New-ish Ecosport Karma, running 6.15-era software. Drove until the battery was at 0 miles (about 15% of the raw battery's capacity left, I assume) and the ICE was running in Stealth mode, so I consider the battery to have been "empty" for driving purposes at this point.

Charged at 220 V from empty to full. The battery accepted 19.954 kWh over 5:50:02 (just under 6 hours).

Since our batteries are rated at 23 kWh (though this figure differs slightly depending on the source), this means 86.7% of the battery was used and recharged, which sounds just about perfect given that the battery is supposed to discharge down to 15%.

How does your battery's charge characteristics compare? I think useful information about the health of a battery can probably be derived from these figures, especially how much charge it accepts from "empty".

That is a smart way to check your battery periodically. :thumbup:
