Hello all - I'm looking forward to picking up my black 85D tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday evening) and by Friday morning I'll be on a several hundred mile road trip. I was hoping I could get a couple bumps in the right direction. Thanks in advance for any time/thoughts. In the Car and Driver thread (about how they don't like the trip planner software) several posters comment that, if he'd (the reporter) charged differently he'd have had a much better time. My take away, although not clear, is that perhaps I should stop more often and take little charges rather than waiting to be down and go big ...? I think I intend to use EVTripPlanner instead of that software. Is there anything out there that is better? I've now seen several posts that I shouldn't charge all the way up. I was thinking that, at least for the first leg, coming out of my garage, I should let it charge all night to 100%. Is this not a good idea? Looking over the bootstrap video this morning I notice you can set the charge limit to, as low as, 50%. What is the benefit of this? Why would I want to do that? I will be grabbing a CHAdeMO adapter because I think I'll have more destination anxiety than range anxiety. I'm traveling from Phoenix AZ to Irvine CA, then up to Santa Monica then San Diego, then Phoenix. There are lots of different types of public chargers at my destination points. Anyone have advice about what type of payment account I should get, and which types of public stations are best? I've read that the "sweet spot" is 70 mph. Is there a predictable curve at how much I damage my range by going, say 80 or 85? I know that, over the next couple weeks probably all my questions would be answered, but I'm taking my wife and our friends on this trip and I want to do it as close to "the right way" that I can. Any thoughts at all, very appreciated.
