Probably. The longest life is charging from 20% to 80%, charging to 100% decreases life a little. Elon says it's no big deal to charge to 100% except that regen braking won't work until the charge drops substantially--like back below 90%--and regen braking adds substantially to how far you can go on a charge. Tesla warrants batteries to have more than 70% capacity after 8 years or 150K miles, but a person doing long commutes would find that limiting. If you have a 300-mile range 70 percent is 210. I've read that people doing long drives frequently generally pay to replace their battery at 80 to 85 percent. If you do the math, gasoline to do 100K miles at 20 mpg and $5 per gallon is about $25K, for 150K it's $37,500. Depending on your cost for electricity replacing a battery for $14K is still economically reasonable though people never look at TCO when they're forking out that kind of money.

Plug-in hybrids have relatively small batteries and tend to get charged to a higher percentage of maximum (higher cell voltage) so they don't last.

It's my wife's friends husband. He has a long commute every day. Maybe the charging cycles reduced the life? I read that Tesla batteries "should get" 300K to 500K miles. I don't think so... Another co-worker of my wife said he already replaced his Tesla battery. I don't know the mileage? I'll have her ask what the actual mileage was when these were replaced. My friend has a Jetta Hybid. It has two batteries. His batteries quit holding a charge (too low to work) at 55K. His warranty was to 50K. I just cost his $11K to replace both batteries??? I'm not so ready to jump on board just yet.

Not a bad idea if you used the right stuff. Some preservatives are oily which would screw up lamination. I tried doing a "WEST" thing, by painting on a thick coat of epoxy and sticking the part in a vacuum pot. Got lots of bubbles coming through the epoxy, When I let the air back in the top part had soaked up most of the epoxy but the sides and bottom, not so much.

Our friend who commutes in his Tesla had to replace his battery at 150K miles. It cost him $14K installed. Most of the manufacturers give you a 100K or 4 years warranty on the batteries for the P -hybrids and regular hybrids.

Tesla model S and X warranty 8 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first, with minimum 70% retention of Battery capacity over the warranty period. I don't quite understand why your friend needed to pay for a new battery. Diane's original Model S is now owned by a friend and he's approaching 200K miles and still has 86% capacity. YMMV.

_________________________

from their website:

The mast that started it all, the Project Cedrus “Classic” is still exceeding industry benchmarks for stiffness and strength, while remaining one of the lightest and only truly universal foil masts on the market. Whether you want a stiffer mast for your favorite kitefoil, or just want to try as many wings as possible as you learn to prone foil, The Classic will grow with you. Pair it with our lightweight plate, and you’ll have the lightest set up at the beach. Go with the Strong Mount if you’re a wing-foiler, and don’t ever worry about bending your aluminum mast or breaking your carbon mast again. The Classic is available in lengths as short as 55cm up to 95cm (assembled) for the perfect prone, wing, and kite configuration.
Project Cedrus is the only fully custom hydrofoil mast available in lengths down to the inch, and as a result, will have varying lead times. Depending on seasonality, material availability, natural disasters (yes, fires and freezes affect production), and demand, it may take 4-8 weeks to assemble your custom length mast. We are working hard to increase production throughput but again these are handmade in the USA to your specifications and take time to build. Specifying your custom build is also very time-consuming, as we work together to determine mounts, adapters and compatibility, and stiffness/strength requirements. For this reason, full payment for Project Cedrus is now due upfront.
