I am an EV newcomer. However the only thing I have learned regarding the charging is to ensure the connection is firmly and correctly in place. A firm handshake! Not sure how the individual connectors are involved in the process of initialisation. But if the communication is not perfect I guess problems occur. The zappi itself seems to have some good charging options though. Not long now then. It is fun to drive.Bazza I have PMd Anglodude as I have the same Zappi. Car arriving Monday so just want to know any hints/tips before she lands. Don’t want charging issues day one!
Any help appreciated.
I have realised that I have to keep firm pressure on and there seems to be a click as it locks in place. I haven't had any more problems with the zappi timed charge either.I did notice when I plugged the charger into the car, I thought it fitted well. The green light came on, but no flashing. So realised it was not charging. I pushed again, very hard, and the charger went in another 10mm and all was well. The green flashing light.
Interesting it was the 'proper charger' that needed more initial force. The 10amp granny charger never had any issues. A further to the story, I had actually started the charge at Tesco in Bicester for my 2 weekly shop. Gone to the restaurant for breakfast. I thought over the charging lights and realised it was not running. Checked the app several times, and the charger never said it was in use. Went back, changed to another charger, and realised that one wasn't working properly. Then gave the plug a really heavy push into the car, it slipped in further and started charging immediately. I expect it will be easier in the future, (Except I have bought a new 32 amp cable).I have realised that I have to keep firm pressure on and there seems to be a click as it locks in place.
