Form time to time I need to go on shorter trips for my business and that sometimes require me to travel by air.
Luckily I can park the car at my company while away and the car can stay plugged in there while I am away. Mos times trips will be short 2-3 days, other might be upwards to 14 days. Can I safely leave Tesla plugged in while away?
So will this cause damage to batteries or unfair wear on the number of possible recharge cycles?
Specially during winter I believe leaving car plugged in is mandatory according to what I read here on the forum.
Is there anyway I can control the charging via some smart app? Like plug in the car before going to airport, then via mobile phone app making the car not charge before the day before I arrive?
I have still not decided to pay the down payment and sign the contract cause I feel there might still be things I need to get a better understanding of. If I order Tesla it will be my only vehicle so I must be sure it will work for my needs without putting strain on batteries etc.
