it will,, and yes, 50% is the minimum.cwerdna wrote: ↑Fri Sep 30, 2022 1:04 amYes, Niro EV has separate max charge level % settings for AC vs. DC charging. I've not tried setting it below the current SoC to see if it'll stop from that, but IIRC, you can't move them below 50%.GRA wrote: ↑Fri Sep 30, 2022 12:14 am I reduced the max. charge level setting in the Niro (and I think the EV6) when I wanted to stop the charge, or I could have changed the connector to never lock. On the Niro they're both on the EV menu selection on the touchscreen. Setting battery charge level is covered on page 1-11 of the owner's manual (you can set AC and DC charge levels separately), and charging connector lock mode is covered on pg. 1-17. Unfortunately that doesn't help the OP with his LEAF.

I have 2 different PDFs of the Niro EV manual. One appears to be a US one that I downloaded w/a prop 65 California cancer warning on page 2. The other doesn't but the discussion of the charging lock is the same.
You may well be right and I'm remembering the EV6 instead. I always just changed the max. charge level for both cars when I wanted to stop the charge and unlock the connector, except the one time I stopped the charge below 50% on the Niro at an EA FC. IIRR I did so using a button on the charger itself, and the connector unlocked itself. But again, none of this is relevant for the OP. Do we not have any current Gen 2 LEAF owners who can advise?
