The end-timer overestimates how long it takes to charge the car (on most LEAFs reported here) so setting it for 40 minutes after you plan to leave may not be enough. And the charge rate tapers as it nears "100%". You will likely have to experiment with the times you choose and bear in mind that it will vary somewhat even when you do settle on a time. Also, if you ever use preheating my experience is that end-time-only charging tends to finish even earlier than usual.achewt wrote:...So, for my regular morning commute, I will 'trick' the system by setting the charge timer for 0:40 after I actually plan to leave - my home EVSE allows my car to charge at ~30%/hr, so I should be right around 80% most mornings when I leave.
Still won't solve my initial situation where I go to the mountain town in the afternoon and have varied departure times that I don't know in advance... but less math involved now if I do try to guess. That's something anyways.
As always, YMMV.
