I have had the 50A OpenEVSE for just about a year, and just started to use the on board timers to great effect.
For a few months I used the Leaf timers, but those became harder to work with when I needed to charge during the day for some reason. I eventually just turned the timers in the car off.
I started playing around with the current options to reduce the amount of charge I was getting, and then finally decided to just use the OpenEVSE timers. I have them set to start at 4:30am - and shut off at 6:55am. This will charge my 2015 SV from close to 20% to 100%, and if I am around 10% or lower it will typically charge it back to around 85%. It seems like a good setting for our limited use. I am on PG&E E-6 TOU rate plan and have Solar Panels...so this guarantees that we are charging off peak.
I got tired of remembering to go out to the garage after 9PM or plug it in when I woke up in the morning - so I love the timer function - just wish I had used it sooner!!!
edit: start time is 4:30 AM - so 27.5A for 1:25mins for most of our charging
