So far each leaf battery is better than the last.
The original 2011 and 2012 battery sucked.
The 2016 30kwh appears to be the best.
The newer 40kwh battery is still too new to know how it stacks up.
The only thing that may be bad about the 40kwh battery is Nissan put too many kwh in too small a box with no active cooling. But if it doesn't get real hot there it shouldn't be a problem.
