      I don’t think you can stop it from starting to charge. At least, not without an alternative app connected to your Tesla account. A lot of Tesla owners don’t want to connect their Tesla account to an app that changes the behavior of their car, but if you do you can try an app like Jedlix:

      What you can do, without a third party app, is change how far the car will charge. So you can, but maybe you already know, change the max percentage of the charge. Simply tap the battery icon and tap “change limit”.
