    Thank you to all the volunteers for an interview! Although I will not be able to respond to everyone as the amount of support and willingness to be interviewed has exceeded my expectation/budget! That said, I will keep the names of each volunteer that did not hear from me and we will put you...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Hi all. Wondered if anyone could shed light on an issue I've been encountering with my 2021 Hyundai Ioniq EV. I have found that at every slow public charging point (supermarket or other 7kw/11kw/22kw) that my charging speed gets bumped down when someone else plugs in to the same post / box I'm...
  3. General Charging Discussion
    Dear forum users, I've spent the last few weeks/months reading some of the useful information in this forum about the experiences you have all had with charging, specifically public charging. Some years ago I designed and built a dynamic EV charging module which was integrated into a cable and...

  6. General Charging Discussion
    Hello everyone, I am a 4th year Product Design Engineer at the University of Strathclyde and for my dissertation this year I am researching into how to improve the EV charging infrastructure and designing a new concept to improve on the current models. I have created a small survey asking...
  7. General EV Discussion
    I know how the idea of travelling right now seems to some, but I'm looking at my collection of charge apps and realising that I have absolutely no confidence in my little 22 kWh Zoe to drive outside of the UK. Which is a shame, because this car is much more enjoyable to drive than my old VW up...
  8. General EV Discussion
    I'm a student at the Royal College of Art. I'm currently doing a project about public charging points. Looking for some help from you lovely people. I want to know your experience of using the current public charging point and charging APP. Tell me what information or elements are most...
  9. General EV Discussion
    Hi All, Doing some research for a university project. Would love for you all to give me your opinion on the below. Since owning an EV have you found yourself indulging on coffee and food whilst waiting for the vehicle to charge? Or if not, would an incentive to visit a food/drink...
  10. General EV Discussion
    Hey guys! I was wondering how many of you don't have home charging like me. Since I solely rely on public units, I find that I sometimes have to deliberately go out for the purpose of charging (e.G. before a long trip). Anyone else in a similar situation? How often would you say this happens...
  11. General Charging Discussion
    I got my first EV last week and will mainly be charging at home as I do very low mileage. However, for those occasional road trips I'll obviously be looking to use rapid chargers en route. Everything I've read about public charging seems super positive about the UK's expanding network. A scan...
  12. General Charging Discussion
    It seems that finding and then paying for public charging is a nightmare. Especially as a new EV owner. There are so many different networks, and given none have universal coverage, you end up having to sign up to loads of different accounts / apps / get cards and hold credit with each of them...
  13. BMW i3
    I have recently installed a economy 7 meter at home and set up the intelligent charging online, seems to work perfect, however I see in doing this the public chargers I use now cut out after a short while. Do I have to add ever public charger I may use to the intelligent charging portal, or...
  14. General Charging Discussion
    Hello folks! I'm about to start a long-term rent (1 year minimum) of a brand new BMW i3s. I'm very excited for it! However, my housing situation is that I live in a flat in Berlin, without access to a private parking lot or the like. Thus, I have to park overnight by the roadside, when I would...
  15. General Charging Discussion
    Can I ask why no-one has produced a properly engineered low-tech public charge point? It would look like a self-service petrol pump. Weather proof card reader and charging cables. No clever apps and Comms to go wrong. And you would test it in the Arctic and the Sahara, just like they do with...
