As a Nissan Leaf Owner AND a Twizy Owner, it’s great to have most of our family needs met by electric cars.
However, I’d really like to figure out how to put a timer circuit on the Twizy so that I can charge at night time on cheap rate electricity.
Also, I believe setting a charger to finish timing just before I need the Twizy will prevent it sitting at 100% SOC all night, something I know electric car battery packs don’t like doing.
So far, the choices are:
-A DIN rail timer in a Rolec-style charging pod.
- A Timer in the car (somewhere)
- A combination of relay and Open Vehicle Monitoring System http://www.openvehicles.com/ – which would give us remote state of charge readings and perhaps other remote features with a little hard work
The above may or may not also include swapping the 13A cable for a type 2 cable…
