I heard a rumour that the recent upgrade from 12 to 13.2 was not really a battery hardware change. They just altered the software to allow you to use a bit more.

You heard a rumour, or you're starting a rumour? :D

and then you enter the age old conundrum
Bigger battery for more range = more weight = less range= need more battery =more weight and around and around you go
I'm not buying another car until they go nuclear !

But doubling the battery capacity (like Renault did for the ZOE) ups the weight by less than 10%. So although you don't quite get double the range, it's pretty close

Well i said rumour, because it was told to me by my Mitsubishi salesman... Who is not the most technologically capable person I've ever met.

It might be true. It might be false. I was hoping someone had more than just anecdotal statements.

Would that be the same salesman who told me that I could charge the battery in my key fob by putting it in the slot? :roll: :lol: ;) I really think that most of them don't have a clue...

Maybe this will clear any misunderstanding

Question though is 13.8 kWh compatible without any CAN tweaks?

It would be the same salesman that told me the Phone app would work while my train was 10 or 15 minutes from my station where my car was parked. Meanwhile, it won't work from my kitchen to my garage 20 feet away.
