  • Is it bad to leave your electric car plugged in?

Once the systems in a typical EV detect that the battery is nearing a full charge, they should automatically slow down the charging process. The vehicle will use a technique called “trickle charging” to intelligently maintain a full charge in the battery without overdoing it. Onboard systems then dynamically monitor and allocate the charge as it’s needed.
