I have the tools and know how to discharge and charge independently from the car ... I can do so anytime I like , the whole pack , individual cells , etc ... Currently I only do so as a diagnostic / maintenance like activity ... 2 or 3 times a year.
<<As for the grid charger- Do you run a discharge on yours and how often do you run the charger? Thanks for all the info and help. Rich (northwestIL)
Normally I run a "discharge" on the way to work using MIMA-CL and then trickle charge the battery back up at night.
However, since this summer, my battery lost quite a bit of capacity from the very hot temps, and continuing to cycle the battery to/from work, and again, trickle charge at night.
I took the battery out, cycled all the sticks, rebuilt it by replacing one low capacity stick, put it back together, and now the battery is back to it's old capacity.
I have seen posts from people buying Mike's discharger, and it's probably a great product, but with MIMA and a typical trickle charger, one can cycle the battery and make use of the discharge energy in the car, instead of wasting it heating a lamp in the garage.
Peter lowered the OBDIIC&C 12V power usage with one of the software upgrades ... I do not recall which specific one off the top of my head.
Generally speaking you want the latest version of compatible software ... You do not need all versions ... AFAIK , just the latest version... If you have any doubts or issues the two best people to ask are Peter and Eli.
This is probably way out of date, but here is the info:

We are the only company out there repairing the IMA batteries.
Your car takes a TOTAL of 2.6 quarts of oil if the oil filter is completely drained (ie new) or 2.3 quarts without. I don't know how they managed to fit 3 quarts in there. Also, the car uses 0W20 oil, not 5W20.
