Re: Limiting total charge % - hidden feature?

You do realize that even when physically connected, the car does disconnect the acv input once it thinks it's fully charged? It's not like most cell phones or computer batteries. IOW, the batteries are not always sitting with a charging voltage applied to them. I get that, but research strongly sug...

Re: Limiting total charge % - hidden feature?

What is the point of running the battery cooling for hours a day when you're not using it? How much energy does that use? Are you suggesting that this increases the battery's longevity? I also doubt that a closed garage can get to 100 degrees overnight, and perhaps not during the day either. Shade ...

Re: Limiting total charge % - hidden feature?

More investigation is required. My i3 is back to charging to 100%, despite the charge settings adjusted to the lowest possible for 120 and 240v. I am somewhat disappointed as I liked being able to keep the vehicle plugged in all night to allow the batteries to self-cool in my hot garage, while simul...

Does it charge to 100% if you set the higher charging rates?
Yes, when I change the settings back to 'Maximum', it will charge up to 100% like normal. The first time I noticed this, was after receiving a message on the Juicenet app saying 'Energy limit reached' or something along those lines.

Limiting total charge % - hidden feature?

I haven't seen this discussed before, so I thought that I would mention it. When I set both the 120v and 240v charging to their lowest setting, my i3 automatically stops charging at 85% or 87% capacity. Like others, I've been somewhat disappointed by the inability to avoid charging to a full 100%. H...
