Hi

I have an e-niro and my home charger is a Zappi as I have solar panels. My issue is that when the surplus from the panels falls below 1.4kw the charging pauses and doesn't re-start when there is a surplus. This means that I have to manually start charging through the UVO app every time, which gets a bit of a pain every time the sun goes behind a cloud. Is there an easy fix or solution to this?

Check out eco and eco+ settings. I think you have yours set on eco+, but eco may be better as it doesn't pause. Read all this on Zappi website.

Thanks, but using this setting means that it takes 1.4kw from the grid when there's no surplus solar. I either want all solar or none, I don't want to pay for daytime trickle juice.
