They better sort this as a priority otherwise those of us that have switching to smart tariffs will probably end up losing out overall. I guess I'll plug in at 11pm before bed and accept that the first hour or so, and the ones after 5am will still cost me full unit price

Where can I find easy instructions for setting the delayed charging time on my Zappi box?

More tests reveal if cable disconnected and re-connected charging starts at trickle e.g. 5km/hr.
On my charger unticking all charging bands results in 65km/hr.

I know it doesn't work, but... When I accessed this screen It wasn't very obvious how you even set up a charging window. It just allows me to dial in a 'departure time', but not a start time so to speak...

You need to swipe-up (twice I think) on the location screen to see the charging times (Start and Finish). The departure settings are independent, that they are on the same screen is confusing.

From the manual:

Select one of the pre-set options for setting the departure time.

In the displayed pre-selection option, you can use the functional surface to set or switch on following menu items:
  • Departure time
    Weekday(s)
    Repeat for the selected weekday(s)
    Interior cooling / heating
    Reduced charging current
    Instant charging up to a certain value
    The charging process starts immediately when the state of charge of the high-voltage battery falls below the set value.
    Charging up to a certain value
    Low tariff
    Time lapse for low tariff
    Automatic unlocking of the charging cable connector.
    Activate/deactivate the selected preselection option.
The preselection option can be renamed according to the preferred location by tapping the icon .

Prerequisites for starting time-delayed charging
  • The vehicle is connected to a charger that supports time-delayed charging.
    Time-delayed charging is activated in the application setting. Set up charging in Infotainment.
Information on the set time-shifted charging

If the departure time is set together with the charging, the charging process starts with a delay so that it is completed on time at the set departure time. If the period of the low tariff is also set, the charging process takes place primarily within this period.
If, after the vehicle has been connected to the charger, the state of charge is lower than the set lower battery charge limit, the high-voltage battery is charged immediately to the set charge limit.
If the scheduled departure time is set so early that the charging process cannot be fully completed, the desired state of charge of the high-voltage battery will not be achieved at the time of departure. The loading speed depends on the infrastructure used and its settings.
If you want to leave earlier than the set departure time, it is possible that the charging process has not yet started or is still taking place.
If possible, the departure time in the infotainment menu or in the application MyŠKODA change before starting your journey MyŠKODA Application.

Or:

The functional surface for the immediate start of the charging process in the infotainment menu or in the application MyŠKODA tap.

It's a good job Skoda don't make kitchen equipment: I would hate to try to use their egg timer :(
