Today it is VERY Cold in Texas around 30 (almost 15 degrees colder than even Anchorage, AK). Also according to accuweather it's a record low cold. Also tonight it's set to hit 18 degrees F! This is my first EV and I am still getting used to what I am supposed to do. I believe the right thing to do for the battery pack and my comfort in cold would be as follows; #1. Set hill top reserve to on (unless going on a road trip the next day). #2. If one parks outside and it is forecast to below 30 degrees plug in and charge overnight at 12 amp setting (assume Your circuit can handle it mine can). #3. Know that I can sleep well that I can both keep the battery pack conditioned better and recoup some energy during the morning precondition (even a little bit because its only level 1). Is there anything faulty in my 3 step policy outlined above for cold weather home charges?
