Adjust charge current from the app?

Adjust charge current from the app?

Seems this should be available, maybe a safety issue?

What is a safety issue?

You have to use the internet to see your car burn down ;-)

+1 to adjust for convenience. Example: I will charge on 30 MPH (220v/32a circuit). I need 140 Mi. I have 10 hrs. Change so charges slowly (14MPH) overnight instead of charge fast then STOP.

@WEST TEX EV - adjust the amps at the car when you set up the overnight charging.

Just think it deserves to be in app. Prefer to fiddle at app. Not sitting in car. #FAMILYTIME.

It isn't safe to control the power flow from a remote app. Think of the consequences of a hack.

Sure consequences of a hack...you mean like someone turning on climate control to max and draining your battery, or venting the windows when it is raining...ohh ohh or how bout getting your car's location, unlocking the doors and starting the vehicle and driving away in your car? You mean like those consequences? Changing the charge current within the limits of the charging dongle is the least of any worries I think.

@shank15217: "Think of the consequences of a hack."

Please, continue.

Unlock the car.
Open the windows in a rain storm.
Summon

Changing the charge current is a risk. Really ?
