..... because we have 115 days in the summer. Thanks
You should keep it plugged in as much as possible in that kind of heat.
The TMS is effective but it only runs when plugged in or when the car is powered up.
If the car sits all day unplugged while you are at work, for example, you can see how much the TMS / (Battery Conditioning) is running on the Energy Usage page during your drive home.
It displays in %, but you can see how long the 'BC' number increases during your drive home.
When the % number stops increasing, that's how long it took to get the pack cooled down to a 'happy temp'.
I suppose you could take it easy driving while it is trying to cool the car.
Also, a 'Preconditioning' with the app or the key fob will cool the cabin and the pack before you start asking the pack for driving power.
