    clarification/correction .. I didn’t give a ‘fair’ representation previously when I did the 4-5 year .. because any other battery type used will also have degradation .. for example , batteries similar chemistry and treatment as Tesla sees a warranty of no more than 30% loss in 8 years .. soo if Tesla starts with a ~250wh/kg cell level then in ~8years it might only be expected to still have ~175wh/kg left .. a 400wh/kg Licerion at it’s last reported / tested ~20% loss in ~800 cycles .. 8 years with 365 charges per day is 2,920 charges / 800 = 3.65 sets of 800 .. 400 to 320 set 1 , 320 to 256 set2 , 256 to 204.8 set3 , ~178wh/kg to 0.65 of 4th set .. aka what that means is that after 8 years of daily use they would be roughly t the break even point .. but for the first 7+ years in the same vehicle space and weight the Licerion would offer more wh of battery capacity .. ~60% more when both are brand new.
