Battery pre conditioning

Hi all
Can you please explain what the battery pre conditioning is i have tried to search the forum but cant find anything.

Is it only if you go to a supercharger station or do you have to do it every time you charge it regardless of how or where you charge it.

Also is it easy to put it in pre conditioning mode and how do you do it.

Thanks again

I'm pretty sure that if you select a non-tesla rapid charger as a destination then the car will start preconditioning the battery ready to accept the charge if it is given enough notice.
This was indeed a feature added some updates ago, but I'm not sure the UK has any rapid chargers added to this list. My guess is, if you can see the charger naxt to the superchargers when you filter the chargers in the map view by 3 lightning bolts, it will work.

Another way to warm up the battery is to preheat the car without anyone inside before departure. Not only it warms the cabin but also stalls the motor(s) and uses that heat to warm up the battery.
