Are charging sessions recorded continuously / in smaller intervals?

Hi there

I'm evaluating whether easee is a fit for us.

In Switzerland, we have different electricity rates depending on whether it's day or night. To be able to correctly calculate the costs for a user, it is necessary to break down a charging session into smaller time intervals of let's say 15 minutes (or 1 hour at max). Is it possible to query the api like that? To be able to do so, I suppose that charging sessions would be needed to be recorded somewhat continuously ... is this the case?

My question put differently:
Let's assume I'm charging from 6.00 pm until 11.00 pm. Now, the rate of our electricity is changing at 8.00 pm.
=> Is it possible to query the api in a way to find out exactly how much energy the charger / user has consumed (during a single charging session!) between 6.00 pm and 8.00 pm? And vice versa between 8.00 pm and 11.00 pm? Or is the charging session only recorded in a very basic and limited way consisting of only "starttime", "endtime" and "total energy consumed during session"?

Best Regards
Nic
