Here's an article about extending the life of your battery. Looks like charging to between 65% - 75% is best for longevity.

jsimon7777: Thank you for the very helpful links - I will try what you said.
As to the reason I would like to charge less than 100% is to ensure that charging does not start before my off peak/TOU best start time. I would rather restrict charging to my cheapest electricity hours and just take what range that gave me. I would override if I needed full range. Given the car range (don't need 100% range every day), I would prefer to think in terms of charging hours/times rather than charging to 100% every time giving me range I might not need.

That article seems odd. First, for storage, they are shipped at roughly 35% for most Li batteries.
Then 75-65% charge window x 12,000 cycles for our cars is 108,000 kWh x 2.5 mi/kwh = 270,000 miles.
For 100-25% charge window x 2,010 is 135,675 kWh x 2.5 mi/kWh = 339,187 miles.
For 75-25% it's 798,750 miles?

Somebody check my math, I'm assuming 90 kWh battery size.

NOTE: EVs with regen cycle more than those number. Miles are just comparisons. The C rates of charging, discharging, and regeneration are a major factor as well. Heavy foot, lots of regen, shorter battery life. But that's no different than an ICE car. Lots of WOT, lots of high RPM decel, reduces engine life dramatically.

Your math is spot on, McRat. Interesting too that 12,000 cycles when charging every other day gives a battery life of 65 years. By then I can afford something new 😄.

Versatile Charging

When I get my I-pace, I think for me the best "mobile" versatile charging option for the I-pace maybe EVSAdapters.com.

This adapter in conjunction with various plug adapters and possibly the unlikely need for me of the Tesla Tap.

Still on the fence about going with ChargePoint or JuiceBox for dedicated home charger.

I tend to charge about twice a week, and from around 40-50% to 100%. By that schedule and for 2800 cycles the battery will last me around 30 years. I think that'll do!

Will "Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle" work with the TeslaTap and Ipace and do the same job as the "Tesla Mobile Connector Bundle" that was originally specced here?

Yes, but the Gen 2 only comes with a NEMA 5-15 adapter, so you will need to purchase the appropriate 240v adapter to get level 2 charging speed from it. They’re $35 each, also sold on Tesla.com. The Gen 2 is 32A vs 40A of the Gen 1. FWIW, the picture shown in the original post is the Gen 2 adapter.
