capacity (so something like 14.4 kWh available)? What is the min/max SOC that the Leaf employs?

    Actually no. I think u r confusing the volts 16kwh pack. The leaf runs as low as 10% from 100%. The actual lower end of the SOC is not known but that is what we have dtermined from carwings data. I also am charging at 110 volt and monitori.g charge from the wall with a kill a watt.
