  1. Charging Networks
    Hi. I’m Barry in South Devon and am about to start leasing a new VW eUp. I’d welcome any advice about which networks to join and whether I need to order any cards so as to maximise charging flexibility and minimise costs when away from home. Thanks.
  2. General Charging Discussion
    Why is it that every single app I've tried to use (on the rare occasions I travel any such distance that I'm going to need a public charger) are basically terrible? I'm talking about "generic" apps that provide you with a way of finding chargers, not the network-specific apps (which are just...
  3. First Generation Ioniq
    I am picking up an used Ioniq over the weekend and at least until our driving gets to normal level (which doesn't look to be until Spring of next year), I am looking to not install a home charger. With the driving we are currently doing, we should be ok with charging the car no more than twice a...
  4. Renault ZOE
    hi all, I am new to this Zoe. I went on rlink store on the r-link1 radio. Just for a test I tried downloading aquarium to the radio it said it was free. but then a message, not enough room or something , download on PC and SD card. Registered account with rlink store on PC - confirmed in in...
  5. General EV Discussion
    I have Jaguar's Remote app and MyPace on my watch; they offer some basic functions that avoid taking phone out of pocket (the horror!) ABRP, Plugshare and Chargepoint have watch apps. I've only tried installing ABRP but when launched it admits it's only available for Premium subscribers. Any...
  6. Ice Breakers
    Got a Leaf 2018 a couple of months ago and most of our mileage is local skill or home charger is great. Just done our first long trip and no problem with range and finding chargers but we now have six different charging apps and £30 pre-loaded credit. My wife now hates the car as what should be...
  7. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    I'm due to collect my new Leaf 2.0 Tekna tomorrow. It's an upgrade from my 30kwh Tekna. With the old car I was using the excellent android app Leaf Manager and the horribly slow Nissan EV app. Does the new Leaf use the same apps or are there new apps?
  8. Charging Locations
    Hey everyone - just wondering what you use to check if a charging location is available for use? I'm in the UK and have a number of apps on my iPhone, none of which seems to give a quick, reliable indication if a point is currently available - although this might be down to my not fully...
  9. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    After doing lots of research into EV I went to my local Nissan dealer today to look at the Leaf as it was the first on my list of potential purchases. Before I knew it I'd done a test drive and bought a 15 plate 24 kWh acenta. I'd thought if I bought a leaf at all it would have to be the 30...
  10. General Nissan EV Discussion
    I have just taken delivery of a used Leaf.... the car is great but I'd like to take advantage of using my phone to check and control features. The problem I have is that there are so many of them and I'm not sure which I should used.... looking for advice. I have an iPhone and have so far...
  11. Ice Breakers
    Hello all, we are just about to take delivery of a Merc B250e, our first electric vehicle. I don't want to clog up the forum with the same old questions so can anyone point me to an FAQ or beginners guide that will explain about the public charging schemes, different types of charge points, how...
  12. Charging Locations
    Hi. I just drove my brand new Leaf south from Warrington late afternoon recently. The car was fully charged, and I thought I should be able to make Warwick services. As it happened, I was left with 11 miles showing and I reckoned 7-8 miles to the Services. :( The car was complaining, asking me...
  13. Ice Breakers
    Hello all, I have taken the plunge and ordered a 30kW LEAF. It's due for delivery 14th November. I'm on the east coast (find hull on the map and keep going towards spurn point). We are getting the leaf, not for any environmental concerns - mainly beauce of the running costs. It will be our...
