What do you do with your charging cord

I do all my charging in my garage at home, but feel like I am supposed to put the charging cord back in the case each time after use and put it back in my car. I just got the car and wonder how long before I just start leaving it in my garage. What do you do with your cord? Should I continue putting it back in the case and back in my car each day?

I leave my cable in the garage, but have considered getting a second to keep in the car. If I travel, I throw the cord in the car again, but I otherwise like to just pull into the garage and plug in. I also have a charging station available at work.

my cable has never seen the case since the first day. Why take it with you if you only charge at home?

I have a level 2 charger as well. The 110 stays in the car in the case. I have a connector for the plug and hook to loop the level 2 charger onto. I have a 40' cable, so definitely needed something to manage it.

Same here. I used the L1 cord for the first week or so while waiting for my L2 to arrive. Since then the L1 has remained in its case in the trunk. But while I was using it, it stayed in the garage. There was nowhere I would need to use it away from home.

I have the end draped over a standing fan by the plug. I lift it off the fan and drape it over the car to plug it in (plug is on the passenger side).

Plug it into an outlet close to your car. Then install a bike hook/hanger near by at a convenient height and wrap it around to keep the cord and plug from from getting underfoot.
