Does scheduled charging work for the "top-off" that regularly occurs?

    I know that the MS "tops-off" around every 24 hours if the SOC gets far enough below the target. Can anyone tell me whether or not the scheduled charging setting is actually taken into account when it does that? I am starting Time-Of-Use metering this week, so would like to know.

    Thanks,
    Ron

    My experience is that it does. I left the car for a week and it did one charge a day at the scheduled time.

    It does, I left mine for a week and tracked the draw on a kWh meter. Visible Tesla also sent me alerts daily when it went to charge up a bit.
