I think that this only further proves my point. It is ridiculous to have to play a guessing game in order to regain functionality that was included in the first model of the Leaf.
Nissan: please consider implementing one of the solutions I suggested in my original post.
Bonus points for implementing an option where you input the Start Time and the desired % at which you wish charging to end (in this fashion my car would start charging at 3am, long after I've finished driving, and will stop at 70 or 90% or whatever % I set by the time I want to drive the car at 5:50am - 6:20am. [This assumes of course that I've left adequate time between the Start time and % I desire to be charged.]).
I've actually gotten to the point where I just go plug it in the moment I wake up and then take my shower, eat breakfast, etc... when I'm ready to leave, I've gotten the extra % I need. The tough part is when my wife drives it to work (free chargers at Apple) and I tell her to not charge to 100% and let it sit. The charge timer is cumbersome on the S model, so I tell her to disable the timer, look at her % charge, figure 35% per hour on the L2 and set a timer on her phone to go out and unplug. She always forgets though and the car sits at 100%. I normally wouldn't care so much, but we bought, not leased, so its our battery in the end.
