    The past two mornings (2/27 and 2/28), My P.Prime has started and completed its morning charge, early by about an hour. Have any of you seen that too?

    I was wondering if it started correcting for Daylight-Savings Time early or something...

    Looking at the charging calendar on the 11.6, the charging times don’t seem to have changed, and the little red-orange line showing the current time seems to be correct.

    This wouldn’t be a huge concern except that I have that charge’s starting time calibrated to carefully to give it no more than ~23 miles of charge — enough to get me to work (with a mile or two of margin), where I have quasi-free charging available.

    I've noticed both this and the opposite - I set the charge schedule to be done at 7:30 and when I went out at 7:40 it said there were still 10 minutes left to full charge. I put it down to differences in temperature affecting the speed of charging, how much the climate setting took out of the battery, or something like that.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    So, I have seen 10ish-minute differences in charge-completion times, but I can’t recall seeing it finish an hour or more early, let alone doing so two days in a row.

    Has anybody seen that sort of thing before, especially if recently?

    Yip, again this morning: Somewhere around an hour early.

    Actually today ours did the same - my wife had set it to complete charging at 9:15 (with climate prep on), when I looked at the status at 7:30 it said charging was already finished.

    Interesting: Almost 2 hours ahead of schedule... Curious!

    I went ahead and moved my event 50 minutes later; hopefully that will get me back to 23ish miles charged when I actually leave.
