    I am just about to get a company PHEV Hyundai Tuscon. My company have said they will put in an electric charging point at my home and the cost of the point and also the charging (which will be on a seperate meter) will be charged back directly to my company. I have had many company cars but not...

    I’ve just had a call from a frustrated friend who has a home charging fault. Both their 3.6kW PodPoint and the 3-pin plug are tripping circuit breakers (two different circuits). Sometimes it’s immediately after plugging in and sometimes it’s later after the car has mostly charged. PodPoint...

    Installed about 6+ years ago, my Polar charger has stopped charging. There is a red warning triangle on the screen, so it is receiving power from the house. BP does not want to know unless I will replace. He did suggest switch off at fuse fore 30 mins and then back on - and try it - but no luck...

    Did anyone observe the TV advert (on Sky) projecting EDF’s profile in the sphere of EV adoption. Their new offering apparently came online earlier this week. They will lease you an EV, install you a charge-point (very cheaply) and give you an off-peak electricity rate for EV Charging. It’s a...

    I am new to the EV scene. Just recently had a Rolec type 2,7.2kW, 5m tethered charger installed in my driveway but the cable is too short. What are the best options for me to change it to a 10m type 2 tethered cable? I got a quote from the company that installed it and it’s £200, which I find...

    Hi I've just got a 30kWh Nissan Leaf (thanks to this forum!). It's my first EV so now getting a home charge point installed. I was wondering if anyone thinks it's worth paying around £125 extra to get a smart/communicating unit? Is it useful at all? I'd initially thought there would be no...

    Hi, I’m planning to get solar panels fitted at the same time as buying my EV. My quote includes PV panels, battery and diverted for heating hot water. If I add a home charging station for my EV, does it matter which type with regard to charging using the solar? I would be able to charge for a...

    I am thinking of getting Solar installed to compliment my Leaf. However I spent more.time during the day at work than I do at home so I am not sure how much it would be used. Also the batteries that are on offer are a teeny capacity so are they worth it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, Since taking delivery of my BMW 330e a few months ago I have been relying on plugging the granny charger into a 13A socket in the garage and running the charging cable out under the garage door. I then leave the charging plug tucked away in the corner of the driveway when I go out. With...

    I've had a Leaf for over a year and love it. As part of the initial deal with Nissan, they installed a 3kw home charging unit, which I use overnight about twice a week. I would have gone for a 6kw charger if I'd known more about chargers then, but Podpoint now want over £700 to upgrade, so I...

  20. General Nissan EV Discussion
    In the past few days, trawling through this forum, I am certain that one member posted that recently Nissan issued an update to the software and that now, with his pod point, he is now able to use his Leaf 2 battery to power his home at night. I've tried to find that post again today but cant...
