I have an Ohme Pro home charger. I know that all its smart features can't be used with the MX-30 so I just set it to charge upto only 80% as shown in the car.
It has been on this afternoon charging from a battery level of around 38% but several times I get the message from the Mazda app that stating the battery is charged ( max 45%) and the charging process stops. I can only restart by setting a new schedule target on the Ohme.

Any ideas what's going on?

Fyldeman, what happens if you have no charge limit on the Ohme charger?

And then no limit on the car but on the Ohme?

And if the Ohme uses the manual non app charge?

Sounds like a signalling/communication issue as the car has to communicate when 80% is reached as no doubt know when it is set in the car. If the Ohme can be set to 80% charge it must measure the battery capacity in some form if the car has no setting on or what's the point of the feature? Hence my thoughts on communication/signalling. I have a different charger so just speculating!

From the Ohme Web site


Schedules set in the car
Some manufacturers allow for basic scheduling or timers to charge the battery which can be configured in the vehicle settings. If you have set a schedule in your vehicle this will conflict with any schedule set with Ohme and result in the car not charging as expected.

Alan, it was the car that kept stopping the charge stating battery was fully charged when only around 45% via the Mazda App.
The charger app was set to stop charging after giving power that equated to the required amount to charge car battery to a level of 80%. It doesn't then have to communicate in anyway with car as Mazda API is not yet integrated into Ohme chargers so they effectively are "dumb" chargers with Mazda.
I changed maximum charge to 80% in the car then charging continued OK till 80% was reached. Not sure what is going on.

Fyldeman, just asking. I just posted this from the Ohme site. I just wondered if this related to charge setting as well?

I don't think this is the case as I have not touched anything in car re charging since I bought it apart from yesterday when changing the charge limit. No schedules are set.
