  1. Renault ZOE
    Hi, Do you guys think that a Tesla Wall Charger Gen 3 would be a good choice for home charging for my R90 22kWh Zoe? I'm tempted as I found a few good deals. Is there any advice against it? I would use it at 11kW (3x16A). Thanks in advance!
  2. Home Charging Installation
    Hi, I’m extremely new to the EV thing and hopefully I’ll be taking delivery of a model 3 in the next week. My question is: I’ve ordered one of the gen 3 home chargers and I’ve found out from my electrician that it’ll need an additional pen fault device as it doesn’t have one built in. He’s...
  3. Renault ZOE
    Hi all, looking for some help or if someone has had the same experience... In December our Zoe 40 went in for its 3 year service and had a new 12v battery etc etc. We noticed during this time that the scheduled charge timer had stopped working and so went through the rlink store and 'bought'...
  4. Kia Niro
    The range of my Kia e-Niro 3 which was new in Sept 2021, was stated as 282 and actually reached 288 a few times. I realise that it will drop in cold weather in winter but it has been going down steadily to 260, then 253 and now 236. The dealer says there is nothing wrong (presumably no cells are...

    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.

    Hi, Has anyone noticed how noisy there Home meter is when charging there EV ? Our metre is roughly about 35 years old and we are in the process of trying to get British Gas out to replace it for a smart metre (and upgrade the tail end) but after 3 cancellations it is proving difficult (they say...
  7. Home Charging Installation
    Hello, I'm expecting to collect my Tesla M3 LR (UK) in March with a 22 plate, very excited but I still have issues with the charging setup at home (UK). I own a semi-detached house (no driveway, area marked in red in the attachment, two-car parking space) that has an open barn (wooden) garage...
  8. General Skoda EV Discussions
    Hello all, I'm hoping there is a Skoda wizard amongst us. I have the middle 'error' light showing on the 3-pin plug charging cable when I plug into, you guessed it, a 3-pin plug. Any ideas what it relates to and how to clear it? She charges fine from a proper charger on a Tesco car par with the...

    Delayed charging/overnight is only working intermittently with 7kw Podpoint charger. Sometimes it charges fully from 00.30 sometimes it charges for an hour then stops, other times it does charge at all. Why does this happen? My electricity is supplied by Scottish Power.
  10. Renault ZOE
    Hi I’ve owned several EVs and had my Ohme smart charger for a year now with no problems. Just got a Zoe and it won’t charge at all on the Ohme charger according to the schedule. It knows it’s plugged into the Ohme and there are no errors I can see but Ohme doesn’t deliver any charge at all and...
  11. MG5
    I bought an ex-demo MG5 in March as my first EV and have been really pleased. But recently we have had an issue where we get a "Connected, uncharged" error message when we try to use our 3-pin granny charger at home. We think it might be related to some work we had to do extended power and...

  14. Ice Breakers
    Hi. I'm looking to order my first EV, a Skoda Enyaq, to replace my current lease car. I don't have a drive but am confident I can make it work with the local public charging infrastructure. I will, however, need to a 3-pin plug for emergencies or topping up at other people's houses. The...
  15. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
