  1. Pod Point abandons RFID cards

    General Charging Discussion
    Ah! Seeing as you've used the app successfully, can I ask how their pricing works, and what you were charged to charge? We've been looking at the website and app but couldn't see a scale of fees. (Of course, if I'm being thick and it's actually very obvious, let me know and I'll look shifty and...
  2. Academic research - Need reponses

    Off Topic and Banter
    Hi Christoffer, Thanks for circulating the survey, it's an interesting research question! I'm replying from the position of an EV owner but also research professional so I hope these comments don't come across as too picky - feel free to ignore :) I've just ran through the survey, and you...

    I think it must have been back in 2010 or 2011 so before we bought our first Leaf. Still not seen 'Revenge of...'
  4. Dashboard rattle

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Oh yes, when you can't find or stop it, it can drive you to distraction.
  5. Need help from all EV owners, please!

    General EV Discussion
    Good point, that's definitely worth checking out - at my place there are just way too many research projects at undergraduate level to go the committee for each one so it sits with the supervisory review - as this study has had that, it did help my mind at rest. I must say, it's really nice to...
  6. Leaftalk forum down all day?

    Off Topic and Banter
    I think (hope!) it's a bit more than a bedroom server as Musfata has been talking about dealing with a data centre about the recovery but to be honest, we don't currently get involved in the admin side of things so I'm rather vague on the details myself. Thank you very much for the offer of...

    That's right - Mustafa (owner + admin) works full-time in a role that's not related to the forum which can make it hard to spend time online when it's running merrily, let alone when there are things to fix. Thanks for the good wishes, we're keeping our fingers crossed hard here too :)

    It's still poorly, I'm afraid - more details here: https://speakev.com/threads/leaftalk-forum-down-all-day.4339/ We're going to check in with the admin this morning and get a progress update but it is concerning that it's taking a while to fix... Jef's planning to update Twitter when there's...
  9. Battery Electric Vehicle Owners Survey

    Good move - thanks :)
  10. Battery Electric Vehicle Owners Survey

    General EV Discussion
    Hi Scott, You received quite a lot of feedback when you posted this over at LeafTalk (Nissan Leaf Owners Survey) - were you able to make those changes before collecting data from this new cohort? I'm thinking particularly of the sensitive question re: salary. All the best with the project!

  12. IKEA Milton Keynes, rarely free?

    Charging Locations
    I've never seen another EV there when we've been - and yes, we have charged up while we're shopping so that's one out of two spaces out of action for the duration. (That said, we don't visit very often and it's almost always after work so early evening time.) I've not seen it ICEd either, but...

    *sob* Not jealous at all, I promise! (Have a fantastic time. I've heard from a few people who have been who all say it's breathtakingly brilliant and utterly mad.)

  15. The public's perception of electric vehicles

    General EV Discussion
    Hi there, Done - here's some feedback. I liked the information sheet and briefing notes - very clear. Has your study been cleared by your university Ethics committee? I'd like to see that noted on the sheet. Have you based this on a US survey? 'automotive vehicle' seems to be clunky...
  16. MK parking reserved for charging vehicles

    Charging Locations
    Hmm. OK, this is probably derailing the argument somewhat but... many of the charge points in MK are often 'red lit' - indicating that for whatever reason, they're not working. At that point, is it ok for an EV to park there and not charge or does it revert to a standard parking space that...

    Groups, Gatherings and Regional Discussion
    Were you thinking evening or daytime? September 6th or September 20th would be our best dates - September 13th may be possible but we do have other plans that day.
  18. How have colleagues, friends and family reacted to your EV purchase?

    General EV Discussion
    No-one reacted badly at all. My sister wrote a series of limericks and backronyms around the theme of milk floats, my Dad was firmly convinced that the 'free ride' of public charging probably wouldn't last the 3 year PCP term (good call, Dad!) and my Mum loved the quiet, smooth ride. They did...

  20. EVs on TV

    General EV Discussion
    It's going back a bit, but there was a Leaf in Fringe: 30 second video here. Some people got very het up at the product placement angle, I was quite pleased to see it as it wasn't long after we bought ours!
