Don't use it unless it is close to zero. If you do you may get a cel.

It's okay to use above 0, I do it all the time. You just need to make sure it is plugged in at least 4 hours. If you don't plug it in long enough, you will get a CEL.

It's because you have it plugged in for at least 4 hours. ;)

Try plugging it in for only an hour before you go to work, if you want a CEL, that is. :D
