Model S #5253 - Black 85kWh
My only wish for improved charging software is to be able to quickly check the car's current charge status on a website from my phone.
I don't know much about the Roadster yet, but I was wondering, the fact it aggressively cools the battery when you plug it in I assume is because it uses the information that you've actually plugged it in to know its going to charge and be sat still. I dont fully understand what temperature things need to be for charging versus driving etc.
Would it not be desirable if say, about 5 minutes before you get home (if you're not driving hard), you could tell it you were *going* to charge very shortly. The earlier it gets that information the more efficiently it should be able to act. It could then take that as permission to expend battery energy to start the cooling process (at least partially) before you get home? Where I live, the last couple of miles are always very slow through town and the car is cooling off a bit anyway?
