  1. London Borough of Barnet, additional chargers, not Source London

    Charging Locations
    It looks like London Borough of Barnet have arranged for more chargers to be installed, but they're not sending any more money in the direction of Source London, who appear to be using their existing spots as parking bays for their rental fleet, having priced out most private ev drivers. It...
  2. Pod-Point / BMW Digital Charging Service stats differences

    General BMW EV Discussion
    Hi all, First post here. I’ve recently bought a 330e which I’m really pleased with.

  8. I think I've found a set of chargers worse than Camden's

    Charging Locations
    Step forwards, Chiltern Railways, and your impressive fleet of Pod-Points: Today's task was simple. Park the car at a station, put the car on charge, and get on the train. Stoke Mandeville station: Charger unpowered. Aylesbury station: Charger unpowered Aylesbury Vale Parkway station: Charger...
