MtnViewMark, thanks for posting. Sounds like another gadget not completely thought-through. Never want to turn something on only to have it turn off soon thereafter.
Since the iMiEV (can't bring myself to calling it the "i") 120v EVSE limits the current to only 8A, I would imagine that permanently mounting a $5 lamp timer on your 120vac wall socket would do the trick. Simply set its on/off cycle for your desired time of use. Or is there something else you need to do after the unit is plugged in?
More significantly, when the 240vac EVSE gets installed, it may be a good idea to have it fed through, for example, an Intermatic timer commonly used for water heaters and swimming pool pumps. You could install a 7-day timer to take into account the different weekend time-of-use.
Since I'm less worried about TOU but want to never fully charge (I live up a 600' hill and would thus start off every trip by regenning), I plan on using a countdown timer to always shut off the charger input power before she's 'full'. I do that presently with all my EVs (I have five) as a safety backup, anyway.
Nice to know ahead of time so we can plan for it.
