Hi @Archer17, thanks for the help. It’s fine really. There was the initial disappointment of the main advertised Ohme features not working with the Enyaq, but as long as it can reliably charge my car during off-peak rates then it is doing its job. And it seems like it will do that.

I just need to verify the charge rate which I’ll do once I’ve run the battery down enough.

Had the ohme fix applied to my charger. It has to be applied to individual users at the minute so do get in touch if you are experiencing slow charge speeds.

Had x3 full speed charges since they applied the fix, hope it continues so we can get reliable charges.

I asked what the fix was and was told "The changes are to do with the CP line and the mapped charge speeds"

I've had my Enyaq i80 for 6 weeks now. I have a PV array and hence a Zappi charger. For the first month when the sun shone I was able to charge off the Solar panels, Charger set to eco+ ( when ever there is a surplus for export the Zappi sends it to the car, it waits when the house demand changes then restarts) there are no time or location settings in the car.
I find I need to set the low battery setting below what the battery is actually at or the zappi will start to charge immediately to that level. The Skoda intent for this (ASFIK) was if you came home with a low charge level to immediately charge to a minimum to allow you to pop to the shops.
Since the sun went down I have shifted to largely charging during my low tariff night slot 00.30 to 04.30am. I have set location and timer profile in the car, again set min battery level below where it actually is (otherwise as above seems to happen). Then set charge to level to be what the battery starts at +30% which is what I seem to get from 4 hours at 7kW. If you set it to high it sometimes keeps charging outside the period which is expensive. Because of this I think the 10% increments the Enyaq allows are to coarse.
I have another option on the charges which is to use ECO+ and a boost period set within the charger to coincide with my low tariff period. While this is recommended by many on the Zappi forum I have yet to perfect it reliably. The reason it is recommended it to overcome a problem know on VW EV's where the EV goes into a deep sleep and doesn't wake up when the charger tries to charge, although nobody has confirmed the Enyaq having this problem.

Quick update. I charged last night from about 56% to 90% in the 4 hour window, and it made it all the way, which it couldn't have done if it was only charging at half speed. So everything seems well with my Ohme charger in terms of charging speed, as far as I can tell.
