In an attempt to pair the ev.energy app with my Toyota app, I came to discover that my car will not support the wireless transfer of my data. While I am unable to speak to the particulars of the app and its operation, I would like to commend their customer service department, in particular Chris K. In multiple email exchanges, Chris was helpful, informative, clear and extremely prompt with his responses. A real example of excellent customer service.

Apart from the superb functionality of this app, a measure of how good it is, is in customer support, there's no point in having a superb app and nobody to help when you need it...and this has the absolute best customer support I've ever experienced. I had a few minor issues. There's a 'contact us' feature and within no time at all customer service was on to it. Honestly, I've never had such service anywhere. Even checked back to see that everything was OK. Such amazing lovely people.

Inflexible and very unreliable. Has a "smart" setting, but doesn't even have a basic option to enable you to set your own times to start/stop charging. Very unreliable at actually charging at all; been left with an uncharged car too many times. All round worse than simply not having the app, both for cost and for trying to reduce load on the grid. Appreciate the developers contact, but hasn't actually improved anything.

Hi Matthew, we appreciate you getting back to us. Our smart charging algorithm optimizes charging based on the greenest and cheapest times and factors in grid load, which is why we don't have a timer function. We'd love to hear more feedback, so please do reach out to us at support@ev.energy to raise any issues! -Sofia
