    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...

  4. Home Charging Installation
    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...
  8. Home Charging Installation
    Hi All, I am thinking about getting an Ohme charger which only comes tethered. As I need a longer cable to reach the car I was thinking about connecting a Type2 extension cable something like this Gen3.2 Type 2 Extension / Type 2 charging cable Has anybody done this and does it work???

    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...

    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...
  12. Kia Niro
    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...
  16. General Charging Discussion
    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...
