Re: Switching electricity & gas supplier?

Octopus do not lock you into their fixed rate EV tariffs but if you leave one you’re not allowed to go back on it for a month. In theory you could switch between GO and Intelligent if you have the right equipment. If you have a SMET2 meter and 50% or more of your electricity use is for the car then ...

Re: So what range are you Guy's currently getting at 80%

I’m getting about 160 miles and it’s saying about 3.4 miles/kWh but that’s not true (it’s less). I’m set at 20c, aircon on and I’m using timed cabin preheating twice a day hence the nonsense miles per kWh.

Re: Full range

Thanks for the feedback 😀 What's your opinion on 100% charge vs the 80% the car tells you..believe its saves the battery life, but does it really No problem and welcome to the forum by the way. I tend to follow 80 - 20 in summer and didn’t plan to bother with 80 - 40 in the winter but have been sin...

Re: Full range

Hi, new to the forum and new to electric cars I had my born v3 58kw for about two weeks now and completely love it. Today was the first time it was charged to 100% and was a bit disapoint with the range displayed 165 miles on all the reviews, which states about 226 miles. It is in comfort mode. Is ...

Re: Cold weather=not full power?

Ok, so 1°C today and I notice the little blue bar indicating power doesn’t go all the way… Suspect this is the battery being cold, and not being able to deliver full power to the motor?5B8AD463-4FA0-48C4-BE2B-C57CAA504E97.jpeg I had that a few of times on my ID3. I think it’s when the battery heate...

Re: Finally no longer un_born!

Looks great, enjoy! I’ve been driving electric since March. Had an ID3 but switched to the Born because I much prefer the interior. Found the switch really easy from a driving point of view. I drove a petrol car again for the first time since a few weeks back. It was new with about 200 miles on the ...

Re: Ambient lighting problems

Mine seems to remember if I use the person / custom setting mode but forgets other settings sometimes and goes back to custom.

Eventually it remembered the drive profile one I wanted and I think that was when I set timed climate from the app (god knows why though).

Re: What EV charger

What are these "nasty things with the signalling"? I've just started using the aforementioned workaround after my Born started charging at 3.7A in the Octopus Go window about 7 weeks ago. Been a few months since I last spoke to them, but my understanding is that they are forcing the car t...

Re: What EV charger

Thanks for the insight into the issues with the Ohme Pro charging at slower rates. Is this still an issue or has a fix been put in place. My Born should be arriving in 2-3 weeks and I really need to get a charger sorted. I am wondering whether I take the gamble on the Ohme or i go with a safe bet l...

Re: What EV charger

Just a note on the Ohme Pro - it still has a known issue with both the ID.3 and the Born where, depending on configuration, it can cause the car to drop to trickle charging. The specific case is where you have the charger managing the schedule (in my case 2am - 6am) rather than the car, so when the...
