    I park in my driveway and charge to 80%. Overnight it’s in the mid to low 60s. When I leave in the morning I always have a few dashes under the PRND energy use bar. Today it took a good 20 minutes of driving to go away. I had finished an hours worth of charging just before I left. Is there anything I can do to have it working when I leave. What about winter when it gets way colder?

    Maybe charge to 70% instead of 80%?

    Maybe use scheduled charging to finish charging close to your departure time so the battery is warm yet?

    I could try 70% I guess. It had been charging for an hour when I left.

    Your battery cannot be any cooler than low 60sF, so I agree that something is off. Often these gremlins are poor connections, but I do not know where to look

    Any idea how long it needs to charge for the battery to warm up sufficiently?
