    How's people's experiences with PodPoint? We logged a problem in mid February which, after much to-ing and fro-ing, they agreed was covered by the warranty. We've now had 4 appointments cancelled by them with the next one scheduled for 13th April. Fortunately we don't rely it but as it only...

    Hi, My mother has had the above car since August last year and until January it has been fine but now after 3 charges on the podpoint it refuses to charge until we take it to a municipal charging station and charge it, after that it will charge on the pod point another 3 times then it will...

    Hi, My brother had a Pod Point Solo 3 installed at his house yesterday, he plugged it into his car Mercedes EQA yesterday and is only getting 2.2kw charging speed. We called Pod Point and then said from there side everything is fit correctly and to check with our electric supplier to see if...

    Hi I try to regularly use free chargers by pod point. They quote 22kw but on my Audi app it shows 10.5kw. Is this normal? Does podpoint limit the output?
  5. Home Charging Installation
    Well, when I say satisfaction it's a bit of a mixed bag. The process of sending adequate photos for their purposes was hugely time consuming and stressful because of their limit on the number of pictures and the overall size in terns of MBs. 6 goes and they finally accepted enough pictures of...

    Hi, I’ve had a POD Point Solo charger for 3.5 years and it’s now developed a charging fault. The issue is it often won’t connect to my i3, and sometimes if it does connect the charge fails part way through. I’ve found turning it off for a while sometimes works to get it to connect again but...

    Hello everyone, first post on here after a few weeks of lurking. I need some advice, I have recently received my Seat Mii electric (great car BTW) and as part of the lease agreement I am paying a bit extra for the installation of a Pod Point 7kw charger. The issue is, the installation team...

    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...

    So I've just bought a couple second hand pod point chargers, both look to be able to charge upto 22kw on 3 phase, I don't know a great deal about them, I intend to sell them for a profit. One is type 2 un tethered, the other is type 2 tethered. And idea what they are worth? Would be nice to see...

    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...

    I had a Pod Point Solo installed back in early March, ready for my new LEAF. The car was then delayed due to some virus thingy, and I only picked it up on Tuesday (1 Sep). My first trial charge yesterday (for both car and charger) ended up with the Pod Point tripping out internally very shortly...
  13. Renault ZOE
    Hi there, I'm about to pull the trigger on a new ZE50 Iconic without CCS and wanted to check people's experiences with Pod Point 7kw charging issues. I've seen a few older posts highlighting problems here and would be great to know if this is still prevalent on ZE50? TL;DR we're not blessed...

    Hello, first post here. I have signed up to Pod Point for a home charger and had an email saying they could not run cables under floor through my lounge next to existing cables due to regs. The existing cables are HDMI cables and coax/sky. Does this sound right - it seemed odd to me and I'm...

    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...

    I took some close up photos of the internals of my Pod Point charger today as I was wondering what type of MCU was used with a potential idea of writing some custom software to implement hooking in for charge timing etc. (Not going to happen now). Thought some people here might like them. The...

  18. General BMW EV Discussion
    Hi all, First post here. I’ve recently bought a 330e which I’m really pleased with. I’ve had a Pod-Point 7kW tethered charge point installed in my garage and also use the BMW Digital Charging Service to set up pre-conditioning. Both of these tell me how many kWh of electricity I have used while...

    Hi folks, I’m picking up my used Renault Zoe 20 this week and am very excited :)) I’m selecting a home charger and think I’m leaning towards the Pod Point. I was wondering if anyone had purchased or had any views on whether paying for the data collection feature on the BP Chargemaster premium...

    I have just bought a used Nissan Leaf (2013 model). It came with a 13 amp charger for home use, which is easy, but no other cable. Thinking I might need to charge at a public chargepoint, I bought a Type 2 to Type 1 cable for £125. The Type 1 end fits the car, but I just tried to charge at a...
