so turns out zappi v2 charger did a firmware update end march, didn’t notice.


was bored the day and spotted a post about this firmware update fixing MG zs timed charging.

so installed version 2.176, set my timed charge for 1h30 in the future and waited.

DEEP JOY it woke up, I have timed charging all is well.

hope this helps anyone thinking about a zappi and MG.

I had updated the Zappi 2 to version 2.176 before the garage updated the MG ZS EV. Timed charging still did not work.

I can confirm now that the Zappi 2 is working well with the MG ZS EV. Four separate updates were applied recently by my dealer, as well as the re-routing of the driver door wiring loom. Looks like you need both the latest Zappi 2 and MG updates as you said.

I set the Zappi 2 on ECO+ and connected the car. When I locked the door, it starts charging then stops after a couple of minutes displaying 'Waiting on Surplus'. Car indicated 'Connected but not Charging'. A couple of hours later I set up a timed boost from 18:00 - 19:00 and from 19:30 - 22:30 on the app.

Worked like a dream. Zappi 2 is an excellent unit, especially if you have or plan to add solar/wind in the future.
