Quetions on charging control from the App

Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:56 pm

Hi All. We use the App all the time but only for turning on climate control and checking state of charge.

On the App there is a charging start button. When would I use this.

Is there a way to stop the charge? Right now once I hit my desired charge I walk outside and unplug it. Can I do this from the App?

Like you, I just use the EV Connect app to start/stop climate control. I just looked at all of the menu items available for my 2015--there is one to start charging, but I don't see one to stop charging. The only reason that I can think of to start charging remotely is if you have a timer set and plug the car in outside the allowable charging time window so the car is waiting to charge. In that case, I think you could send a charge start command to start charging immediately. Hopefully, someone will reply if my interpretation is not correct.

AFAIK that is the only use for that function. It's the Timer Override button in the app.

I don't have that capability with my S trim.
So I bought a Juicebox and use their app to set the percentage.

I mainly use the Climate On and Climate Timer functions of the App to adjust the temp inside the car before I go anywhere. I also use the Charging Start when I need to override the timer and charge it up to 100% for the extra range. I have the default charging mode set to 100%, but I use a daily timer to charge only to 80% (I have a 2013 model) to help prolong the life of the battery.

Good morning. We have a Juicebox. How do you sync it as far as percentage of charge.

After I park in the garage I look at How much is left in the battery and input the percentage in the juice box app. And set the max, to 80% for example
