Besides the preheat/precool feature, the "Charge and Depart" feature is supposed delay charging so it is just charged at the selected "departure" time.

But for some reason, this feature does not work in US/Canada Smart ED's. Only the preheat/precool feature works. Someone forgot to tell the writers of the US/Canada English owners manual about this.

The only way is to set up a timer at the 120/240 volt end like Htiek Jenkins wrote. My "Open EVSE" Level 2 (240 volt) charging station has a charge timer feature.
