Hi,

I've got a Zoe ZE50 with the Renault provided granny charger.

I haven't tried using it yet, but was hoping to reduce the power draw down to 6amps. There doesn't seem to be any way to do that on the granny charger itself, and I couldn't see anything in the settings on the car. Is there something I've missed somewhere?

The Zoe is already terribly inefficient at 10 Amps. Dropping it down any further and you'll probably be losing more power than the battery actually takes. You can't change this on the Zoe.

Fixed that ;) 6 A is going into the filter capacitor bank. It's not lost, but phase shifted, so unused. and not payed for. But I am not trying to be facetious: going under 10 A is pretty much useless, so I agree with that part.
