  1. Absolutely. My optimizing to the second significant figure IS kinda silly. I suspect if I only charge to past 80% when I really need it, avoid fast chargers (again, unless I really need it like on a long trip) and try not to go below 10% it won't make much difference even if I plug in every night. Will it make some? Probably. So maybe after 30,000 km, my battery has 5% more capacity than yours (making that up, but probably of that order).

    I have no idea what difference it makes if you charge your battery when it is cold on battery life. I know it will charge more slowly. I know cold batteries don't supply as much power either. Dunno if it impacts life.

    I own a 2020 Kona EV. I want to get the Torque Pro app, but I have an iphone and with this phone it does not work. Is there a way to have the Torque Pro with my iphone?

    When I had my Kona bought back a little over a month ago, I had fast charged the car already about 170 times and did not notice any range loss at that point.
    However, I only charged to 100% maybe 5 times in the 2 years I owned it and the lowest SoC that I ever ran the car down to was 7%.. Only went below 10% about 4 - 5 times in my 2 years of ownership
