What is the Jaguar charging app?
That's another name for the Jaguar Remote App (from the Play Store or the App Store)
No, there is a separate app called “Jaguar Public Charging”. It’s not the same as the remote app.

Thanks, how can I use that to charge for £8? I see nothing to that effect

You use the Public Charging app to start a charge. That price is only available on Ionity chargers (actually £8.80). Other chargers are cheaper if you don’t use the Jag app.

Or the RFID card/token linked to your Jaguar Public Charging account, for us fortunate enough to have received one...

On a recent 600 mile road-trip I was consistently getting 80kWh from Ionity 350kW chargers, which I was quite pleased with especially when using the Jaguar Charging App to get £8 fixed fee.

I didn't know about the hazard warning light trick, I'll try that next time. What an amazing Easter Egg!

Does it matter if they're on before charging sequence commences or can you just do it during?

Best, Rob
The hazard warning lights have to be on before you start charging.
You can lock the car, no Problem (I tested this twice now)

If you turn off the hazard lights, the charging speed will go down after 2 Minutes counted from turning the lights off 😉
If the car is still charging at 100kw of course
Many thanks!

I tested it at an Electrify America station and the hazard light trick seems to work on a 350kw charger. It dropped from 97kw to 80kw around 2 minutes after turning the lights off. I didn't have success at a 150kw charger for some reason. This will be great for my next road trip!

You have to check, if the 150kw charger was or is a real 150kw one. There are chargers out in the world listed as 150kw. But they only deliver 150kw on 800V systems like in a Porsche Taycan.
If the car does not start at 96 -98 kw, but starts at 76-78kw even the SoC is under 10%, this might give you the clue.
There is a 200A limit on chargers like this (its written on the plug somewhere).

On the other hand, if the car has too high SoC at start of charging, it won‘t go up to 100kw at the beginning also.
The trick is , of course, not working then 😉

There must be something else, I've tested a charge on a 350kw charger, tried multiple times to activate and deactivate hazard lights, and it did not changed anything. I even stopped the charge, and restarted it with flasher on before plugin the car, with any change. I may a module in the car with a different software version.

Strange curve hazard lights or not. Was your battery very cold ?
