I’ve been in Europe for more than 3 weeks, and everyday I keep setting the charging at 50% in the app (on the green bar), only to find out the following day that the max charge has been reverted to 70%. So everyday it keeps charging 2 to 3% to compensate for the phantom drain, and won’t let me lower the current charge to 50%.
Any tips other than setting the charging in the car itself which is impossible since I’m not there?

Turn off Scheduled Charging in the App. Let car sit with no charging. If Sentry and Cabin Overheat are off, phantom drain should drop to .5% a day or less. Eventually it will drop below 50% and you can reset to 50%.

Thanks for the tip and I’ve been doing this everyday, but the app keeps reverting to scheduled charging on it’s own.

Basically, I have a few recommendations.
  • Leave the car alone, don't keep opening the app
  • The battery sitting at 70% is perfectly okay.
  • Enjoy your vacation, stop worrying about the car
You’re right and I’m not worrying, but I was just curious and wanted to know if anyone else had experienced the same issue.
