Post subject:  Charging on Hot days

A question for owners that live in places warmer than generally the UK is

The last few days has been above normal for the UK with Air temps 25C to 30 C. When getting home and plugging in, the car fires up all its cooling fans for the 90 mins or so of charging (I have the 7.2 kW On-board Charger (Option KB2) and plug into a EVSE which delivers the full 7.2kw at 30A at 220Vac)

I have been leaving the garage doors open and also opening the bonnet (hood) to aid cooling while it charges

Do other folk assist the cooling this way of just leave it to do its thing :?:

Same thing here during the heat of the day the fan runs continuously. I generally charge mine in the evening.

Stay Safe - Mike
