    Now that the cheapest OLEV charger is at least £570. Doesn’t it make sense to just get an Ohme cable and install a commando socket? What’s the downside of using a commando socket? Especially since I’m still renting houses, I’d rather not fork out £570 for an EVSE. how much would an installed...
  2. General Charging Discussion
    Morning all We have a ZE50 GT Line on order through a lease. Should arrive in the next 6 weeks. This is our first EV car. We have had quotes for installing a home wall charger (Ohme) that are all around £600 including the OLEV grant. The only worry I have is that I won't have a granny cable...
  3. General Charging Discussion
    Hi All, First time poster here, hello! I'm currently not an EV owner or driver; I really want one but currently can't yet afford one. So yes, I'm a filthy ICE driver (especially filthy; it's a Euro 3 diesel!). Don't worry, I respect the parking spaces near the chargers! My father currently...

    Hello All, Thank you for letting me join your Forum. I currently have a BMW i3 94Ah BEV and have a Rolec 32A wall charger installed. My wife has just swapped her Discovery Sport in for a .. BMW i3 94Ah REV, will be collecting it in a couple of days time. I understand that we can get have...
  5. General Charging Discussion
    Hi, Since taking delivery of my BMW 330e a few months ago I have been relying on plugging the granny charger into a 13A socket in the garage and running the charging cable out under the garage door. I then leave the charging plug tucked away in the corner of the driveway when I go out. With...

  7. General BMW EV Discussion
    Yesterday I had a 32A (7kW) charger installed. I mainly signed up for it to future proof myself whilst government grants and installer discounts apply. I know it will only reduce the charge time of my car from about 3 hours to 2. I have just plugged my 330e in but it's difficult to tell if it...
  8. Renault ZOE
    Renault website says "Home Wallbox 7,4kW (32A) Included" and keeps referring to 7.4kW. Chargemaster site says it's a 7kW (30A) charger they provide. I have a feeling the 7.4kW measurement comes from back in the day of the British Gas home charger deal (and I believe Rolec have a 7.4kW / 32A...
  9. Kia Soul EV
    Hi All, Yes I have read all the current forum content on Kia Soul EV OBC, but I am just after any thoughts. For the last two weeks, since we had the lovely hot weather, I can't seem to charge reliably on a 32A connection be it at home or out, it flashes up with a ridiculous time remaining like...
