Along the lines of http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=13407" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=14824" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, please add these to the Carwings app:
- ability to stop charging remotely
- ability to change the 80/100% threshold remotely or better yet, provide 90% setting (http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=13407" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) or more settings than just 80/100%
For me, my case is my free charging at work. I now am thinking of charging after 4 pm or so, when the charging spots tend to be more opened up (i.e. people have gone home, moved their cars, etc.). At my work, there are at least 35 EVs/PHEVs but only 10 J1772 handles (for L2) + a few 120 volt outlets on the Chargepoint EVSEs.
If I set my car to 80% charge (long-life mode) and plug it in, it'll go to 80% then stop. At that point, if I want to go higher than 80% but not 100%, if I have go downstairs to the parking garage @ work (or outside) to turn on the car and change the setting to 100%. If I end up getting caught up in something at work that makes me stay longer (and can't get down there), my car gets to 100%...
I could leave the car set to charge to 100%, but then there's the above problem, hence the request for stopping charge remotely.
I don't want to muck w/a charging timer each time as the the end time will vary depending on my current SoC, when I started, etc. And, turning it on means I could accidentally leave it on when I don't want it. (I've been bitten by this a few times so my timers are almost never on.)
Nissan is well aware of requests for other max charging % values. It was requested verbally by someone (Jim Stack?) at the Phoenix Leaf meeting w/Andy Palmer and company...
