    Yes Bluelink or manual , its nice to be able to the set limit but 5% increments would be better.

    Would be nice for sure if it was 5% intervals.. I wonder if this is something that Hyundai could change via software updates to our cars.

    Yes, I will go to 40-50% before boosting up to 80-90% . Depending on what I need for range. Today, I purposely started with a lower SOC, ran down to 34% to warm the battery up, charged to 85% on DCFC for a short road trip.

    For almost the entire last week, I charged every night from about 60 to 80 percent except for Friday. On Friday, I drove a total of 200 miles and was down to 17 percent when I got back home. Yesterday, I went on a longer trip too (trip to the beach - 120 mile round trip) but I did charge near the beach at a free DC fast charger.. Juice at 50 kw rate for free.. Can't beat that. That's the only FREE DC fast charger in the area.. Actually charged up to 85% as it's hard to turn away free juice.. Coming Thursday, I will be charging to 100% as I'm driving to Ft. Lauderdale. On my route, there are no DC fast chargers until Fort Lauderdale and it's about 210 miles from my house to the first fast charger in the Fort Lauderdale area.
