I might have overlooked this but in the My Renault app, is there any way to change the maximum charge % limit?

I have this set to 80% via the vehicle settings function in the car but, for example I decide I want to go on a trip tomorrow and want to charge to 100% overnight, can I change this from the app? Or only via the settings in the car 🤔

I can change charging mode in the app ie instant, delayed, scheduled, can’t see any way to change the limit though

I haven't found a way, and I really want this to be a feature. It's a bit annoying having to go to the car to change the charge limit

For what it's worth, I've been experimenting with the Renault API to automate things, and this setting isn't currently available there either, so it's more than just an app ommision I think.

My compromise is to set the car's target to 100%, then my automation code has its own target and stops the EV charger once the car reaches it. I poll every 15 minutes as the Renault API is heavily rate-limited.

The idea is to charge to a base level (60% by default but I can override it via an Alexa skill) on cheap electricity at night, then let whatever excess solar I have during the day go to the car. I've reached 100% on excess solar once this year.
