So if I want to charge to some target not 100% then I’ll need to do a little mental math, plug it in, and then remember to walk out to my garage and unplug it at the right time.

Have I got that right?
That is one option. Another is simply determine a charging duration, add a buffer and set the charge timer. Currently I do what you suggested.

I start my work week out between 45-60% SOC. I get up in the morning, plug in on day 2. Unplug 75 mins later when I leave for work. On my day off, I get up and still plug in but unplug when I have determined I have had enough to get what I need done. Lately it hasn't been much but earlier in Summer, I was setting a timer to start anywhere from 1 to 4 am depending on my plans for that day.

FYI; I have enough every day to go to work and back twice. I have never had to do this but with this much available range, it would be foolish to not be prepared for the first time this comes up.

We’ve started changing our charging routine. Last night I unplugged after about four hours instead of letting it fill up. And we don’t let it discharge as low before adding some juice. Thanks everyone for the helpful info and suggestions.
