What is the ideal SOC for gaps in use?..I gather not good to leave at 100%, or very low. Maybe aim to maintain 50% - 90% until just before a long journey or cluster of journeys?
Hi everyone, wondered if anyone (electrical engineers, electricians, pioneers...) knows the answer to my Ice Breaker question?

I've since read in the manual you shouldn't leave it below 80% for long periods. So: ~85% ±5% a sensible target that other people apply?

And how long actually is 'too long', to leave parked up at <80% or at 100%...?

If you leave it a long time, just leave it plugged in.....it will do it's thing when it needs to.

No problem with leaving it at 100%, because it's not charged fully even when it tells you it's at 100%, but don't leave it at low states of charge for long periods e.g. under 10%
