charging at home

  1. Home Charging Installation
    Hi all, I'm a new member here, so first post please be gentle! :) I am lobbying the government to agree a workable domestic street-parking EV charging system matters in terms of meaningful climate action AND hitting the Government's own 2030 EV target. There are many UK households (like ours)...

    Is there any interest for a subscription based model for at home level 2 charging stations? Say $30/month. This would include a new charger with network capabilities (you can charge guests), installation included, upgrade of new charger year 5, and 25% off of all level 2 charging stations.

    EDIT Thank you for all the responses to my survey! The survey is now closed. It has been really useful to have the thoughts on my proposed app for my project from those with electric vehicles. Thank you. :) Hello everyone, I am in my final year of university, studying Media Production. I...

    Hi. Long-time lurker and first-time poster. I live in London where the rise in EV ownership has been really noticeable recently (to me at least). There are a number of public charging points near me now - mostly ubiriticty street lamp chargers - however, they seem to always be used by the same...
  5. General BMW EV Discussion
    I have had my 2020 330e for almost a month now and loving it, having covered 800 miles and still with over a quarter of the original tank of fuel left! One irritation is that the charging seems to occasionally reset itself. I am using the granny charger plugged into a dedicated 3 pin plug...
  6. General Mitsubishi EV Discussion
    I’ve been using a normal domestic socket for charging during the day inside the garage without any extension leads. It takes nearly 5 hours. If I change tariff and charge overnight to take advantage of the 4-hour cheap rate, how can I time it? Would it be safer to have a proper charging...
  7. Kia Niro
    Hi all I have an e-Niro and the UVO app. I also have a home wall charger - but the wall charger is not smart (6 years old) and doesn’t have an app in itself to tell me how much electricity was used to charge the car (or how much it cost). Is there a way on UVO or on the car itself to figure...
  8. Kia Niro
    I have a 2021 eNiro on order and hoping it turns up Oct/November as a bit of prep I have been looking at home charging options. Would love to hear about others experiences what’s good etc. i am also interested in bidirectional charging but can‘t see if that is dependant on the car also. Any...
  9. General Charging Discussion
    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...
  10. General Charging Discussion
    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 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...

    Having bought a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV a little while ago, now that it's time to replace my wife's car a Nissan Tekra EV will arrive next week and it's time to think through the case for a 7kW charger! However, we have a second home in a remote rural location, which is on an Economy 7...
  13. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Good evening fellow GTE owners, Newby post here so apologies if I’m going over old ground, but I recently purchased a 16 plate GTE that has 8.5k miles on it. My round trip is 70 miles to and from work and so far I’m loving the car, albeit a couple of things I’m hoping people can advise on...

    I'm about to get an Ioniq, and a podpoint charger installed at home. The problem is where to put the charger. In the obvious place, it would be easy to use and close to where it's needed. However, this would result in the cable lying across the main way up to the house door. I'm worried that...

  17. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I've seen slow chrging during the hot weather car was at 31 degress and charging was limited to 1.4Kw rather than the 3.4K the car can accept any one else seen similar behaviour?
  18. Nissan Leaf40
    So its 3am and I am awake and therefore check my Leaf is charging and the cost on Economy 7 (as every "sane" person would of course), which is 55p an hour at ~6.5kW, 92% and about 1.5 hours to go - all pretty much as expected. My charging protocol is plug in every night regardless of whether...

    Hey there, I am doing a quick poll to find out how did you buy your home EV charger? If there are any other channels that you have used that I haven't mentioned please share with us.

    Summary - Starting Remote Climate Control overrides the timer for battery charge and starts the battery charging at full cost outside Economy 7 hours? Updated (thanks to John Collinson): If you have "Full Charge Has Priority" turned on in your "Charge Timer" settings. I have Economy 7 and have...
