    Hi, I've just had some solar panels and battery fitted and no zappi..... yet. I was hoping to remote start and stop the MG4 charge using the app. When I do this the car charges at maximum current. If I sit in the car and choose a reduced current and start the charge from the car, it charges...

    Clocks go forward - check charging schedules

    I’m on Octopus Go for cheap electricity between 0030 and 0430. Octopus manages the change to and from BST automatically. So no need to do anything unless you use timers to switch on appliances during the cheap rate. I was surprised to see that my Easee One EV charger changed my charging period...

    Public Charging session ended - Autohold & Low-voltage Battery faults showing

    I decided to try a couple of public chargers this morning, the first being a fast charger where I used my type 2 cable.

    calculating charging rate

    I am sure I have read this on here but cant find it. How do I calculate the rate that my car is charging? I am sure it looks at the battery size and voltage but cant recall how to calculate. Mine is a pre facelift long range?
