I accidentally charged to 95%. Is it bad if I leave it at that stage all night and day?

I was messing around with the little slider earlier and accidentally left it at 95%. It’s currently charged to 95% and has been there for a few hours. I have since lowered it back down to what it usually is.

Do I need to go drive the car to discharge it? Will leaving it at 95% overnight and tomorrow cause issues?

Ok thanks everyone! I was running the ac trying to lower it from bed and realize it was going to take hours to impact the SOC doing it that way.

Absolutely nothing to worry about. Sure, long-term you want to only charge to 70-80% most of the time to maximum battery life, but the odd charge even to 100% is just fine .. the car wont explode.

I charge to 100% 3-4 times a week. No issue at all.
