  1. Using the wrong card

    General Charging Discussion
    I couldn't get my charge to stop at an Ecotricity rapid today. Pressed the stop charging button then presented my Ecotricity card but it just rejected it and went back to the charging screen. I retried several times. The screen said it needed the same card that started the session. After a...
