  1. General EV Discussion
    Have a funny feeling I'm going to regret asking this but what the hell... Arrival of my first EV is now on the horizon. I see a lot of effort is put in by the experienced owners here on planning where/when to charge your EV. Using route planners to decide beforehand where you will stop and...
  2. General Tesla Motors Discussion
    Hi all Just recently received my Tesla model Y and it's my first EV so a big change. I have also just recently had a home charger fitted and am currently on a standard tariff (I may switch to a cheaper overnight tariff once I become more familiar with charging, usage, etc). I do a lot of...
  3. Volkswagen e-Golf
    I’m having the EXACT same problem described in this post: https://www.speakev.com/threads/e-golf-not-charging.150838/ In a nutshell, plug in the ‘C’ plug at home from the basic granny charger OR a Tibber charge box. Light pulses green for like 30 seconds, dash indicator shows connected white...
  4. General Charging Discussion
    Hello, I have a problem with my BMW i3. I have CCS type 1, but I want to buy adapter to CCS type 2, because most of charging stations in my country don't have CCS type 1 plug. And here's my question - can I charge my car with 50 kW charger using this adapter?
  5. General EV Discussion
    I am working on a design project for an EV charger manufacturer in the UK and have created this survey for research on opinions of EV users. It only takes a minute to complete, and if you are an Electric Vehicle user it would be incredibly useful in the research phase of the project. Please use...

    Original article on batterydesign website Personal Medium Page Types of EV charging connectors classified by type, AC/DC, power, Voltage, amps, range per Hour, charging time (for 60kW EV) This is OC I was fascinated by the different charging connectors but not a complete overview. Type of AC...
  7. General Charging Discussion
    Now the nail has firmly been hammered into the coffin of Bonnet *(with the exception of those who have shed loads of referrals or banked units), I'd like to present what seems to be the next best thing for cheaper charging. I saw it posted here and the Bonnet thread was kinda hijacked with talk...
  8. Home Charging Installation
    Hello, my wallbox tethered charger stopped charging the car recently, and I’ve opened it up to have a look. There is a small White cable free inside the unit which can’t be right. It’s coming from the cable which connects to the car. I’m sure this is the problem but I’ve no idea where to...

    What is the spec of the standard type 2 lead supplied with the Peugeot e-208? I am looking to find out if it’s 7kW 32A or 7kW 16A single phase please?

    Tesla opened some of their Superchargers to non-Tesla vehicles this year, in May I think. Zap-Map refers to them as belonging to the network 'Tesla Public Supercharger', one of which is Trafford Supercharger at The Trafford Centre, Manchester M17 8AA. At this site there are 18 x 250 kW...
  11. Audi Q8 E-Tron SUV
    I bought an Audi Etron SUV (Premium version) in April 2022. The car's charging range spec is 222 miles. I only charge 80% every time to preserve the battery life. In July I had to charge it to 100% for a longer trip. I can only charge it to 140 miles then the charging system stopped. It won't...
  12. General EV Discussion
    Hi, I'm on the Octopus GO May 2021 v1 tariff which is ending in September, I've just had an email from Octopus giving me the rates to renew for a year or go onto a variable rate. As I'm sure many of you are aware, it's quite a jump, I'm just trying to get a feel of what people are paying and...
  13. General EV Discussion
    Hello, Last year, I drove my 2021 Kona Electric from Detroit, to San Francisco, then north to BC and back home to Toronto. I've made an interactive map with all the stops and the charging details: Electric Roadtrip: Kona to California Hopefully it's educational for people who still don't...
  14. Renault Twizy
    Hello I live in Barbados and have just acquired a 2020 Twizy from South Korea for cheap with only 43km on the clock, so though "why not"; not arrived here yet but it is on the boat as I write. South Korea has 220v 60hz mains power - Barbados standard mains is 115v 50hz (we have in some houses...
  15. General Charging Discussion
    I would like to ask the community if they have any advice, tips, or a perfect solution for the problem of charging a hybrid EV at an apartment complex that has no EV charging station. In the near future, I will be purchasing (most likely) a Prius Prime, a newer model as I will be driving a long...
  16. Home Charging Installation
    We are currently installing a Solar PV system with a Fronius inverter and smart meter. As part of the installation, we are putting in a Fronius Wattpilot Home 11J for car charging. This offers a standard type 2 socket but with a number of clever features. If you search for Wattpilot you will...
  17. Peugeot e208
    My Peugeot e-208 has recently gone over 10k and I've just started getting interrupted charge sessions. At first it started on the 7 kW home charger but I had it happen whilst on holiday in Scotland using ChargePlace Scotland 7kW charging and also a 50kW Instavolt charger. The problem appears to...

    Just gauging interest on this idea. Many people find themselves in the situation where they need to replace the tethered cable on their home charge point. But what happens to the old tethered cable once removed? What I am proposing is the following: With an order of a tethered cable from...

    We've had the same 3 colours on offer at EVCables for a few years now, namely Black, Green and Blue. Although popular, we want to ask the community if these original colour choices are still valid. We trialled a small batch of yellow cable which was received well, the brightness and visibility...
  20. Other EV Makes and Models
    I bought this (US Based) 2015 Smart ED used, so there is still a lot I don't know. The biggest question I have is about charging. No matter whether at home or at a commercial charger, I can only charge at 3kw; so I assume this is a limitation of the vehicle. Is there an upgrade I can make to...
