Definitely. I don't think anyone under 30 years old remembers the whole 'memory' effect and charging games of the older batteries.
I agree that much of the 40+ crowd (people more likely to be buying the Model S) would likely listen to what Consumer Reports says, even if they don't subscribe to the magazine so a positive review certainly wouldn't hurt.
To this very day I still have an almost uncontrollable urge to discharge my iPhone or other devices before I charge them. It literally seems unnatural to me.
It's also been recommended by Tesla for Roadsters that have packs that are out of balance. Not a discharge to 0 and let it sit, but a deep cycle nonetheless.

Does anyone know how long it takes Consumer Reports takes to complete testing? When should we expect an update on the Model S review? Its been over 2 months since they took delivery!
