Charging while away on vacation

Charging while away on vacation

Any suggestions for how to leave my Model 3 on charge while I'm (sadly) away from it for 3 weeks?
1. Leave on no charge (probably charge to 80% before).
2. Keep on charge at 120V.
3. Keep on charge at 240V.
4. Other?

Keep it plugged in. Type of plug doesn't matter.

First off read the manual:

Model 3 has one of the most sophisticatedbattery systems in the world. The most important way to preserve the Battery is to LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE PLUGGED IN when you are not using it. This is particularly important if you are not planning to drive Model 3 for several weeks. When plugged in, Model 3 wakes up when needed to automatically maintain a charge level that maximizes the lifetime of the Battery.Note: When left idle and unplugged, your vehicle periodically uses energy from theBattery for system tests and recharging the12V battery when necessary.

Went to France in January, 2 weeks and left plugged in.
