Has anyone else experienced your Smart ED not fully charging to 99%? Lately, in this high North Carolina heat, my car stops charging at 91 to 93%. Unplugging and plugging back in has no effect. Switching from Level 2 to Level 1 doesn't help either.

Very puzzled by this.

with the high heat probably better on the batteries to not go to 99%. I am in South Texas where its almost 100 everyday. I only charge to 80%. I have heard that help battery life but then what do I know.

Mine would stop around 94/95% sometimes, generally during the summer. I'm in NC, too, and it's been unusually warm for the time of year. If I ran it below 10% and charged it in the evening it usually would go back to 100%.

Same thing here in Phoenix heat 115 degrees.
I noticed lately that I have REgen first thing in the morning, so the charger must be stopping early due to high temp.
Maybe a safety thing to protect the battery?
