    I scheduled my Prius prime plus to start charging at 15 past midnight yesterday (this was my first time charging using this scheduling mechanism). Today in the morning when i checked it was zero percent charged. How to find out what went wrong? Today at work i was able to charge without any issues (with charge now mode). If it is schedule to charge at later time and power cable in place, will those 3 small blue lights on the dashboard blinks ? How do we know if it is all set to charge on the scheduled time.

    Right, my first charge didn't happen, so charge upon insertion has been the primary, nay only choice, If I lived in a spot that only had electricity certain hours I would aim for them, or if the conduction of electricy when done charging while still pluged in was more than casual I would charge just before use, or if the rate for electricty was astronomical during certain hours, but, Kiss (keep it simple stupid)

    I have to pay 0.13$ during night time (10pm to 8am) Vs 0.25$ during the day time.

    I found what the issues was. My clock was not set properly. It was AM vs PM issue. After the clock adjustment, It worked fine.
