I think the suggestion was to turn the charger off at the main switch / circuit breaker, plug in to the car whilst it's turned off, and then (sometime later) turn on the charger. If the car starts charging, you'll know that a timed charge should work. Just the same as your timeswitch example, except you're the time switch!Sorry, can you expand on your kind suggestion please ?.
Currently I have NO timer fitted to my 3 year old 32Amp wall box.
Therefore I am unable to test if the Delayed Charge software works correctly.
One other member who has had the update done, but has no wall box as of yet.
Has used the supplied Granny unit and placed a plug in timer between the three pin plug and the 13 Amp socket outlet on the wall.
Then, set the timer for the charge to commence in the middle of the night.
He wanted to test if the car would work after the software update had been applied.
Yes, it did respond to the request to delay charge.
He is now confident that his car will delay charge when his wall box is fitted !.
