In another thread, someone remarked that their dealer told them they should not leave the car plugged in for charging more than 2 or 3 days. Does anyone know if this is true?

I am about to leave on a business trip for 4 days and was planning to leave the car plugged in (110v) so that I'm sure its fully charged when I get back. When the car reached a full charge, I can audibly hear the car shut the process off and the charger changes to the same readings as when its unplugged. I've been in my garage a couple of times now as this has occurred. So, I can't imagine that this is a problem but I wanted to see what anyone knows.

I left mine plugged in for a week last vacation and no issues. Battery at 50 ready to rock and roll when I got back. I really missed my Karma

If you don't leave it plugged in you will not come back to a fully charged battery. I have observed 1-2 miles of drain per day on the battery meter if I let the car sit not plugged. Are others seeing the same thing?

I will check that for you at any given time we have any were from 6 to 8 Karmas on hand that are waiting for delivery . I will take a look at one and note the battery level and check it a few days later I will do this next week this is going to be a short week for me unless I do it on Thursday and check it again next Monday .

I have left mine for up to four days w/o plugging in and I was still at full charge when I took it out. I have not seen any drop in charge unless I'm opening and closing doors/trunk etc.

I've left my Karma in the garage for a week and returned to notice the battery range was the same as I had left it.

I will be back in town this weekend and will see how the battery has fared after 4.5 weeks of just sitting in the garage!

I might be losing charge because mine is plugged into a 220V charger with time of day programming. As a result, the car wakes up periodically, but cannot charge since it programmed to only charge between midnight and 7 am.
