1. When I get home at 7pm, I plug in my 60.
2. I have the charge set to start at 3am.
3. Let's say the charge stops at 5am.
4. I unplug and leave at 8am.
From 7pm (when I plug in) to 3am (when the charge starts), is there any power being consumed? Assume nobody is in the car, it stays locked all night.
From 5am (when the charge is full) to 8am (when I leave for work), is there any power being consumed. Same assumption as above.
I'm asking these questions because my wife thinks there is some power being drawn while the car is plugged in, but not actually charging (whether before or after the charge). Unfortunately, I didn't have an answer for her.
