Do you lock the car with the remote ? This is necessary to get the systems into sleep mode after some time, for minimum power consumption.

Ahhhhhhhh, good point...no I don’t lock the car with the remote...could that be causing the 20 min charge time on a fully charged battery? Is there a way to verify this could be why I am seeing what I am seeing? Thanks

Possible, a lot depends on the used charger type, there are chargers that only charge and others that first partially discharge the battery and only than start the charging cyclus. What you can do is start by closing the car with the remote and depending on whether it is a daily driver or not, use the car every two or three days. You will than notice that the battery has enough power or not, i think you are needlessly concerned.

Thanks, I think u r correct In regards to being needlessly concerned...I did replace an 8 y.o. battery that probably actually needed to be replaced...I “think” the charging behaviour I’m seeing now is “probably” normal given different charger types...it’s not a daily driver but I think I can relax and carry my soon to arrive mobile jump starter battery pack, if for some reason I run into problems...Thanks again
