Re: Battery Management Strategy

We’ve had several tries now at using the 2018 charging timer without success. We’re going to get to a place where we drive down to about 20% and then charge to about 80%. We’re missing something about setting the timers so suggestions welcome:

Here's what we do:
Turn on each day of the week

Set timer one to on

Set the start time for 12 am and end time for 4 am.
(for now, we don’t need to talk about whether that’s the right length of time)

Press the charger door open button and plug in.

Each time we’ve tried, it begins to charge immediately and goes to 100%

So as far as you can tell, is that a process that should work?


Perhaps I’ve answered my question. Timer 2 was also set to on and timed from 12 am to 11 pm. I’ve set it to off. Next time we charge (about a week from now) we’ll see if we get the results we’re looking for. I wonder what logic is used by the LEAF when both timers are set to on.
