We took delivery of our EQA on the 30th November 2021 in Melbourne Australia. As recommended, we restrict battery usage to 20-80% capacity. We have solar and a smart charger which allows us to restrict charging to only using solar up to a max 7.5Kw/hr. We can change it to rapid charge off the grid if required - but have used this only sparingly. In the 7 months we’ve had the car, we’ve done 5,500 km and charged only at home. However, increasingly I’m seeing recommendations not to keep it topped up the way we do, but rather let it get closer to 20% before recharging. Are we damaging the battery in so doing? Advice?
