    General Charging Discussion
    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 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.

  8. Faulty Pod point home charger
