Ohme & e Niro questions

2246 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!

The communication between the Ohme app and the Kia API is relatively new after an update. The app does not display the current SOC as % but as miles. I said earlier you must set up your UVO account first. Then when signing in to app and setting up for first time you will be asked for your UVO sign in details. This allows the app to talk to your car. Let the app take control of scheduling and set the car's charging limit to 100% in the car itself.
I found after setting up it took a while to show and sometimes needed a restart of the UVO and Ohme apps or the phone itself.
If you let car drop down to e.g. 20% then you won't get enough charge to 80% on Octopus Go in the 4 hour cheap window. I charge only in this cheap window so do this every night as a top up to keep to 80% by each morning.
