The start timer approach doesn't even work if you have irregular departure times, as I do. Luckily I was aware of the limitations when purchasing an EVSE and bought one that can add a fixed number of kWh, or a fixed time. It's still stupid to have to input it each time, but it's better than nothing.
Exactly. I use my car for individual driving pattern. If I did the same trip for the whole year I would use public transportation system or something.
I depart randomly. I arrive randomly. I want to leave my car, plug it in within 6 seconds and that's all. No more than 10 seconds for
stupid things. I want to live. I don't want to manage small things for no reason.
If I was stuck in this 100% problem I would definitely build Arduino or just relay based system that cuts pilot signal when pack voltage goes
up to 393V.
