Gary, you're not recalibrating anything on the cmax turning on the AC while charging. Topher doesn't want to say anything to upset you...
Recalibration on the Escape Hybrids you talk about is something totally different. The Cmax is not the same car as the Escape Hybrid.
I'll call it supercharging like you, that makes more sense. And you just agreed that you get more range that way, basically because you charged the battery more, up to 10% more...
Bottom line is use the AC while plugged into a level 2 charger to increase the battery charge further before you go on a long EV trip. I will add to this to make sure you don't let your car sit after supercharging, should be driven right away so that the pack is not at peak voltage with danger of voltage to rise further due to heat.
I'm not sure what the last paragraph means, explain that more. Why is there no need to charge the battery from 90% to 100% if the outside air temp is below 80F?
