How are you guys setting the car not to charge over 85%? I can't seem to find that functionality in the Porsche Connect App. I only see a "minimum charge".

it is confusing the way they've worded it, the minimum charge is the maximum charge level the car will get to.
I have two profiles set up, "normal" will charge the car to 80%, the recommended level for daily usage and "trip" profile which will allow the car to charge to 100% for long trips. I know the trip profile is redundant with direct charging but I prefer it that way.

You can set the minimum charge to the desired target (if no Departure Timers are active), or you need to create a Departure Timer and select the desired charging target within that Timer's settings.

This is my most frustrating part of the charging experience with Porsche. They over complicated the simple act of charging to a desired target. This is where they should have copied Tesla's approach.

This is a good solution, I would also add a third one I set to 40%. When I am not going to be using the car for a couple of days I'll use this one to keep a minimum "storage" level charge (also for longer storage).

Hi Alex,

Congrats on the new Mamba Turbo, looks beautiful in the pic in the other thread. Regarding charging profiles, I followed this video, which he explained perfectly.


Happy motoring!
