Please go to “Topping of Bad for Battery” topic. They meant topping off. In this string of dialogue, there is a place that states Ford has SOC at 100% actually only charges to 90% of capacity and SOC at 0% actually is 10%. That is 20% of 23 KWh battery - very close to the useable 18 KWh when new. I do use a TurboChord 240v 16 amps. It puts in 3 KWh per hour. I have had a fusion energi, 2015 focus electric, 2017 focus electric and clarity electric. So far with slower charging, very little battery degradation - maybe 1 or 2 KWh after the third year. Battery does not heat up as much with slower charging.
We have one more year on Clarity lease - return Clarity and trade-in Impala for long range Model 3. Payments and insurance would be the same monthly cost. Then purchase Focus Electric for $7917 when its lease up. Wife still feels that we need one gas car. She wants a RAV4 Hybird instead of Model 3. Happy wife for happy life! Maybe Model 3 just like the dream car of teenage years, never realized. We cannot afford a RAV4 and Model 3. Thank God I really like the Focus Electric!
