Hi everyone - I took this graph via my home Sense monitor and thought I'd share. Stand-alone plug-in conditioning that isn't associated with a charge looks very similar. It reflects a quick 30 min charge due to me plugging in on a hot 95*F day.

Is that linear scale in the first pic during the 30A peak for charging? I'm surprised to see the conditioning portion uses 7-10 amps. I was expecting maybe 1-3 amps to condition based on no technical understanding of what battery conditioning is.

Yes it's linear and conditioning appears to peak around 20A @ 240V, leveling out at around 10A to your point. Which I guess shows that plugging in using the L1 charger into a regular household 15A circuit will have a much different conditioning cycle. At least I'm assuming it will condition using the L1 charger...haven't tested that personally.

The Sense product looks interesting. Thanks for sharing.
Yes it's very fun to play with but the AI isn't very good (so far) at detecting my household devices. I hear they're doing a software update soon to better detect EVSE devices which evidently is very hard for them for some reason.

Don't know if this useful or not but this is the power draw for conditioning on a 95 degree day.
It's very useful - thanks for sharing! Is that first one a charge + condition? Your garage must have been especially hot if it's charging every 1.5 hours. Do you mind sharing where you live?

Garages are for the upper class :) The car sits in a rock driveway and I live on the Illinois side of St. Louis. The car was completely charged at the point just a hot battery. I attached a full charge (hill top on) for reference. You can also look below the graph and see the charge history for the last week or so.
