Totally new to EVs.
I have recently taken delivery of a Mercedes GLA 250e hybrid which I charge with a granny lead from a 13A socket. The battery size is 15.75 kWh.
Five days a week I run the battery from full to empty.
Takes about five hours to charge from empty.
I want to take advantage of an...
I picked up my I-Pace last week and I'm loving it!
I've just got a domestic 3 pin plug type 2 to charge it for a while until I get my proper home charger.
It's a Masterplug Type 2 2.3kw charger.
It seems to charge for a few seconds then click off then another few seconds later it clicks and...
Hi, only had my IONIQ 5 for a few weeks so excuse my ignorance:
I have a Wallbox 7kw charger and it works fine so no problem with my electric supply.
Thought I would try the portable "granny" cable for when I am away from home and have no access to a proper charger.
I plug it into a domestic...
Hey there. New to the forum - sorry if this has been discussed before (couldn't find anything). I have a BMW i3 which I mostly charge using a granny cable except on long journeys. I am planning a trip to France in the summer and will be mostly staying at a friend's house which is in the middle...
Hi, newbie electric car user :0). Any recommendations on the best way to protect cables from being chewed whilst in use outside. Charger is plugged in inside garage, granny charger module on floor inside the garage , yellow charging cable runs under the garage door along the drive to the car...
about a month ago i bought a 13a (well what I thought was 13a) Duosida Granny Cable of an irish selling site - came through with a 13a 3 pin plug on , used it a few times and thought 'that plug gets quite hot' but then I thought well it is 10amps at the end of the day and it has been on a while...
I wrote the following to Renault Customer Services:
"I have just bought a 2011 Renault Kangoo ZE. I charge it each night using an occasional usage charging cord (aka “granny cable”) plugged into a standard 13 amp domestic socket. To avoid wear and tear on my charger I have installed it in a...
Original Renault Zoe 3-pin domestic socket charging cable (Granny lead cable).
Only used twice since owning it.
In working order.
Bought from Renault official website.
Genuine reason for selling due to infrequent use of the cable.
PM if interested.
I'm sorry, this queston has probably already been asked but I have a Renault Zoe (2014) and when I use a granny cable, it either trips the RDC in the fusebox, or the port on the car lashes red and tells me to "Check Charging Station". I have used two different cables now so that can't be be...
I noticed yesterday that despite my car being parking in the shade the 13A 3-pin plug charging cable (aka granny cable) kept disconnecting. My app and the car said it was connected but not charging. I reset the black box a few times but it kept doing it. Anyone else had this problem?
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...
P/xing my zoe for a kia soul and so no longer need the granny charging cable - only used a handful of times, but did come in handy when I needed it!
Looking for £275 collected from Reading or West London, or £285 posted.
I have a problem with my zoe. I purchased a granny cable from Amazon and everyone online said it works fine with the zoe.
But I can't get mine to stay charging. It starts happily but then cuts off after it gains a single percentage. I have to keep going into the app and restarting...

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.
