I wonder how much difference it really makes as well...

 

But one point I think you're missing is that plugging in immediately after would actually be a GOOD thing as it will run the battery fan and help keep it cooler.  But yes it may very well be better to have value charging set so that it doesn't do full power charging until later.

2013 Ford Cmax with slowly degrading battery.

 

3.8 kWh (14.7 EV miles) on Feb 19

4.0 kWh (14.7 EV miles) on Feb 21

 

I am going to log the numbers as a go for a couple of months to provide to Ford. The system I use is to charge to full capacity, drive in EV now for 20 mile commute then log into myfordmobile.com -> "My Driving" ->  "Trip & Charge Log" and screenshot the values. We'll see how this goes. I am sure Ford will tell me to buzz off.

I opened the warranty booklet somewhat recently because I am hearing a noise that I am worried could be the transmission, and was wondering the duration of the transmission warranty.  In the process I found the booklet clearly states that battery degradation is considered normal and is not covered....

Transmission in most cases should fall under the hybrid warranty which for you in CA is 10yr/150k mi.
