Always keep your MS plugged in.
If I'm remembering correctly, the rest of that pamphlet includes a picture of the red HPWC. /sadface
Yes, it does. My new NEMA 14-50 feels like a HPWC, since I came from 120V at 12 amps!
If my MS is plugged in but not scheduled to charge until late at night, does the car still draw some power from the wall for systems maintenance?
That's what it says in the release notes of the latest software update (1.33.61) from last week.
My MS on .61 will draw power after it has done it's charging for the night. I have completed the charge at 9 pm, only to find my MS using shore power at 9 am. I have found the charge port to be green at 9 am. The ambient temperature is 75 degrees. I don't know why.
Don't tell anyone, but I plug in about once a week. I don't see anything magical about 24 hours.
I drive just 5 miles a day.
I suspect that TMC wants all owners to make a habit of plugging in their MS as a routine to avoid anyone forgetting to plug with the chance of bricking the main battery.
