I'm sure this topic has been covered in part in many different threads but it would be nice to have the meat and potatos of those posts in one place.
What is the best way to approach Model S battery management? I seem to remember from my 4/3rds fat A battery designs many years ago that charge cycles degrade the internal electrodes. That would lead me to believe that charging when close to depleted would lessen the total number of charge cycles for a given number of miles/years driving. That being said, I drive my Zero to the airport and promptly plug it in at the hangar. That's a 22 mile trip on a 60 mile capacity. I then plug it in when I get home as well which adds up to two partial charge cycles per day. Zero's advice is to leave it plugged in whenever possible.
Does anyone have more up to date technical information regarding how best to manage the pack?
