I have mine set to 20:30-01:30 in the PP app every day (to match my Go Faster off-peak period) and just plug it in on the nights when I need to charge, it just works for me.
Interesting you can have a Go Faster period outside the early hours, didn’t realise that, is that at 5.5p?

Also, on the nights you charge, are you plugging in before the scheduled time is set to start?

That’s mostly why I switched to Go Faster, you can pick a start time as early as 20:30, and yes I opted for 5 hours at 5.5p.

And yes, I plug in before the timer period, I’ve never checked the colour of any lights as it’s just worked so haven’t paid any attention.

Ah, interesting, so just to be sure, normally the PP light is blue, if there’s an active schedule, but it’s not charging it should be yellow, once changing it should be green?

I never see a yellow light, could be a clue mine needs sorting?

But I thought if the light is red on the car it won't start charging?

I also tried this yesterday
.when the charging port turns RED the cable is unlocked and can be removed.
It did start a charge though but don't like the idea of the cable not being locked into the car.

We get red light on occasions but seems to charge ok at the scheduled time

Only time I am really concerned now is when we get red light on the PP
