Has any one herd what the degradation rate on the 2170 cell is as opposed to the current 18650? Ive read that you can figure on about 3% a year with the 18650 pac but that its not linear and that it drops off slower over time. I know that the 2170 cell is new and that the power density is higher, but have they slowed the degradation rate of the new cell? I ask this because it will influence me as to witch pack to op for when ordering my model 3. I don't want to be looking at changing the pack if after five years the range of the pack is starting to get close to my lower distance minimal.
