It is possible that you are in a hurry or that you have an unexpected meeting. If in that case, you don’t have time to use Smart Charging, you can disable it by clicking on the “. . .” button in the upper right corner of the “Dashboard” screen. Once you have turned off Smart Charging, your vehicle will start charging immediately and tado° will not interfere with the charging process.

Turn on Smart charging afterwards so that you can enjoy the benefits of Smart Charging again.

You can also activate the Boost Mode to charge as soon as possible until your Smart Charging level.

If you need, it is also possible to set a "Start Time" for your charging sessions. This will determine when you want tado° to start calibrating (calculating your most optimal charging schedule) and performing your Smart Charging session!

For example, you may want to delay all and any charging until the time when your off-peak tariff starts. If that is the case, all you have to do is set your Start Time to the same time when your off-peak tariff starts.

Please keep in mind that this is not possible if your car does not support managed charging: Is my car supported in the tado° Smart Charging App?

You can always adjust your settings during a Smart Charging session. The adjustments you make are immediately processed. Please remember that the minimum required charging time is determined by the combination of the maximum charging speed of your car and your home charging station.
