Interesting - I can try this. But in general I want to start charging after midnight ...

Decided to change my timer to be based on start time only - bit worried that the extra bump an hour after the pack is supposedly fully charged, and then the bump a few hours later when pre-conditioning the passenger cabin, might be unnecessary stress on the pack.
