Hey guys, looking for some advice on charging strategy. I think I know the answer but hoping I'm missing something.

My apartment has paid level 2 charging where you pay per hour that you are parked at the charger (note...you pay whether your car is full, charging or not charging, as long as its plugged in you pay).

My work has free charging, yay!

I am driving LA-SF on Friday and plan to leave at 8am. So I was going to charge to 90% at work on Thursday. Is there anyway to get that last 10% in the morning on Friday without either A. waking up 3 hours before I leave or B. paying for the charger all night?

If the answer is no, I am thinking im better off just leaving at 90% and catching up via supercharger on the way rather than taking any of those options.

Just looking at the map, 90% to start, San Luis Obispo to charge, then maybe somewhere around San Fran to have some around town room. Seems to be a lot of options
