Question Temporary Storage

We are going to be out of town for ten days with our 2019 I Pace in our garage. We will charge the car before we go. Should we leave it on our L2 charger in the garage or disconnect? Concern is the amount of energy the car uses while sitting unused versus the capacity of the 12V battery. We are assuming the 12V will stay charged if the car is left connected. Any downside to leaving the car connected?

My car sat outside unplugged, in the middle of winter for nearly 3 weeks without any issues or loss of charge. I can’t think of any benefit to leaving it plugged in

First, make sure you've gotten software updates so the old battery drain is gone.
Second, just in case, pop the frunk before you go, assuming the car is left outside.
Third, leave it unplugged to save power from the wall charger.

I would run it down to about half charge and just let it sit.

Agree, from what I've read, batteries do best between 20% and 80% and should not be left at 100% for extended periods

Thank you all. Will leave it in the garage at about 60% charge and not plugged in.

Jag manual says "30%-60%, aim for 37%".

I think that is intended for long term non-use. Parking the car for 10 days should not be considered ‘storage’

We were just out of the country for 9 days. Parked unplugged in garage, 96% charge when left, 95% when returned.

I've had my car parked for up to 14 days while traveling. No decline of battery for traction battery and the 12V battery responded just fine. I don't think there is a downside to keeping it connected, but I doubt you'll need to keep it connected. Most folks who have traveled for more than a week have had no problems.
