Re: Twizy Charging Question - Fan over run.
I presume it's because all batteries heat up when being charged (work is being done, in storing the energy, and this is lost as heat), and although it is 'wasting' electricity (or capacity), this has probably been 'designed-in' from a product liability issue (better to lose 5-10% from the range, rather than turn the Twizy into a BBQ).
There will be some form of temperature sensor which will determine if/when the fan is needed, I'm sure.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
