Re: We Charge

My home tariff has just gone up to approx 20p/kWh at night on economy7, so locking in for 12 months @25p on subscription is looking a good option. Won't be long before it's cheaper to drive 10 miles to Cobham services to charge my car of an evening while I have a dirty burger...

Re: What charger for home use

At least OHME have added VW.id APIs meaning that it can check the car charge level and let you set a new target level by a certain time using less expensive rates ( such as economy7). The latest SW update caused problems though the required a hard reset. Still can't easily switch between two cars on...

Re: ID4 will not go online

Probably for a similar reason I needed to reboot my phone this morning when I had no bars. As new EV cars are effectively computers on a chassis, with complex software architectures, they need to build in simpler ways of doing a hard-reboot (power off and on). Maybe there's a market for someone to m...

So Kris (?) at Battery life has spent time at VW recently being informed of the upgrade path (from 2.1/2.3 >> garage for 2.4 & new components Q2 >> 3.0 OTA Q3/4). Three videos to watch: What to expect/ how to upgrade to 2.4: https://youtu.be/_KoJkj4Bbhk What to expect in 3.0: https://youtu.be/im...

Ohme now talks to VW.id through api

Got an email from Ohme today saying they're able to talk to the VW.id Ali This means that having to look at your charge % separately and then setting an amount in the Ohme app, the Ohme app can read your car's % and set a target %. It also offers a "preconditioning" option, which I assume ...

V3 coming Summer 2022?!

Time to move on from the v2.3 OTA debacle and look forward to the upcoming v3. Posting this now as Herbert Diess dropped a few hints this week as to what to expect. So far... - V2H (77kw only) - higher charging rate (DC) - hearing that the underlying SW architecture has had a refactoring. - what els...

Multiple WeCharge subscriptions debited in Feb22

I've just looked at my bank account and noticed that my WeCharge subscription (to get reduced fee at Ionity) was not only deducted on the 2nd Feb, but two more debits were taken on 8 Feb without notification. I've emailed asking for an explanation. Anyone else with a WeCharge sub noticed similar beh...

Re: Winter Driving

Also made the mistake last week of setting a scheduled pre-heat daily - even though I use the car occasionally at different times. Bye-bye 20%+.
