It will initially, but my experience is that the power consumption drops as it warms so the charger can start to keep up. If you can leave it for 20 minutes afterwards, you should get a warm car and a full battery. But that's only in Yorkshire's relatively mild climate, so I've no idea what leaving it for a while in -15C would do to the cabin temperature. :shock:

I've noticed that with the charge timer activated, the pre-heating drains the battery without activating the charger.
Something to take into account. Currently I'm manually starting the pre-heat from the app each morning and stop the charge timer with the key fob.

Having to connect the Mitsubishi WiFi from the window next to the driveway (otherwise there is no connection at all :roll: ) and manually turn off the charge timer honoustly feels like a bit of a workaround. It's worth it though, for starting off in a warm car. But can't help feeling this could have been a bit more sophisticated in a €48k car.

Isn’t it just doing what you’ve told it? If the charge timer is set and the heater is switched on outside that set time it won’t charge? Or have I missed something?

Is there a reason that you have set the charge timer? Otherwise just switch it off. In that case the car will replenish the battery after pre-heating.
