  2. General Charging Discussion
    Hello! Just wondering what people's experiences have been with different energy companies? E.On quoted 4-8 weeks which seems really long and also that it would cost between £153 - £200. But EDF said they can do it for free, but didn't give a timeline. Has anyone had one installed recently...

    Hi all, While I really like how many new public charging locations are springing up one thing that bothers me slightly is the huge variation in charging bay widths. It seems some places are willing to just use normal narrow "parking bay" widths which barely leave enough room to get out of your...

    Hi Guys, I got an EO mini installed on Friday and when I try to charge my Kia EV6 the light on the mini goes from blue to green and the cable try’s to lock into car but within a second unlocks itself again. The EO app says charging but no actual power output or charge rate. These are both still...

    Hi everyone, I am using a Project EV Charger which is OCPP enabled. I noticed that when the charger goes to SuspendedEV state, it does not take into account if I have set pre-heating or not. Does any face similar issues? Any help will be appreciated.

    I REALLY NEED HELP Gave up my 1st edition that came in last week, Opted for single motor, greater range, GT line. Trouble, Trouble & more Trouble. EV-6 refuses to accept a charge from my ChargePoint Fex level 2, 50 AMP charger. E-V6 accepts charge from commercial chargers without issue...

    I want a charge point. I also want an electric car & solar panels with battery! I hope to get all this over the next few months. My initial question is: What make/brands work best for my needs? The car will probably be a Kia EV6 The (feature rich) chargers I've heard of are: Hypervolt & Zappi...

    My 2015 Rolec charger (with a blue RCBO) has started to trip intermittently over the last few months. I've seen lots of posts on here about other Rolecs doing similar. Is there anything I can check or replace myself? I'm fairly handy - I replaced the original cable with a Type 2 one when I...

    Hello everyone, I have a cheap Type 2 charger from Amazon. Appears fairly well made, one of those rebrand ones. (WB IP2 AC1 13A) I have opened it up out of curiosity, and it appears to have dip switches for adjusting the current. I did some digging and came accross the manufacturers web page...

    Hi I currently have an electric vehicle on order (Toyota PHEV plug-in) and British Gas are going to do an online survey for the install. I don’t think I have the necessary electrics. I have a thick cable running from the consumer unit under the house up the wall of a nearby detached garage and...

    Hi all, First time poster here. I am an independent engineer/inventor and I am looking at solutions for the on-street charging issue. I have a solution in mind which I am working on but I wanted to get some thoughts from EV owners, specifically those of you that do not have off-street parking...

    Hi there, New and first post. Have just placed an order for a VW id.3, which hopefully will be delivered in a couple of months. VW pushed us towards a podpoint, but home chargers are a murky world so any help or advice would be great! Have seen the zappi, EASEE and hypervolt but there's...

    I'm plotting doing some groundworks for a future EV charger install. This is my situation: (hmm, really must do some gardening...) I'd like to install the charger roughly flush with the hedge, in between the two parking spaces. I need to dig up the flowerbed in the winter time, so I was...

    Just saw this article on BBC https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-58011014 when things get too smart, there’s someone smarter to exploit it. Maybe it’s better/safer to go for a less smart charger? Nevertheless, make sure you keep it updated with latest firmware etc!

    Hello to the group. This is my first post and I'll try to be brief. Together with my wife we are thinking to buy a corsa e. It has a range of about 330km. I've test driven the car and everything looks nice. The only problem that I have is the range of the vehicle. I work 85 km away from home...

    TL;DR - can any electrician fix an EV wall charger? I have a Rolec "white and green" wall charger, fitted in April 2015 for our first LEAF, which failed yesterday. Just after 6 years, of course. I've read these units have a manufacturing fault/shortcoming where an internal part can burn out...

    Hi there, new here and hoping for advice please. I'm getting a Kia eNiro 4+ in May with the Kia supplied 11kw 3 phase charger, but can't find any details about this charger. My electrician queried why they were supplying 3 phase chargers for domestic users and asked if it is compatible with home...
