    a good measurement of battery health is kwh accepted during a full charge from empty to full.

    Are we able to see it on Dr. Prius or any others app?

    Thanks,

    not that i know of. some public chargers will give you the info, others have a watt meter in between the evse and the wall plug.
    you can find threads here on how and what prime owners measured

    I am experiencing this problem, visited my dealer as was told pretty much what I see in the responses to your post , however I also notice that the indicated time to full charge from no charge is way off. It was pretty accurate at 5 1/2 hours and still says that but the charging stops after 4 hours. Seems to me this is not right.

    The EV range indicated on the GOM (Guess-O-Meter) is just an estimate. It changes wildly depending on your previous driving records, current environmental variables such as temperature, and other unknown factors.

    I don't pay much attention to what the EV range says on the dash. I can have the EV range saying 20miles and drive the car 30miles, or the EV range saying 30miles and can only get 20miles out of the car. This happens to my PP all the time.

    As for the charge time issue you described, does the car show the "charging complete" on the dash after the charging session and show 100% SoC on the battery icon? If not, then the charge session was somehow interrupted. How did you assess the charge level and when the charges stopped?
