      In my 2nd gen battery testing (240v), when the SoC reaches ~88%, it reports FULL (VOC and in-car gauge). It will continue to very slowly charge to ~92% over the next ~45 mins if left plugged-in.

      When I purchased my T8, I plugged the EVSE into a Kill-A-Watt meter. It drew ~10 amps (1.1 kW) at 110v.

      After charging losses, a full charge (~7 kWh) equates to ~3 mph (7 kWh * 3 mph = 21 miles).

      The most accurate estimate would be to use an ODB2 adapter ($10) and a free mobile app (Car Scanner) to monitor the current draw from the hybrid battery in realtime (with heated seats ON/OFF, etc).

      Ignore the troll. Thermally managed batteries have excellent long-term durability (100k+ miles).

      By BigTroll's logic, combustion engines require immediate replacement when the warranty expires.
