    Hi, just wondering if anyone out there (can't find any related posts) have the need and found a way to permanently secure a 3pin charger outside? I'm not ready yet for a fixed 500 quid+ jobby and know already that I'll soon tire of having to unplug my 3pin charger from my outside plug and put...

    Hi Guys. Newbie question here.... struggling to choose a charger for new Seat Mii Noticed a couple on the market that sneakily revert to a ‘dumb’ charger after 3 years unless a monthly subscription charge of £3-5 per month is paid! (Rolec, eo mini pro) Are there any others like this that I...

    So I've posted a similar question on another thread but might be more relevant in this forum. E-Niro 4 has been ordered, now time to look into a Home Charger, does the one on offer from Kia do the Job or should I look into another brand ? Also does the Kia come with it's own charging lead...

    Hi, myself and my partner have just ordered 2 EV vehicles Peugeot and Kia. Looking around for home 7kw chargers (of which we need 2 due to car useage), they are much more expensive that I though at £519 each minimum with the OLEV grant applied thus £1040 for both. Has anyone any experience of...

    Following on from this thread, in which I received lots of helpful advice (culminating in me digging a trench and Sparky laying chunky armoured to outbuildings), things progressed yesterday: A Podpoint pair travelled from Bristol (to my location west of Swansea) to install my charger. They...

    Hi all, I've ordered my first PHEV, (2020 Kuga). It will be used mostly for short commutes 5/6miles and for towing our caravan every 4/6 weeks. As I don't do loads of miles I probably would only need to charge it 2 or 3 times a week and this would almost always be overnight so no need for high...

    Yesterday I tried to charge in one of the Source London stations, I plug my cable on my eNiro try to charge but it couldn't connect to the Source London system, so I unplugged closed door and move the car forward 5 meters to the next station. And what is my surprise when the charger door didn't...

    Hi everyone, I’m getting a home charge point installed on Tuesday and it’s going to go on the front of the house, next to the front door. I went for the tethered option as I suspect when I get my car I won’t fancy pulling the cable out from the boot each time. I went for the standard length...

    Hi all, looking for some advice. I had a free 16A 3Kw charger installed over 5 years ago for free by British Gas/Nissan when I purchased my old leaf (which I no longer have). I've now ordered a new Ioniq so looking to replace it with a 7Kw untethered install..... but if i read the rules...

    Hi all, I'm taking delivery of my Model 3 probably near the end of November or early December. I'm deciding which charger to get and I wondered if anyone has anything to say about the Tesla wall charger? I know it's not OLEV approved etc, which isn't a problem, but I can't seem to find much...

    I am new to the EV scene. Just recently had a Rolec type 2,7.2kW, 5m tethered charger installed in my driveway but the cable is too short. What are the best options for me to change it to a 10m type 2 tethered cable? I got a quote from the company that installed it and it’s £200, which I find...

    This morning my rolec charger didn't charge my car using the timer. I put this down to user error and was able to make use of a rapid to get sufficient charge for the day. On returning home on 12% I plugged in as normal and commenced charging but within a few seconds charging stopped. I...
