Yesterday, across Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and California reached highs, making even the normal of everyday activities for all but the most hardened of heat-loving

Like humans, electric car packs prefer moderate rather than extreme ones, but with the heat set to increase its intensity and widen northwestern states like Washington, Idaho and Montana, can you do to keep your car’s pack happy in unbearable

Avoid Extremes of Use

Just any other battery pack, current in and out of your car’s pack will warm it up. The the current passing through the pack — either in or out the quicker the pack warms up.

worth noting too that as the pack reaches 20 percent or less, its cell voltages to drop dramatically. Since power equals voltage current, the current drain on the pack will increase as the voltage drops to maintain the levels demanded by the car. will in turn heat car’s battery pack exactly what you want it’s already triple outside.

To keep your battery as healthy as possible and as cool as it’s best to avoid acceleration and running your car to a low state of charge.


As we’ve just explained, high currents through car’s battery pack cause it to heat up far more than passing low currents it.

Since the CHAdeMO quick and Tesla Supercharger stations on extremely high current to quickly replenish the battery on cars like the Nissan or Tesla Model S to 80 percent in under 30 minutes, think before using them the mercury is reaching for the sky.

The same is true for 100 percent or charges in hot weather. As a battery reaches a full state of and its internal resistance rises, it harder and harder to push into the battery. In turn, puts additional stress on the pack and increases the rate at it heats up.

Consequentially, if you know you need an 80 percent charge to your destination, setting car to stop charging at 80 percent put less strain on it and help it healthy in hot weather.

Where possible, in the shade out of direct sunlight, as should help your battery pack stay than it otherwise would. In you’ll find your car far pleasant to return to.

Keep Car Plugged in

While some cars the Nissan LEAF and Mitsubishi i on passive forced air cooling to them cool in hot weather, the Tesla Model S, Chevrolet and BMW ActiveE use sophisticated thermal systems with liquid

By closely monitoring the pack these fully-automated systems by pumping refrigerant around the pack to keep them at peak efficiency. If your car is not in, they will use some power to keep the pack If your car is plugged in, they generally run from mains

If your car uses an active management system, it’s a idea to keep it plugged in possible in hot weather, to maximize and keep the battery pack as as you can.
