Especially when you c fully charged vehicle every morning.
Better for the vehicle
Rapid charging, though convenient, can have long term detrimental effects on your vehicle. Just like a smart phone battery, it is better for the vehicle to keep the battery near-full, rather than just topping it up from 5% to 10%, plugging it in wherever you stop.
A home EV charger prolongs your vehicles battery life by providing consistent charging, avoiding the increased temperatures which reduce your vehicle’s battery life.
