Now that I have 240, I am charging in a little over 3 hours in a normal night (from 30-40% SOC). If I plug in when I go to bed at 9:00pm, I will be completing my charge right around the time the rates drop at midnight!
[I'm only speaking theoretically, since I don't have a 2013.]
Yes, everything right as far as I can tell. There is no place to enter a start time. I am out of buttons to push or manuals to read. I think it has no start time, which is crazy since it has a "charge to" percentage. I mean, really, if you had to arbitrarily remove a function, couldn't it have been the end time? That way we could have started on the timer, and let the percent of charge terminate it.
So now we start a workaround. Something other than me getting up at midnight to plug it in. I could have an electrician wire in a 240 volt timer, although that would be $500 or so. That's a last resort. Other ideas?????????
