**… you should avoid charging an electric car to 100%?
Lithium batteries stay in good condition for longer if charged to between 20% and 80% of their capacity. A fully-charged battery is not ideal. However, you are also not advised to drain your battery completely. If this should happen, ensure you recharge it as soon as possible. But don't worry, some buffer capacity is built into your battery. This varies between 5% and 30% of its total capacity.
**... with LeasePlan, your electricity bill will not increase in Flanders in 2022?
From 2022, the way you pay for your electricity will change in Flanders. Total consumption will no longer be the only aspect calculated, and peaks in consumption will also be tracked. So charging your electric car, turning on the heating, watching TV and cooking with electricity simultaneously will have an impact on your bill.
Fortunately, LeasePlan has anticipated this future change with its "Home Dynamic Load Balancer" charging solution. This smart charging point takes into account the household's overall consumption. For example, it operates at higher power when solar panels are still supplying energy, reduces its power during peaks in consumption, and then recharges at full capacity during the night, when other electrical appliances are switched off. The result is lower peak power, resulting in cheaper electricity bills. LeasePlan, in association with Blue Corner, is the only leasing company to offer this service in Belgium.
