Finally! Thanks for the heads up, I've set this up in line with my Go Faster tariff & will see how it goes. Typically, just charged last night so won't need to again until the weekend.

It works :)

I did a single 15-minute test, it started 4 minutes late and stopped 2 minutes late - the full charge rate, no trickle - all confirmed with the IHD of my smart meter.

I do have a charging location set in the car (which you have to have with the ID.3), but no preferred time or departure times configured - so the car was at the mercy of the charger.

The one quirk I noticed is in the Stats part of the app - it shows the start and end times for when I plugged in and unplugged rather than just the actual charge window.

Finally! Now if only the car reported SOC over the AC charge cable then we could set charge limit % on our older cars (Zoe and Soul) too. Can't have everything, I suppose!

Ooo, I may allow my pod-point access to the internet now.
I might as well.

If your router has the ability to create wireless VLAN with separate SSID and different rules then its worth setting up an SSID for IoT devices like this that only need internet access. Basically separate them from your personal LAN so that they can't be used as an attack vector.

Finally, can't wait to try it out in the next couple of days.

I hope this means we might get something like Octopus Agile integration one day...

I've had this for a while (beta testing)

It's brilliant

Works very well

Plug in the car and it will come on at the time you select

Don't delay charging on the car itself is only thing

I did notice one thing during beta testing the PodPoint timed charging with the Corsa-e... if it was charging on schedule and you checked the battery state using the app and tried to change a schedule for pre-heating, for example, it would interrupt the charge, the app would say the car is now on deferred charge.

But the vauxhall app is rubbish and should be ignored

Why would you not just leave it up to the scheduled charge time set up in the car? I have mine set to 0030-0430 for Octopus Go cheap rate. Then just plug in when I need an overnight charge.

The Corsa-e and the Peugeot e-208/2008 only have an ON schedule. You can't schedule the car to witch off charging or set a charge limit. The app allows you to set the start and end schedule of the charge.
