Tesla introduced a new 80 percent limit to the top state of charge (SOC) at busy supercharger stations in order to reduce wait times.

May 28, 2019—Tesla has introduced a new 80 percent limit to the top state of charge (SOC) at busy supercharger stations in order to reduce wait times, but the automaker now clarifies that there are more ways to override the new charge limitation, as reported by Electrek.

The automaker says that it will affect 17 percent of all its Supercharger stations in the U.S. The feature is rather controversial because, even though most people don’t need to charge to 100%, it can be a necessity in some occasions.

Tesla said owners can change the max charge to more than 80 percent via the charge screen or the mobile app. Owners would simply have to slide the charge limit line on the screen to the right:
