Home Screen

Control Mode:

  • Stop: Ceases any active or scheduled charging, including solar tracking.
  • Auto: Allows solar charging and scheduled charging to operate. Price limits will apply if set.
  • Charge Now: forces the EV to charge using the Charge Amps rate below until the Charge Limit is reached. Price limits are ignored.

Note: the control mode will reset to Auto each time the vehicle is unplugged.

Selected Vehicle: This control is visible if you have multiple Tesla vehicles under your Tesla account. Charge HQ will currently only control a single vehicle at any given time.

Charge Limit: sets percentage the vehicle battery will be charged to when charging from solar or in Charge Now mode. A Tesla EV is required to set Charge Limit. Note that separate (lower) limits can be applied to scheduled charging.

Charge Amps: Sets the maximum charge rate in Amps. This is used in Charge Now mode. This can generally be set the maximum level available unless you have a reason for reducing it. Note that separate limits are set for scheduled charging.
