How is Rested Experience calculated?

As the title suggests...

I would like to know how rested experience is calculated?
What is the cap / maximum?
Is there a higher benefit to being in a cantina versus on your ship?

Thanks.

I know the cap is one level above your current level. So, for example, if you needed 100,000xp (total, not remaining) to reach your next level, you could bank 100,000xp rested.

There is no difference between resting on your ship or in a cantina. You accrue rested bonus at the same rate in both places. You can also accrue rested bonus outside of those areas, but at a significantly slower rate.

I've seen numbers quoted as 10% of your current required experience to level. Rested caps at 100% of the experience required to level at your current level. As long as you are in a resting area (Cantina, Fleet, or ship) you gain rested experience; none gives a bonus over the other.

What is the accumulation rate? Anyone?

Like if I start at 0% rested when can I expect to hit the cap. 24 hours?

10 days, I believe.

I found a website that calculates how long it will take until you are fully rested.

http://swtorutils.com

It uses a default value of 10 generated rested xp per minute. It seems to be correct when you look at the results.

According to that, it's going to take 20 days to accumulate 1 full level worth of rested exp. I don't see that happening ever.

I have nothing scientific to measure this but I stopped playing my Jedi Sage Healer for around 4 days or so and when I logged back on she had around 75% banked to the next level. She was level 26 at the time.

I don't think the cap of "till next level" is correct. I played my maurader for the first time in two weeks yesterday and leveled twice off rested xp. It may be different because I was below 20 but I am absolutely certain I had a green bar for 2 full levels. I had logged her off right after hitting level 12 and still had a third of a bar of green available after hitting 14.
