I’m in Tesla’s camp in terms of the “A plugged-in EV is a happy EV”. When I park in the garage, no matter what the current SOC, the truck gets plugged in & is set to charge to 70%.
That’s fine, bur given the amount of vampire drain right now, at what depleted SOC will the truck start charging again to top off back to 70%? Is it even “smart” enough to know it’s still connected to shore power and can supp from the grid when necessary to get back to the target SOC?

Yes, it will toggle on/off to maintain the 70% charge. I think it toggles on a bit too frequently. I'd prefer if it would allow itself to drop down a couple percent before it kicks on.... But it will keep itself at 70%.

Yes, you’re right. I was getting ready to drive off in the Boxster this afternoon, and it kicked on just before I left. I checked the app and it was only going to charge for about 3 minutes. Time to open a feature request ticket.
