Hello Everyone, I'm interested in optimizing my battery charging routine to maximize the life of the battery. Through the research I've done, it's my understanding that there are several significant variables that need to be considered in order to avoid undo degradation of lithium-ion cells. The best practices for maintaining battery capacity are: Avoiding deep discharge, by not letting the battery drop below 30-40%. Not allowing the battery to hold a full charge for longer than 8hrs, preferably topping it off just before a long commute or road trip. Never charging a battery at extreme temperatures. Minimize the use of Type-3 chargers. Assuming that these conditions should be reasonably achievable for most drivers most of the time. I'd like to discuss how best these can be achieved and to what extent Honda has taken any of these factors into consideration with their engineering. So a few questions that come to mind, How accurately does the battery gauge reflect the actual charge state of the battery. I would assume that a full gauge would accurately reflect a 100% charge but, is the opposite true? When the gauge is reading at or near '0%', is the battery truly depleted or is there a buffer that Honda's software intentionally maintains? If so, how much? Is it possible to limit how much charge is delivered to the battery by setting an upper limit of say 80%? I understand that a thermal management system comes standard on the Canadian model. Is there a safeguard built into the software to prevent charging outside of a safe temperature range? If the car is plugged in but, not actively charging due to the charge schedule, will activating climate conditioning draw power directly from the battery? Finally, I've dug into the owner's manual that came with car but, it doesn't seem to clearly answer any of these questions for me. Does anyone know of any Honda resources that might go into more detail on these issues? I look forward to hearing back from the community. Thanks!
