  1. Vauxhall/Opel Corsa-e/Mokka-e
    Hey all, Hopefully, another owner of a Corsa-e/Mokka-e can explain this one for me because I feel like I'm being an idiot. I have my Mokka-e set to delay charging until later in the evening. Now, to the best of my knowledge, in order to use this I simply plug in the cable, then press the button...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Hi everyone, I have an EV on order and I am looking at how best to fit the dashcam and the associated battery packs. For context, it's a Blackvue setup with the add-on battery packs (a few of them) to avoid running down the built-in 12v battery over long periods. In my current ICE vehicle I use...
  3. General Charging Discussion
    Hi. I just wanted to let people know about an emerging charging issue with E-208. I have struggled to find information about it online. I'm somewhat an expert now because I have had a 69 plate E208 and a 20 plate E208 which have both had the same fault. Both occured around 10-12k miles. The...

  5. General Charging Discussion
    Dear forum users, I've spent the last few weeks/months reading some of the useful information in this forum about the experiences you have all had with charging, specifically public charging. Some years ago I designed and built a dynamic EV charging module which was integrated into a cable and...
  6. General Charging Discussion
    Hi All I'm thinking about getting a second type 2 charging cable (a short one for home use, while the one that came with the car will be kept in the car and reserved for charging out and about). Can anyone recommend a supplier of good quality ones? Perhaps one you have purchased from yourself...

  8. General Charging Discussion
    Hi, Our 2016 Zoe is regularly failing to charge to 100%. When this happens it is displaying a message about checking the connection with the wall unit. Initially we thought it to be an issue with the car (as had a similar issue that resulted in a repair under warranty, but raised at last...

    Hello fellow EV owners, students at UC Berkeley are trying to evaluate an add-on, eco-friendly car wash service at charging stations to help you make the most of your time while you charge your car. We would really appreciate it if you could take 5 minutes to respond to our survey to help us...
  10. General Charging Discussion
    Hi, for my university senior project I'm working with a few other students do find an answer to this question. It is important with the Cleans Cars 2030 amendment to begin energy models ASAP (We’re based in WA state US). To do so, times of charging, length of charging, driving distance, etc...
  11. Charging Locations
    The council are proposing to "consolidate" two taxi ranks. The freed up one will become four spaces with charging points. The consultation is here: https://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/info/38/consultations/1019/consultation_on_taxi_ranks_near_dunstable_high_street However the only...
  12. General Charging Discussion
    Hello everyone I’m new here and I’m an owner of a Toyota Coms here in Japan. This mini ev car equipped with a 72v Pb battery (need to think how to replace it with something more efficient), can be charged only through the 100v home socket. The problem now is that I cannot use any charging point...
  13. Home Charging Installation
    Hey All, I'm hoping to join the EV club, looking to switch from my 30mpg focus ST. My garden is roughly 7 meters in length with 2 personal spaces backing onto the end. Do they need to be installed against the house or dug underground and installed on a post? Ideally I don't want to run a 10m...
  14. First Generation Ioniq
    This is more of a - 'did I understood this correctly post rather than a question'. New to EV/Ioniq and only used the local Pod point charger in nearby Tesco about three times. Over the weekend, when I plugged in the charge, did my shopping and came back. There was this podcast I was listening...

    Channel 4 Dispatches wants to hear from you! We would like to hear your stories about your experiences with charging stations in the UK. What is the charging point you know of that has been out of service for the longest time? Have you ever run out of charge due to a charging station not...
  16. General Charging Discussion
    I picked up my brand new Mazda MX-30 yesterday, and went to charge it for the first time today. I tried to plug in the charger plug in to the car, but it won't lock. I initially thought it was the different charger points I went to, but after speaking to another EV owner, and him having a look...
  17. General EV Discussion
    Hello all! First post here, couldn't find this topic discussed specifically but apologies if I missed it! I'm planning a 2,000 mile round trip in my Zoe with almost entirely motorway driving. That go me thinking how to reduce the aggregate driving and charging time? The question is: on long...
  18. First Generation Ioniq
    I am picking up an used Ioniq over the weekend and at least until our driving gets to normal level (which doesn't look to be until Spring of next year), I am looking to not install a home charger. With the driving we are currently doing, we should be ok with charging the car no more than twice a...
  19. General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    So I just picked up my new e-C4 on Monday (for which there are still no options on this site...). Liking it so far but I'm a bit baffled by the deferred charging. I've read a few other posts and I can see a lot of Stellantis (not PSA anymore!) cars have the same issue of not having an end time...
