For anyone who didn't know, Nissan released a software update to the North American market to mitigate the Rapidgate issue. This is likely the same update that the European Union received in the Spring of 2018. So if you got a 40 kwh LEAF you are looking for
NTB19-056. It’s titled “2018-2019 LEAF; LITHIUM-ION BATTERY WILL NOT QUICK CHARGE.”
Now, I am getting reports that some dealers will not install the update unless you have experienced slow charging which generally happens on the 2nd or 3rd quick charge in a day. Even if you haven't actually experienced this, simply say you have. They have no easy way of proving whether you actually experienced it or not and getting it done now means getting it done for free. This update is covered while under warranty. It will cost money if done later after the warranty expires. This may not impact you if you are not a roadtrip kinda person but you may be causing an issue to the next owner. Again, the update is free, takes an hour. So get er done!
The biggest thing I wanted to see was just how much time I would gain. So to make it easy, I selected a target based on the route of 17-18 kwh. This meant starting off without a lot of charge because my batteries were simply too cool!
What I expect to see is a temperature controlled charge. I will show you the difference below as the curve is easy to identify.
