I don't know if Rolec can upgrade to a model with built in timing, and afaik, modular timers for MCB bus don't have the capacity for 32A (more for lighting), but there's no reason why you can't get any widely available 13A timer and leave your granny cable connected all night.
At least that way, you're getting some cheap rate (maybe more than you think, 40-45 miles a night covers most commutes) and you've still got the prime-time fast charge available when you know you're going to need all the range you can get.

Now in Black HSE (every tech option, no bling) MY20 VIN 829.. IC S19B_19.35 Tele 16.2 Maps 100.153
Awaiting PV, Powerwall, Zappi.
Looking forward to free motoring. (barring the cost of all the kit !)

I have to ensure I have a full charge in the morning :-(

It doesn’t happen all the time, but I will get customers that call me at 8:00am and I need to drive maybe 100 miles to get to them. I don’t like Rapid Charging if I can help it, hence I will often get a 200+ round trip in a day.

Maybe I need to change my charger?

Simple maths.
Your annual mileage x (day rate - night rate) v Cost of charger upgrade
See what the payback period is.

(i pay about 2.35p/mile on exclusively E7)

As Jaguar guidance recommends limiting battery charge to 85% unless 100% is required to extend battery life why is there not a setting to facilitate this?!

I find myself having to set reminders on my phone to traipse out to the garage to unplug it. Tesla have this very simple option. If anyone here has contact with Jaguar this would be such a useful feature!
Do you have a link to this guideline you speak of?
It was recommended in the Jaguar Go i-Pace app, however it now doesn’t seem to be there anymore.

I did wonder why given that you can only use 85kw of the 90kw battery?

However I believe Tesla recommend not charging to 100%? Perhaps however they don’t cap the battery?

Also it would be good if the “stop charging” prompt in the app actually stopped charging until you wanted it to start again - perhaps to avoid charges at a charging point etc?

Yes, on both counts.
