Re: 2013 S - 80 or 100%?

I've got the charge timer set to finish, but not to start. The Leaf seems to do pretty well at figuring out when to start charging so that it'll be charged up on time.

But on another note, is it possible to insulate the battery during the winter in order to keep it warmer?

12 bars until 44,300 miles on June 2, 2017. :D
11 bars current. :)

It is possible to stop airflow below the vehicle with styrofoam blocks around the perimeter.
But actually no need to do that if you are not having problems with range.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW
