Re: Huawei p30 lite wireless charge from Kia Niro 4

Re: PHEV Charging

To those worried about the charge currant rather than charge time, I recommend changing the charge rate using the black square button on the back of the display unit.

I’m 6’3” with size 13 feet and my left foot parks neatly under the foot pedal. What’s the problem?

Re: PHEV Charging

Don’t be ashamed. I had a hunch but searched all the manuals and found no mention of the red flashing light.

Re: PHEV Scheduled Charging

Re: PHEV Scheduled Charging

No, I meant that on the AVN PHEV charging settings I have set it to “charge on schedule” having set the schedule and for good luck selecting off peak tariffs and setting the off peak hours too.
