Hi
Does anyone have a Zappi v2 with solar install and can successful charge their Q4 in Eco+ (100%) mode.
Looking for hints and tips if there is anything in the zappi 2 settings I can adjust to stop the Zappi going into Charge Delayed mode. The Q4 really doesn’t like the intermittent solar charging but annoyingly when it gets into this state it means my scheduled overnight charge fails.
Thanks.

No, I haven’t made any progress. I have updated firmware on the zappi and tried the time delay settings but once the Q4 puts the zappi into Charge Delayed that’s it until I unplug and re-plug. Very frustrating.

Yes, Zappi 2, solar and a solar battery. There are a great bunch on the GIvEnergy forum who were fabulous at helping me. The key settings on the Zappi are:
Eco+
MGL 50% (sets the level that the car will take from the grid - set at this so when the clouds come out you take a little bit of grid energy)
In grid/network settings, set to ‘Avoid Both’ to stop drain on house battery

Now when the car is plugged in, the Zappi waits for a surplus and then when the sun comes out, it starts charging (and I feel very smug)……

And smart boost if you have something like octopus which gives you a few low cost hours - I can’t get this as we cannot get a smart meter as we are in an area of no coverage

Does your Q4 and Zappi work happily with Eco+ then?
