  1. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi all, already found a lot of helpful stuff on this thread so seemed like the best place to ask some advice I recently got a 2016 24kwh leaf and I am panicking it was a big mistake (but I hope not bcs I love it!!) My research suggested I could get up to 100-120 miles out of a charge, which...

    Hi, New on this forum, read a lot of cool stuff. Except too much stuff written in some weird imperial units... miles... I've been searching (and asked my dealership) about how to preserve the battery best. I've read tons of stuff about Tesla's and their battery management and suggestions to...

    Hi, Covid dependent, we're taking our Leaf to the Vandee mid west France in Summer. We are booked on Portsmouth to St Malo ferry and it's an easy 160 miles down to our campsite. I have got Chargemap and Plug Surf all and cards. Has anyone got any tips / advice for a stress free continental...

    I was just looking at electric planes, and the Pipistrel Velis Electro came up as having just been certified in Europe. This plane is from Slovenia, but if you look at the photo of the charging port, you'll notice it's using the Chinese GB/T DC connector rather than CCS or Chademo. I'm a bit...

    Evening everyone, ive had my ZS EV for a couple of weeks now and have just made the discovery that i need to buy my own Type 2 to Type 2 cable to use some public chargers. Can anyone recommend a place to order one of these cables as ive never heard of any of the websites im seeing selling these...

    Hi, I'm a newbie about EVs and I'm here to ask for a clarification. After reading some docs about EVs, I learned that there are 4 different charging modes, where each of them specifies voltage and current values during EV charging (so, indirectly, the absorbed power). For example, I read that...

    Hello! I have a c-zero that won’t take ac-charging. The 12v battery is charging and I don’t have any error codes. Dc-charging works. Charing indicator flashes inside the car. Video from my car

    Frustrating time last Friday in the Peak District. Needed a fast charge (Chademo for Leaf) in an area with few charge facilities. Buxton Morrison’s Genie Point is nearest said my Zap app - but not working 2 weeks ago. Set up app, had to put in £10 credit before trying it out. Still bust. Phoned...

    Hi, Looking for journey planning/charging advice for a recent trip. Relatively new to our EV (40Kw Leaf, Dec 2019) and only done a couple of longer trips; only 2 rapid charges total so far (both on Polar, both got stuck)! We're off to Pwllheli from Loughborough (170 miles) end of the month and...

    Looks like Zap-Map will be shortly rolling out paying for (and presumably starting and stopping) charges via their app. Will be interesting to see which networks they support, as it could potentially drastically reduce the number of apps needed. I had an email notifying me of new T&Cs which...
  15. Renault ZOE
    When i got my 2013 Zoe about a moth ago I have my suspicions that the TCU is not working as it should I cannot remember fully but the charging schedules seemed greyed out i think and online services like weather etc kept saying please try later and the bars said connected i think but the signal...
  16. Kia Niro
    Hey guys, I’ve just seen on Bjørn’s channel there is a new BMS update for the Kona and E-Niro that apparently is creating a better charging curve to 80%, has anyone got this yet? I get my new E-Niro next Tuesday so wondering if it might be worth speaking to the dealer to get the update installed...

    Can my 2013 zoe us a street charger if the charger features CCS? I note that the CCS socket looks exactly the same as a type 2 cable except for the 2 extra pins at the bottom , so can the supplied zoe street charging cable in the boot fit into the ccs socket on the street charger side or will it...

    My Fiat 500e has been in storage for around a year and is unsurprisingly dead. It won’t charge when plugged into the Level 1 charger. Will it charge if I were to take it to a Level 2 charger, or is it completely dead? Maybe jumpstart the smaller battery? Is the main battery replaceable or would...

    It seems that roughly half of Ionity’s UK devices are out of service. I was reading up on Maingau and I thought I’d check Zap Map to see where Ionity are sited and how likely I was to want to use one of their chargers. Lots of red statuses. Is anyone using them regularly? Is it inconvenient...
