    I asked about this months ago to the Tronity support. Unfortunately they won’t be able to do anything, it’s a PSA limitation :

    « no this is a PSA overall issue for AC charges. They implemented this so that the car can go to sleep.
    Only for DC charges an update will sent. We asked PSA already if we can get a refresh endpoint
    like the MyPeugeot App. But still waiting for it. »

    Likewise, this issue also affects the Corsa-e. I understand they like the car to "go to sleep", but why? What is the effect on the electronics of not sleeping (if only during charging) and send updates every 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes?

    I also suspect the cellular reception of PSA cars, in my case the Corsa-e, is limited. Hence, I often have to physically check on the car to be sure it is (still) charging and how far it got at that charging point. And yes, I have tried 'forcing' a refresh in the MyOpel (MyPeugeot) app by changing the deferred charging or scheduling/activating preconditioning (in case you didn't know, it works more often than the usual refresh options). I am even investigating options to 'chiptune' the car's software to wake it up every 60 minutes and sync its status.

    Anyway. Those issues are better aimed at PSA devs than here at Tronity. :-)

    You are correct, but we should have an option to at least perform the “force refresh” at some point, even if this first shows a popup with a disclaimer like what you described.

    I have the same issue on e-2008. If I refresh manually in MyPeugeot app its updated. Would be nice to get resolved

    This is the same issue on my eC4, however I just want to know current SoC after finishing charging for planning in ABRP. It finished charging hours ago and if you pull down to refresh it doesn’t seem to force an actual pull of new data.

    Ich habe genau das gleiche Problem wie der User Stein Mjede (e-2008)

    I feel performance has gotten worse.

    Previously (before the big Tronity v2 update?) Tronity % state of charge would lag, but still match the MyOpel state of charge in the app: so refreshing the status in MyOpel (through the tricks mentioned by Joost, above) would result in Tronity showing the same state of charge a little bit later.

    Now the two seem to be disconnected for me. Car has been AC connected for 3 days; MyOpel shows 74%, Tronity shows 24% :-(

    Is anyone noticing the same?

    The PSA API allows tronity to request to the most updated information (the same as opening peugeot app and refreshing), I know that because "PSA Car Controller" can do that, and that's my workaround, I have an automation that uses PSA controller to force refresh.

    Just an update from my side: I have other issues (location) but my battery percentage and odometer are updating again - sometimes still lagging by 1-2 hours, but rarely more.

    Regarding "PSA API allows tronity to request to the most updated information" - I'm not sure Tronity uses whatever API endpoint this is, it might also not be a good idea. AFAIK requesting such a refresh also wakes the 12V system in the car (you can tell, because some red lights turn on in the car when you refresh the Opel/Peugeot app), and thus this costs energy. If Tronity were to perform this call every 15 minutes, that might drain the 12V battery after a while. In fact, I think PSA stops accepting these calls if you exceed a certain rate, exactly for that - I read about some users who noticed that. Same thing happens when the car stands still for too long: it refuses to wake it up, to save (12V) battery power.
