    Will my car charge tonight?

    That’s what I’ve done tonight so let’s see what happens. This said though why did it do what it did? If you set a charging preference time for 1230-0430 why did it avoid this time slot? Doesn’t make any sense!

    Will my car charge tonight?

    So, i thought I’d have another go at using the PCM to control the charge based on everything I’ve read. I now think my car is officially taking the p&ss out of me, or the software is corrupt. Can anyone explain this? Charge at 63%. Combo of timer/profile covering the following. Min charge set...

    Charging to 85% Regularly between 00:30 & 04:30

    Hi, this the problem I’ve had, as it WILL step out of the boundaries set. If it doesn’t think it will reach the required soc it starts charging early and ignores the times set in the profile. Hence, I’ve given up and am just using the podpoint timer. It all worked fine just using a profile...

    Charging to 85% Regularly between 00:30 & 04:30

    Is this working for you and only charging between your chosen hours? I’ve given up trying to get the car set up to charge between 1230-0430 now as it kept ignoring the set times. I’m using the podpoint timer but the app integration is rubbish.

    CHALK Taycan Club

    Not been washed for 2 weeks so crayon is hiding the dirt well. No brake dust from the PSCBs helps.

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Yes, it has a panel, and looks expensive! From memory it was forced option circa £800. The reason I didn’t use it though as when researching I would of had to had a commando 32a socket installed to achieve 7kw on single phase. I didn’t fit the 32a socket as after the gif grant the podpoint...

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Hi, thanks for posting, and just re watched. Pretty sure I watched this vid pre delivery and very informative at the time., Only issue is he states you can just set a profile, as indeed I had been for 4 months but now post software update this information is incorrect as you can’t, so if my car...

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Cheers. Well rather annoyingly moving to an 0430 departure made no difference. About to go to bed last night and noticed at 10pm my car had started charging despite a profile timer being set for 0030-0430. I can only guess that as my battery was at 60% and my max charge was 100% it decided it...

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Hi, yes you may be right. Everything I have tried is within the thread with pics. Very simple summery, used to be able to charge between 0030–430 using just a profile for 4 months to get my cheap octopus electric. Got home, plugged in, charged for 4 hours, job done. Post software update, I can...

    2021 Chalk 4S w/ Ceramic Brakes Finally arrived!

    No, unfortunately not. I ordered the big calipers but they changed to the smaller ones mid build. Really wanted the 21” missions so had to stick. Saw your post some where re the ceramics. Awesome result. Ceramics are the business.

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Appreciate the input. The 5 pages on this thread were making me think I was mad, but you’ve surmised my issue perfectly ( and sticky plaster fix) and hence my sanity is reinstated! Out of interest have you had your software update and had to do this work around since or always been the case? I...

    100% charge showing 175 mile range

    I’d be having this checked at Porsche. I do a lot of short journeys and am around 180 miles on a full charge which is pretty rubbish but wouldn’t be happy if it were sub 140!

    Delivery day!!! Volcano with satin PPF

    As said stunning, and very well played. Be interested on pics post spacers. Maybe needs some colour on the calipers?

    2021 Chalk 4S w/ Ceramic Brakes Finally arrived!

    Looks stunning. Very similar to mine, albeit much cooler brakes ( PCCB envy !)

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Think you may be onto something here, but what a mad convoluted way of achieving a very basic charging request! So frustrating that for 4 months being working absolutely fine just using a profile, software update applied, now ridiculously complex! Just gone outside and amended the departure...

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Hi, pics posted are half hour slots so 3.5kw per 30 mins is 7kw per hour draw and this is the norm in the uk for this sort of charger ( single phase) . 7x 4 is 28kw and works out to be around 30% as I have the small battery. Thank you have your suggestion above but if I left out the profile it...

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Hi, I think you’ve muddled up my posts. The pics posted are my house electric smart meter readings. Completely separate to the car or any charging apparatus. I posted the pics to show my electric usage and when it was drawn. My last attempt at charging was using only Porsche profile and timers...

    This is what I had set. I just checked and can’t delete the departure time?

    Will my car charge tonight?

    Ok, so just to update setting a timer hasn’t worked. All I want to do is charge the car between 12:30 -0430 regardless of charge % as I have been for 4 months. Electric costs 5p an hour over these hours compared to 15p outside so I charge at a 1/3 of normal cost. Thought something wasn’t right...
