UMC Charging Restart


Sep 21, 2015
Austin, TX
I'm sure some of you already know this, but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere on this forum or in any materials. If, after charging is complete (and still plugged in) and you want to restart charging, just press the button on the charging handle of the UMC once and charging will resume. I found this convenient after losing some miles due to vampire drain and wanted to top it off to 90% again.

Note, I did NOT have my key fob with me when pressing the button FWIW.
