My first test of 1.2.5 with timed charging was a success! Thanx, I will have a go again tonight.
One small GUI bug; some of the text in the charge page at the bottom can not be fully read:

1.2.5 Test nr. 2 did go as planned. Still working, though the app reports error at stopping the charge, but The car stopped charging at desired %
Nice

Thank you very much for testing. Could you also please make sure you're on version 1.2.3 and could you also try to disable and enable timed charging again and conduct another test? Your feedback would be most valuable. Also, what device and Android version are you running?

I had chance last night to do a small test, I enabled WattCat, plugged the car in, it started charging immediately, so I just pressed the pause button, then
WattCat switched on at the set time 00:01 hrs and then switched off again, I set it to charge for just 1 hour overnight (terminate at 01:00hrs) , it did stop charging but it was an hour after it should have stopped (02:01 hrs) still that is the best result I have managed so far. I think the hour difference was probably due to what you said up thread and that the app can take up to an hour to action commands, not sure otherwise?

I will try again when I can, but it might not be for a while again as there is not much chance to use the car at the moment.

PS I am on V1.2.8

Thanks for the feedback. Ideally it should actually have paused charging at exactly the specified time though to be honest, setting it from 00:00-01:00 is a bit of a corner case I may not have accounted for (though it should still work as intended of course). I'll try to replicate your results but like you, I don't get to drive much either :)

Yes I must admit, I never thought of that, next time I will try it for longer, could be a while off though before I get a chance :D

Could the hour difference be down to DST?

No ;) WattCat will follow your phone's clock.

It's more likely to be tied to your phone's power saving mechanisms. Certain OEMs like to mess with Android's framework in ways they shouldn't which result in odd behaviours especially when it comes to alarms and scheduled background tasks.

I did consider that before first posting this morning, but then thought the phone clock is always up to date so can't be. Also, it would have affected the start time aswell, not just the end time.
