I always leave it plugged in when I'm not driving?
A: Because BatteryMD says so... and this is quite simply how the charging system was designed. Unlike the Rav4EV, the charging system can cycle on and off when needed to keep everything topped up. The lead acid batteries that most of us have in the Rangers like to be in the fully charged state as much as possible - and they like to be warm. Leaving the vehicle plugged in at all times achieves both of these goals and should make the battery pack last as long as possible.
