  1. Baldrick's Home Charger Master Sheet

    General Charging Discussion
    I had a cunning plan (y). I'm looking for a charger for my first EV so decided to put together a master sheet with all the major chargers available on it. Thought I'd share it with you in case it's useful. (This is for the UK FYI) The Google Sheets link for it is here (I've created built in...

  3. Just joined...

    Ice Breakers
    Hi all, Just joined, really to try and read up and learn more about the complexities of the public charging network(s). I've owned several Prius's, the last one being a PHEV I owned for nearly five years (which averaged around 140 mpg during that time), but I never bothered to charge from a...

  5. Nissan "free" chargers vs Scotland Energy Saving Trust?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    It seems official Nissan Dealers currently offer a "free" home charger (EVSE), for both new cars and for second hand cars. I assume Nissan's offer takes advantage of the £500 Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) grant, so the actual cost to Nissan is fairly small. Do they give you a choice...
  6. Kia EVSE Question

    General Kia EV Discussion
    Hiya all! Just brought home my 2017 Kia Optima PHEV yesterday afternoon and plugged in the EVSE and I need an education... The lights on the box all flash on at the point I plug it into the garage wall socket, but... then immediately goes to flashing the power light continuously. I checked the...
  7. Wanted EVSE (granny lead) for Renault Zoe

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    If you've got a second-hand plug-in charge lead for a Renault Zoe, I'd be interested in relieving you of it for a reasonable sum. I'm based in Cambridge, but don't mind travelling a little for it, or paying for a courier. Thanks in advance.
  8. Sold OpenEVSE and spare screen

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    Is anyone interested in my old OpenEVSE kit? With a 32A Commando input socket and Type-2 socket output ... I built this originally when I bought my Gen1 Leaf and the dealer "upgraded" me from an EVSE to a Type2 cable (I was too naive to realise what they had done). When I got the Gen2 which...
  9. Anyone tried 12A "Granny" charging?

    General Charging Discussion
    I've just finished building my own 32A capable EVSE, but will be using at 16A until I change cars. However I thought I'd run it as a "Granny" charger for time being and have set it up for 12A. After the first 2hr charge have checked currents and thermal increases of cables, DIN modules and most...
  10. Solar PV diversion to ABL EVSE now progressed

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    I had Solar PV & and ABL Sursum EVSE installed by @Thomas_Newby back in 2015. A few weeks ago I finally got my act together and connected a Raspberry Pi to the RS485 port to control the EVSE's advertised charge to my Outlander. I went through a few iterations involving battery powering a Pi...
  11. EVSE recall?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I had to have the 12V battery replaced in my 30 kWh Tekna (after less than a year, so it should be a warranty item, yet my dealer asked for a deposit). When I brought the car to them, they told me there was a recall for the EVSE cable, but they also said they could not replace it right away...
  12. Which home EVSE for what price?

    General Charging Discussion
    Hi, I'm just about to get and order a home charger for my i3 which isn't due for a few months. Question is, which one? There are a few options available for dramatically different prices. Rolec tethered 32A including locking option - £200 (with current £50 off) PodPoint (untethered) 7kW - not...
  13. DIY 3-phase EVSE; Rundown and advising before moving on

    General Charging Discussion
    Hello all from Turkey! So I've been driving an EV at lease this past 1,5 years and I charge at our offices, which luckily is in an industrial zone so we have plenty of power. When lease began they put in their own EVSE but now lease is about to end so they'll take it away. I'm planning on...
  14. EO Charging unit from Pheonix Works

    General Charging Discussion
    So finally had a proper charge point installed today by those nice folk at The Pheonix Works and thought I would post some feedback on the forum as this seems to be a new unit, I was already talking to them about a charge point but when I saw the new EO Charging option they offer I went for...

  18. Multi-purpose EVSE Extension cable

    General Charging Discussion
    Since getting my new Nissan Leaf I’ve been considering getting an extension lead that will enable me to use the EVSE ‘brick’ charger when the car is too far from a 13a socket. I’ve looked at the options and was all set to purchase a lead from www.industrialextensionleads.co.uk, when I...
  19. EVSE control based on Solar PV output

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    I'm currently developing, I use the term loosely, a solution to turn my EVSE on and off depending on Solar PV generation. I'm doing this using emoncms and node-red and the ready-made WiFi relay that the emoncms guys sell. I have almost all the components and the relay works (click click) but is...
  20. Should I install a charging station or just 240 v outlet?

    General Audi EV Discussion
    Audi provides a 110 v and 240 v plug with their e-trons, which gives owners some options. The charging station is just for looks IMO. My 2 car garage is a typical one, with stuff all over the place. But it is clean enough to have both cars parked inside and a bit of room to get around. So, I was...
