Does anybody know if the MS...(and MX)has a deep discharge 12 volt battery?
I have a Lexus RX400h which was supplied with a conventional battery which went flat when left unused after 2 weeks in an airport car park.
Lexus replaced the battery after 12 months but the problem kept recurring, to the point that it went flat in a couple of days non usage due to the current drawn from the electronics which remain on at all times.
I solved the problem by buying a deep cycle leisure type battery from Optima and never had any more problems.
The car only needs a few amps to start the electronics as it has no starter motor, being a Hybrid.
I have told Lexus about this but they just ignore me and continue to fit cheap normal batteries.
There have been several people with the same problem that have replaced the supplied battery with a deep cycle one.
I only hope Tesla doesn't fit conventional high cranking amp batteries in my new MS when ever I get it or I am sure one day I will have problems.
I know the MS goes to sleep after a while, but why ask for trouble when it can be so easily avoided...
So my question is, what type of 12 volt battery is fitted to an MS? Is it deep cycle?
