So here is a scenario. The battery has a warranty of 8 years unlimited miles (S85), and Tesla suggests to charge it 80 percent or close to it, to preserve battery life,
This way, after 10 years or so, you might have to replace it, out of warranty.
However, by maximizing the charge to the fullest every time, chances are the battery might be needing a change sooner, like in 6 years, which would mean a free warranty replacement.
I think i might go this route. Warranty is warranty right?
