From what I can glean from the internet, Powerwalls have 2170 cells with nickel chemistry. For Tesla cars with 2170, best practice to minimize battery degradation is charge to something less than 90% and not deplete them to less than 20%. Does this relationship hold for powerwalls?

My understanding is that the chemistry for the Powerwalls is tweaked to accommodate nearly complete daily power cycles. But I don't have any details on that, and I'm also interested in an informed opinion. My Powerwalls were just installed this week, so I'm also interested. Bump.
