The Smart Boost function will charge the EV with a minimum kWh figure by a set time. Smart Boost is available only in ECO and ECO+ modes. It is important to note that the Smart Boost function does not bring the battery to a certain state of charge. The target kWh is only the energy added during the charging session.
Using Smart Boost
When in ECO or ECO+ mode, each press of the button will cycle through the boost options as illustrated below:
Example: It's a sunny Sunday and you wish to ensure there is enough charge in the EV to get to work in the morning (e.g. 15kWh), but in the meantime, you want to use the surplus energy from the PV system to charge the car, so you choose to use ECO+ mode. At sunset, there was only 10kWh of charge accumulated. However, because you activated Smart Boost, and set the time you needed to leave for work, automatically boosted the charge in the night to top up the battery to the required 15kWh by 7 am
Programming Smart Boost
- From the main screen, press menu (3 lines) to enter Main Menu.
- Select Smart Boost from within the Charge Settings menu. The SMART BOOST screen is then shown.
- The boost can now be edited: Use buttons to edit the target time and amount of charge (kWh) that is required.
- Use the to move to the next value, and to return to the main screen once the required Smart
Boost parameters have been set.
Activating Smart Boost
|When charging in ECO or ECO+ mode, press + until SMART BOOST is shown.
|The SMART BOOST icon will show the target time and the pre-set energy amount.
|zappi will then test the EV for a few seconds, to determine the maximum charge rate.
|The boost will start at the latest possible time to achieve the set energy amount if the current charge session has already accumulated enough energy, the boost will not be required and so will not operate.
|Once on the home display, click on the zappi icon
|Ensure your charge mode is either ECO or ECO+, Tap on smart within the configure boosts option, using the blue slider, and choose how many KwH you wish to have charged by a set time.
|Press Boost Now to activate.
The required energy and target time can be altered only when Smart Boost is not active. These settings are in the Charge Settings/Smart Boost menu option.
Cancelling Smart Boost
The boost can be cancelled by pressing + until Cancel Boost is shown.
