How to Check Tesla Battery Health

Teslas are great because they use cutting-edge technology, are good for the earth, and cost less to run.

But sometimes you might think that taking care of your Tesla might cost a lot. Taking care of a Tesla’s battery is an important part of keeping it in good shape. That’s what we’ll talk about today.

Pros of Tesla Cars

Now, let’s look at the benefits of Tesla vehicles:

Lower Costs to Run: Electric cars like Tesla have fewer moving parts than regular cars, so they need less maintenance and cost less to run.

What it Does to the Environment: Taking good care of your Tesla batteries cleans up the environment and cuts down on waste.

New Ideas and Ease of Use: Tesla’s state-of-the-art technology, like energy control systems, makes driving more fun.

For the best use of your electric car, it is important to check and take care of the battery’s health as part of normal Tesla repair. You can make your Tesla last longer and still enjoy driving a new, eco-friendly car if you keep an eye on how well the battery is doing and charge and care for it the right way.

Finding Out About Battery Health

Knowing how well your Tesla’s battery works depends on how it is charged. Batteries lose power over time, meaning they can’t charge as well as they did once you got them. Eventually, this hurts your Tesla’s range and general performance. Not charging it enough, driving too far, or even the weather can be bad for the battery.

1. Fully Charge Your Tesla

The best way to tell if your Tesla’s battery is good is to look at the estimated range. Your Tesla works this out by seeing how charged the battery is at the moment and how much power it has used in the past. That being said, this number may not stay the same no matter how you drive, how much you carry, or even the weather. A steady and big drop in the predicted range could mean that the battery is broken.

2. Diagnose your Tesla

Tesla tells owners in great detail how much power their cars use. If you drive normally but use more electricity, it could mean that your battery isn’t as strong as it used to be, highlighting the importance of regular checks as part of Tesla maintenance routines. You can get a good idea of how well your battery is working and whether any changes should worry you after reading these reports.

3. Understand the Role of SoH

Battery health is complicated, but Tesla owners can get a good idea of their car’s state and what they might need to do to keep it in good shape by focusing on key metrics. The State of Health (SoH) is one of these metrics that stands out as being very important.

● What does State of Health (SoH) mean?

Battery State of Health (SoH) is a number that shows how much power the battery has now compared to how much power it had when it was first bought. When a battery is brand new, its SoH is 100%. However, this value goes down over time as the battery ages and is exposed to different natural factors.

● How can Tesla owners get information about SoH?

Through the tablet in the car and the Tesla mobile app, you can get through readings and battery health updates. These sites give you information about your battery’s performance, such as its expected range and energy use, which is a rough way of figuring out its SoH. Even though Tesla doesn’t show the SoH % directly in the user interface, changes in range and speed over time can help owners figure out how healthy their battery is.

● How to Read SoH Metrics

To understand your battery’s SoH, you need to do more than just watch it go down. It has to do with telling the difference between temporary capacity losses and those that are permanent. Losses can happen temporarily because of things in the environment, like very cold weather, and they might be able to be recovered when conditions get better. But permanent losses happen when the battery cells age, are charged and discharged many times, or just get worn out over time. If you notice that your Tesla’s range and energy economy are slowly going down, it could mean that SoH is going down.

4. Pay Attention to How Things are Charging

How and when you charge your Tesla can tell you a lot about the health of its battery:

● Slow Charging: If your Tesla charges more slowly than usual, it could be because the battery isn’t working right.

● Charge Retention: If a battery drops power quickly or shows different amounts of charge, it may be breaking down.

● Take a Look at Performance: Watch out for how well your Tesla works. If the power or movement stops, it could mean that the battery isn’t fully charged.

Keep in mind that battery degradation is inevitable, but regular care and upkeep can greatly lessen its effects. This will ensure that your Tesla stays a reliable and useful way to get around for many years to come.
