    Hello everybody, We've just taken delivery of our first EV, an ex-demo Renault Zoe as a replacement for a Clio. So far very happy with it, although getting used to not having a clutch has been a shock for the SO 🙂 We live just outside Bristol and had a Pod Point Solo fitted last week so we're...
  2. Tesla Model 3
    I have a tethered 7kw Pod Point charger at home which used to charge my Model 3 at 7kw as soon as I plugged it in. A few times recently, when I plug it in, the charge rate shows at 4kw in the Tesla app and 16A on the charging screen in the car instead of 7kw/30A. I've tried disconnecting the...

    Hi everyone. How does the Keylock accessory work? I am interested in the tethered version of the Solo charger. With the keylock installed, do you need to keep the key inserted in order to keep the Solo unlocked for charging? Or, does it work just like a simple door lock whereby you can...
  4. Home Charging Installation
    We have a Hyundai Ioniq (full electric) on order (due to arrive 12th April), and have paid for a pod point and filled out the required forms I have a question regarding the cabling as it’s quite unclear in the documentation. We are in a new build property and have been assured by the developer...

    SEAT Mii arriving in Autumn. Which charger do folk recommend and what should I be paying for charger and installation after grant reduction? Zappi quoted for ÂŁ710 or Pod Point at ÂŁ565 both 7kw tethered. Thoughts, Thanks.

    Back in November I used an Ohme cable at a Pod Point at Tesco and it got stuck as the Pod Point wouldn't release it even though I had cancelled charging in the Ohme app. I had to call PodPoint and they sent out an engineer who had to power down the Pod Point to release the cable. I had used the...

    Hi, I'm sure this has been discussed many times and the research has already been done. I've upgraded to a new Nissan leaf and I need to change my connector from a Type 1 to a Type 2. How is the best (and cheapest!) way of doing this. My neighbour is a qualified electrician and has...

    I've ordered my Pod Point and they have come back to me stating that my garage consumer unit is only Type AC RCD protected (pictured), and they require Type A be installed before they will come to fit the Pod Point. I'm not sure if they mean the main breaker and/or the RCCBs. Can anybody please...

    Dear all, I've just ordered my first BEV via a salary sacrifice lease scheme at work. It seemed very affordable and included installation of a 7kW home-charger (Pod-Point). I signed on the dotted line and was delighted when Pod-Point contacted me to sort out OLEV grant and installation. I...

    Hi. We have a new build with a detached garage with its own fuse board that comes from the main fuse board in the house. The garage is currently supplied off a 40 amp fuse in the main board but can be increased to 50 amp. Can an EV wall charger be wired to this fuse box in the garage or does it...
  11. General BMW EV Discussion
    I have recently purchased a BMW 330e and my experience so far with pod point has been the worst. In my workplace we have 4 charging stations and I have tried all 4 of them with no success. When I plug my car the light on the unit turns red, as if something is wrong. My first though was that...

    Hi All Im having a 7kw Pod Point installed in 2 weeks and was wondering if anyone has experience of what they do with the cable from the electricity meter to outside. Im hoping that they will drill through the wall close to my meter to the outside then fix the Pod Point on the wall outside. My...

    I'm heading up to N Norfolk next weekend in my Zoe and have noticed that on ZapMap there are posts about both Felbrigg and Sheringham Park Pod Point chargers saying they are incompatible with Zoes. I had a problem at Minsmere Pod Point this week with a Check Charging Post error in the car and no...
  14. General Nissan EV Discussion
    Just thought someone might be able to help with this one. I have had a 7Kw home charger on my house for a couple of years but up until recently I have only ever used it to top up friends cars. Now I have my own car I was hoping to use it regularly. However I have a problem with my Pod Point that...
