Charging to 80% to extend battery life

It has been recommended that we charge our EV to 80%. Is this wise and how can I set this in the app?

Like to add an opinion. As far as I know, a common view is that it takes a lot less energy to add each kW in the battery up to those last 10-20 percent. If soo that would give you a lower energy consumption if you could limit at a given percentage.

This is only for fast charging, not regular charging you do at home where you can charge up to 100% without any risk of degrading the battery.

Hi Ted, so why can't I change my charge level from 80% to 100% in my scheduled charge?
