Re: 100% charge

Put car on charge overnight as I do every Wednesday evening, set to charge to 80% as normal, but woke this morning checked the app and the cars charged to 100% Don’t understand how that can be, I certainly didn’t change any settings in the car and the Zappi and octopus Intelligence can’t override t...

Re: 10,000 Miles with the Cupra Born

Thanks for your write up Jim jamming. I think if I had produced a write up after my 20 months of ownership it would be very similar. I would only add though that the Winter/Summer range is common to all EVs so not directly a critism of the Born. This is the price you pay for a warm cabin from a vehi...

Re: Intelligent Octopus and Cupra

Is Octopus controlling your charger? That is that there are no schedules present in the Charger App or the car itself? I charge via a PodPoint Solo. All scheduled charges are switched off, same in car. When I plug in Octopus produces a schedule in "Devices" in the Octopus App. Are you gett...

Re: Opinions on where the EV market is going?

I think it depends a little on your country, here in Australia the government (State & Federal) seem committed to propping up the EV market, but I wonder if that will change (like other positions the government has reversed recently). Here in Australia there are significant tax benefits in owni...

Re: Opinions on where the EV market is going?

I didn't know the Polestar was built in China. My old Company, Ford, are miles behind so wouldn't be surprised to see them sourcing builds there.
At the moment they plan to build in Romania.

I doubt I will, even a Tesla, but it will impact what we would prefer to buy in some way. Its how that has me guessing.

Opinions on where the EV market is going?

I'm looking around for a small EV for my Son as a second car for his Wife and this popped up on the leasing App I have. A car for not much more than you spend on a phone and coffees for the month??? The GWM ORA 3 is renamed from the funky cat. At £115/month on lease for 24 months may not be everyone...

Re: Intelligent Octopus schedule charging not working!!

Mine is working fine via PodPoint and Intelligent Octopus via the App ok. UniqueUser1 workaround looks to use the charger as a dumb charger and control the charge via the car SW. Any electricity you use between 1130 and 0530 will be at the cheaper rate. We are running all appliances in our laundry r...

Re: Best Winter Advice

Think we have debated this before. I find recirc just allows more and more moisture to sit in the air and the condensation is worse not better unless you also put AC (refrige) on to dry it out. The other thing I notice with mine is zero or no battery heating going on. ZeroC day last week 30 mile ru...
