  1. Home Charging Installation
    I've got a chargemaster installed and working fine, and just last week Octopus Go was finalised, so I'm charging nightly only in the "cheap" tariff times. The Chargemaster app allows me to set it to charge only 00:30 to 04:30, which I've set. But in the chargemaster log on the app it...

    Hi All, So I recently took delivery of the Mini Electric Level 2 and I love it. I have off peak charging with Octopus Go and I use my car settings to charge off peak with the BP Chargemaster. I login to my charge master portal at Chargevision | Login and I can see the my energy consumption but...

    I've always been told that people are more likely to complain than praise but looking at reviews for the chargemaster wall point; are they really as bad as the reviews would imply? Getting a free 7kw point through Renault but wondering if I'm better paying out of pocket and going with someone else?

    Hi...I'm very new to EV's but absolutely loving my Leaf 40. However, I am struggling with trying to schedule the Chargemaster charging point. I appreciate that I can set charge timer within the Leaf but I shouldn't really be having problems with the schedule on the charging point. I have two...

    Hi folks, I’m picking up my used Renault Zoe 20 this week and am very excited :)) I’m selecting a home charger and think I’m leaning towards the Pod Point. I was wondering if anyone had purchased or had any views on whether paying for the data collection feature on the BP Chargemaster premium...

    A Rapid and 2 socket 7kW post in Dunstable, but only two parking spaces. Hard luck if a 3rd car pulls up, Could be a problem if 2 are using the 7kW as this locks out the Rapid. One has to wonder at the installer who did this. Note - doesn't really matter as the Rapid is a DBT and has been...

    Does anybody suffer at the hands of Polar Plus customer services. I called them to let them know that neither of the charge points were working in Brighton Marina. The one lady told me that they were broken and wouldn't be fixed. The 2nd couldn't understand English very well and refused to...

    Got stung recently a month later from using a charger that I had gotten used to and had always been free (and Zap-Map said was free) to find it had gone chargeable. On one hand I know people scoff when I moan about a non-free charge-point, but I should point out that the "free" posts are part of...

    I am going to be placing an order for my first EV soon, and will be getting a 32A 7kw chargemaster point installed in my garage. I was recently thinking about the install of this, and have a couple of questions. 1 - Can a charge point be mounted to a timber building? All installs i have seen...

    I currently have a socketed chargemaster point at home for my Zoe but i'm eligible for another Podpoint installation with my Leaf under OLEV to the same specification, is it worth having this? Apart from the benefit of charging two vehicles at once, which would be infrequent, is there any other...
  19. 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...
