1. Read from LSpy your battery capacity at 100%
2. Let us know your EVSE volt and amp specs
Then we can tell you the battery % charging increase per time.
As an example,
My EVSE charges up the car 1% every two minutes (an L2 240 volt, 30 Amp device that sends ~ 6 kWh per hour to the battery)
If I return home at a SoC of 30% and want to leave the car at 80%, I set the timer to charge 100 minutes.
If you do not like arithmetic, then do this:
Note the starting and ending SoC after an hour charge.
The difference is the percent increase per hour.
NOTE that different EVSEs may have different charging rates, so the results may not be transferable.
Thanks I don't have LeafSpy (LSpy) yet. I guess it is just a Bluetooth on OBSII Dongle and a free App?
My Clipper Creek Charger is 20 AMP or 220 x 20 = 4.4 KWh (estimate). I have the 6.6 KWh charger.
I can see from my two charges charge time (typical will be 3:30 hours to 2: hours (or less).
