You can set-up a charging schedule for your vehicle using the infotainment screen or the Kia Connect application on your smart phone.
Refer to the multimedia system and the Kia Connect manual about scheduled charging.
Scheduled charging can only be done when using a AC charger or the Portable Charging Cable (ICCB: In-Cable Control Box) (sold separately).
When scheduled charging is set and the AC charger or the Portable Charging Cable (ICCB: In-Cable Control Box) is connected for charging, the indicator lamp blinks from the first level to the last for about 3 minutes to indicate that reserved charging is set.
When scheduled charging is set, charging is not initiated immediately when the AC charger or Portable Charging Cable (ICCB: In-Cable Control Box) is connected. When immediate charging is required, use the infotainment system or the Kia Connect application on your smart phone to deactivate the scheduled charging or press and hold the charging button on the charging door for 2 seconds.
When scheduled charging is set, charging time is automatically calculated, so in some cases, charging may start right after the charger is connected.
If you press the charging button to immediately charge the battery, charging must be initiated 3 minutes after the charging cable has been connected.
When you press the charging button for immediate charging, the scheduled charge setting is not completely deactivated. If you need to completely deactivate the scheduled charge setting, use the multimedia system or the Kia Connect application on your smart phone.
