V2H is just about getting established in the UK for Chademo. But Chademo appears destined to go the way of Betamax before much longer. V2H is allegedly 'coming' for CCS, but the real availability of V2H compatible CCS cars, or corresponding bidirectional home chargers is still vanishingly small...
Is it me or has anyone else had problems with the new Shell Tritium chargers? Twice now I’ve had the charger happily chat with the car, ask for bank card or RFID card then say charge finished as it doesn’t lock CCS plug into the charger.
Don’t have this on any other chargers. Thoughts, suggestions?
Can my 2013 zoe us a street charger if the charger features CCS? I note that the CCS socket looks exactly the same as a type 2 cable except for the 2 extra pins at the bottom , so can the supplied zoe street charging cable in the boot fit into the ccs socket on the street charger side or will it...
Noob question here about my pending Model 3. It has a CCS port, but the top part of the CCS port is the Type 2 / Tesla part. Given that Model S's etc have only this part, does this mean that the Model 3 can use either charge cable at the Tesla Superchargers? And if not, why not?

Last night I helped, and witnessed a brand new liveried up demo Kona, being charged from 24% to 70% before I left,
It was at the full 110amp from the start and I was surprised after all the negative press on here about them on EH I didn't think it was possible below...
I am considering changing my current Leaf 24KW to another make.
My current choices are INPO Leak 62Kw - Kona 65Kw - Kai Niro 65Kw.
Current the Leaf uses Chadamo and the other 2 CCS.
Once I change the car I would like to travel over into Europe.
So which charging method would any one...
I changed from a Leaf to an Ioniq BEV last year, and am getting increasingly frustrated by the lack of CCS chargers in the UK, and the high failure rate amongst them (especially Ecotricity).
Has anyone seen or thought about making an adaptor from Chademo or Tesla Supercharger to a CCS plug? I...
I was just wondering if we knew what kind of socket the European spec Model 3’s are going to get ?
Presumably it’ll have a standard Type 2 socket which will allow 3 phase AC (upto what power? - 32a per phase would be nice) and DC supercharging. But do we know any more than this ?
With respect to BEVs we are currently in the inevitable standards war. And because there's huge investment in the rival systems it's not one that will be easily resolved.
Tesla has an adaptor which enables them to use ChaDeMo. But it's fairly clear that an adaptor one could reasonably carry in...
For my next long distance jaunt in my e-Golf I'm vaguely considering Ireland. I've never been, I have a conference in Dublin in September and by then I'll be needing a holiday. If I was being sensible I'd fly over with everyone else and hire a car to go touring.
But I'm up for a challenge, so...
Received an anonymous tip-off there's an "electric Clio 2019". I wasn't sure of this information so did some Googling.
Found: Nicole? It's the new 2019 Renault Clio, spied on test
..and an old post on 2019 Renault Clio To Get An Electrified Version, Likely A Plug-In Hybrid.
Putting it all...
