  1. Renault ZOE
    Hi I’ve owned several EVs and had my Ohme smart charger for a year now with no problems. Just got a Zoe and it won’t charge at all on the Ohme charger according to the schedule. It knows it’s plugged into the Ohme and there are no errors I can see but Ohme doesn’t deliver any charge at all and...
  2. Vauxhall/Opel Corsa-e/Mokka-e
    Hi, just a bit concerned as I am new to owning an EV. I recently bought a 2020 plate Corsa E 50kw and I'm unsure if it's excessively draining the battery. I have had it for 7 days and charged it now 3 times(including the full charge from the garage when picking it up). I'm not accelerating...
  3. Citroen eC4
    Hi Is it possible to automatically stop charging at a certain SoC? Say if I wanted to only charge to 80% on my home charger? I know many EVs have this possibility, but the only charge setting I have found on the E-C4 is to make it charge at a certain time. But this is a cumbersome and not very...
  4. Charging Locations
    Apologies if this has already been covered - I searched and couldn't find anything but please signpost if it has been. Does anyone know where one might download a dataset of public charge points or access a webservice? I'm after the data that is used in zapmap or plugshare (or similar) but...
  5. Tesla Model 3
    Is anyone else seeing this message since the latest software update? My charge port opens when using the app and from the main screen in the car but not when pressed when the car is unlocked. I've put in a service call but wondered if anyone else has the same issue?
  6. Renault ZOE
    I'd like to refresh the topic as I couldn't find any definitive advice. Years have passed by and there are now lots of products out there that could resolve the issue with dead 12V batteries after a long parking. I've found both the solar chargers that work inside the car as well as OBD...
  7. Volkswagen ID.3
    Hey. I've had my ID3 for about over 3 months now. I'm a little concerned about the range I'm getting. It was advertised as being 260 but the range only ever displays as 200 when fully charged. This is how it has been since delivery. To be clear: Charged to 100% No other gadgets switched on...
  8. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, Just wondering if there's any Soul 27 owners that know if the car still only charges to 84% on a rapid charger? I know the 30kWh version charges to 94% but has there been any updates to allow the 27 to do this also or do cars with the latest service updates only charge to 84%? Cheers
  9. General Charging Discussion
    Hi, I am new to the world of EV’s so am still on a steep learning curve 😀 in my area there are a number of these units on the polar network. They have two sockets. Does this mean that they can charge two vehicles at the same time or is it only one?
  10. Hyundai Kona
    Is there any way of finding out history of charging in the infotainment system of Kona EV? I've been thinking about it for some time now and how great would be to have a log of every charging I do with info about time on charger, current used, time since last charge ect. If it's not possible to...

    Hi everyone, My name is Riccardo Branca and I am a student at Politecnico di Milano, currently working on a research about electric vehicles charging solutions. I would really appreciate if you guys could fill in this very very short questionnaire. I promise is very short. It's about...
  12. General EV Discussion
    My Leaf charges normally on all charge points, chademo, granny and my home 16A Rolec chargepoint. However when the timer is set and I plug into my Rolec charger and the Li-on battery is low, the charger connects with a small thump as normal and then disconnects as normal (because the timer is...
  13. General Charging Discussion
    Hi Everyone, my company has 2 7KW posts in a 300 car car park. The system they use is quite clunky requiring a visitor the come inside, and get a card that is needed to start and end a charge. I've started a conversation with the facilities team about what we could put in it's place and I was...
  14. Renault ZOE
    Hi y'all, I'm interested to know what's going on with my Zoe/Homecharge unit. My car was plugged in to charge last night and was unplugged this morning before going out. No pre-heating. The Polar/Homecharge Dashboard shows the 'Duration' of charge (basically when the plug was...
  15. Renault ZOE
    Hi all, I'm a new (3 weeks) owner of a Zoe. I've got a question about recharging it. It's an R240 model. I've been using a 22Kw chargepoint (Mill St. Perth) and the Renault ZE app reports this as being a slow charger. Today I used the rapid charger in South Inch car park, Perth. The ZE app...
  16. General Charging Discussion
    We know that batteries don't like to be left empty or full for long periods but most EVs have a bit of a buffer either side of the usable range and are pretty good at managing their own batteries. So, most of the time I just drive my car with a vague idea of keeping battery in the 20-80% charge...

    I Traveled 3 miles to a polar rapid in london shoreditch to be found iced aswell as a tesla driver waiting too, nothing could be done so i whipped out my cable from the boot of the zoe and connected the type 2 cable to the polar type machine cable and made like a 3 meter extension cord. I THINK...
  18. General Charging Discussion
    Can anyone give advice. I have the Smart Fortwo Coupe EQ (Electric) with on board 22kw charger. Can I plug my car in to a AC 43kw charging station? I assume the car would just draw the maximum 22kw from the charger, but am not sure. I don’t want to blow my car or the charger up until i know...
