EV batteries are impacted by extreme hot and cold temperatures, which can effect their performance and life.Where a warm/hot battery battery could hold a charge longer but could impact life.Whereas a cold battery would not hold a charge as long. I understand, during charging there is heat gain. More with fast charging. What is the ideal temperature for (Aperta’s) lithium-ion batteries 40-100 kWH packs ?
1) while in a garage/charging
2) operating temperature Could routine normal charging vs rapid charging be optimal for battery life? I imagine charging frequency and use power(%drain) might factor in too...
🤔I understand there was a 2015 “lizard” battery, which are more heat tolerant. Any experience on that technology? If any advantage...could certain lithium-ion batteries types be considered / offered for different climatic zones?
Living in the SW... impact from heat would be my immediate question, but I also do cross country travel in the winter months.
I don’t own an EV vehicle so I am not sure what manufacturers out there are recommending and what people are actually realizing.
