    Hi all, I'm in Ireland expecting to take delivery of an eNiro in a few weeks. The dealer has told myself and a number of other eNiro customers that Kia won't be supplying a granny cable with the car because there's been problems with the units and/or plugs melting. They've said Nissan, Hyundai...

    Hi I have a friend who is just buying a new Leaf with type 2 charging. He has a journey to Devon to make where he will stop the night with relatives. If I loan him my Granny cable for the Zoe is it any use to him? Thanks for your advice.
