  2. General Volkswagen EV Forum
    Hi All After some help please - have had an XC90 mild hybrid for a couple of years, which when purchasing, I had a PodPoint SOLO2 installed at home. All works perfectly…… Today I took delivery of a VW eTransporter which I had assumed I could simply plug into the PP Solo and wait 11hrs for it...
  3. General Charging Discussion
    We had been having issues charging our Renault ZOE (16 plate) with our PodPoint Solo smart home charger (new install earlier this year)... Typically, a night charge... and the car would start charging normally, but at about 2hours (sometimes less, sometimes more) it would just stop (no error...
  4. General Mercedes EV Discussion
    Hi there, we've just had a Pod Point Home 7kw home charger fitted . Previously we were charging using a 13a plug socket and it would take approximately 4.5 hours to charge the battery from half to full on a 3.7kw setting. We tried the PP charger for the same half to full charge and it took the...

  6. General Charging Discussion
    Hi there, New and first post. Have just placed an order for a VW id.3, which hopefully will be delivered in a couple of months. VW pushed us towards a podpoint, but home chargers are a murky world so any help or advice would be great! Have seen the zappi, EASEE and hypervolt but there's...
  7. General Groupe Stellantis EV Discussion
    So I just picked up my new e-C4 on Monday (for which there are still no options on this site...). Liking it so far but I'm a bit baffled by the deferred charging. I've read a few other posts and I can see a lot of Stellantis (not PSA anymore!) cars have the same issue of not having an end time...
  8. General Charging Discussion
    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...
  9. Volkswagen ID.3
    We’ve just bought and received our ID3 and had a Pod-Point installed. We are about to go into Octopus Agile for cheaper night time charging. How do I set up smart charging to only charge in the middle of the night rather in peak hours? I can’t figure it out on either my Pod-Point or the ID3.
  10. General EV Discussion
    As per this thread, I have had a bit of a saga getting my Podpoint (and smart meter, for that matter) installed and working. Everything is now working and I wanted to thank the good people of this forum for their advice and help. Loving my EV!
  11. General Charging Discussion
    Finally had a smart meter installed by Octopus: timing would have been perfect as the EV arrived three days ago and I've been poised to switch to Go tariff. Unfortunately the electrician who installed it couldn't get it to "commission", despite the unit having an aerial. He was a very pleasant...
  12. Jaguar I-PACE
    A nice man with a lorry turned up this evening, delivering my NHS Fleet Solution iPace S lease car. No handover or paperwork (Covid precautions) but I had test driven one and read-up beforehand so was almost glad to be left to it. Took the car for a spin to Rhossili for sunset; fantastically...
  13. General Charging Discussion
    Following on from this thread, in which I received lots of helpful advice (culminating in me digging a trench and Sparky laying chunky armoured to outbuildings), things progressed yesterday: A Podpoint pair travelled from Bristol (to my location west of Swansea) to install my charger. They...
  14. General Charging Discussion
    Hi everyone, I’m getting a home charge point installed on Tuesday and it’s going to go on the front of the house, next to the front door. I went for the tethered option as I suspect when I get my car I won’t fancy pulling the cable out from the boot each time. I went for the standard length...
  15. General Charging Discussion
    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...
  16. General Charging Discussion
    I'm interested in optimising the use of off peak juice in charging my LEAF. I'm headed for Octopus Agile once they get a SMETS2 meter in, but to make best use of this something like the Homepage - Ohme would be required. However, at present, I've got a PodPoint tethered charger at home, and I...
  17. General Charging Discussion
    Hi My pod point failed on Monday night. Tuesday at 8.30 I rang to report. 4 days and 7 phone calls later I've been told that it will be another week before someone can fix it - so 9 days without charge! Copying @podpoint in to see if there any way to speed things up. I can drive to a point...
  18. Charging Locations
    The charger at Bridlington's Palace car park has been playing up since dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Side B is almost never working, you can phone in and they'll reset it, but if seems to go down again within an hour or two. And it's pretty busy, being in that coastal chargepoint desert. Come on...
  19. General Charging Discussion
    Post deleted. I was asking questions about the supply needed but it appears to have been sorted, and the charger install is going ahead.
  20. Second Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF40 & LEAF62)
    Hi all I'm a happy Leaf 2.zero owner from April 2018. Wife does 90 miles a day. Recently we had some episodes of waking up to a partially charged car. On the first few occasions I thought I hadn't plugged the car in properly, or perhaps had hit the remove plug button instead of car lock button...
