I have tried the new timed charging now a few times with mixed results, a few listed below, just for information purposes, in the hope it will help with future development.
Thanks to your feedback I studied up a bit more on the inner workings of relevant Android framework API's and I figured out why you were seeing such delayed actions from WattCat. I've done some refactoring and will be pushing out a new update later today :)

I also have some trouble with the new feature.
My car was set to max 85% charge, but it got 100
The app gave a lot of messages through out the night.
I am on 1.2.3

Oh wow. I'll have to check if there's a bug there when max SoC is enabled. Thank you for reporting the issue. I also found a race condition issue that I need to fix.

Luckily, I have all day to tinker with it :)

Thanks for bearing with me through all the updates :)

no, thank you for all your excellent work. I know just how hard it can be to get software effectively 'bullet proof'. You have a willing set of testers out there who give lots of quality feedback which from I know from personal experience really helps stamp on those pesky cockroaches that seem to get everywhere at times.

A lot of us also have time on our hands at the moment so "Carry on and keep Coding"

Thank you! I spend more time writing unit tests than app code. Testing I have to do with my own vehicle however is so time consuming that I have no problem admitting that I use you guys as a test bed occasionally :)

Plenty of willing testers at the moment. Nothing better to do.

Thanks for the continued work on WattCat ardevd, I hope you and your family are fairing well through these strange times.

I was coming here to post about issues I was seeing with timed charging. I noted the discussion here and the updated version available in the Play Store. So I have updated the app and will test how it goes this evening. I'll report back if there are issues following this update.

I was taking advantage of the bright sun today and charging the car with the granny charger. It consumes very close to the output of my solar panels.
Anyway, I moved slider to stop at 60% charge. But, I noticed that the time to 'Full' didn't change.

Would it be better or more accurate to show the time to the charge limit and not to 'Full'?
