How much should I charge my vehicle?

To maximize your vehicle's battery health, most manufacturers suggest keeping the battery above 20% and to minimize fast charging as the battery nears full capacity (typically around 80%). Generally, if the battery is within a 20-80% range and you're confident you have enough of a charge to get home, then you may want to skip the charging session or opt to use an L2 charger. 

You can review your owner's manual for more specifics. If you have questions about how often and to what percentage to charge your vehicle, you should contact the manufacturer.

You can learn more about what to expect during a charging session with a few tips and links to more detailed resources from the EVgo Charging Crew in our article: Charging session expectations: Charging speed, session length, and more
