    Soon to take delivery of my first EV and I'm looking to get a home charger installed in or outside our garage. The garage has its own power supply coming in, its own meter and small consumer unit, all separate from the house so I don't think there should be an issue there. It is currently turned...
  2. Home Charging Installation
    Hi, I'm talking to a few electricians about fitting a home charger and have decided that, because of the complicated nature of the cable run, I will get my usual handy man to run the cable or run a draw chord in advance of the electricians coming to fit the charger - this should hopefully end...

    I have an e-Niro and I've done 458 miles since getting the car, with the car reporting an average efficiency of 3.6 mi/kWh. That means it's used about 127 kWh. However, my Rolec 7.4kW A/C charge point says I've used 163 kWh, meaning 28% of the electricity being used is lost. Does this sound...

    I’ve have a home Podpoint installed for the the last years, and all is fine, but recently, although it still charges my Zoe, the Podpoint app on my phone isn’t showing me the charges I’ve done at home. It shows charges on public charge points, but none at home. Any ideas why not?
