Ohme & e Niro questions

2251 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  tommy_tj
Took delivery of my e Niro yesterday and as this is my first e car, I have a couple of questions regarding charging
I got the Ohme charger so I could sync it to my OctopusEnergy tariff. Plugged it in to charge and was expected it to show on the app the percentage of charge of the vehicle so would know when it was fully charged. Does it show anywhere?
Also, is it best to charge it daily and make use of the cheaper nighttime tariff rather than charging it, say, every 10 days when it will probably be down to about 20%?
Many thanks- I'm sure I'll have a few more questions in the coming days!

I’m not sure about the e-Niro but some brands do not make the battery status available to the Ohme. With my Polestar 2 I just look at the battery percentage and calculate from there how many percent I wish to add and set that as a custom charge with the ohme app.

I wouldn’t worrabout whether to charge every night or not, just do what works for you but don’t charge above 80 percent or so regularly if want to maximise long term battery health. Kia do recommend charging to 100% (not using a rapid charger) every couple of weeks.
