  1. Charging Networks
    Hi. I’m Barry in South Devon and am about to start leasing a new VW eUp. I’d welcome any advice about which networks to join and whether I need to order any cards so as to maximise charging flexibility and minimise costs when away from home. Thanks.
  2. Charging Locations
    I recently got a change to use one of the 50kW 'Ultrachargers', that previously were only labelled with a CMU- prefixed reference. This was no use if you were at a site that had several chargers but was trying to activate via their website or app, because the maps and apps only ever give out a...
  3. General Charging Discussion
    Hello Everyone, I am planning to do a two-week road trip with my Kona EV (64kWh) from Germany to the northern coast of Scotland in August 2020. Now I am trying to figure out what is the best way to pay for charging. I do have a smartphone with a Vodafone contract, but I want to avoid a lot of...

    I'm on CYC's half-finished website trying to purchase an Access Card. When I click "Confirm Payment" it takes me to a page which says: Payment Authorisation Payment has not been made There is nothing else on this page to read / click / do / help. Anyone know what I need to do to...

I have no less than 12 apps on my phone (covering various charging providers) and 4 RFID cards covering the chargers which don't work with apps! Wouldn't it be nice to pull up...

    I currently have two RFID cards (CYC and EH) in a little two-card wallet* stored in the armrest compartment. I'm assuming that RFID cards are completely passive, so having two in close proximity won't cause any problems? * Used to contain my free bus pass, which I used about twice! :)

    Hello everyone! Not sure if this is common knowledge (probably is, knowing me luck!), but thought I'd share just in case this is helpful for anyone else. I've been using the rapid charger at Lidl in Mirfield for a few weeks and have been activating it via the app. Works fine, but a bit of a pain...

    After the Queen made her speech are we to expect a single eV user RFID card that can be registered to any network? I would be one to go for this option after so many smart phone related failures to charge. I'd even pay a small amount to cover the administration and cost of card.

    I've just tried to add some cash to my CM Polar Instant account as I'm off on hols on Monday, but the website says User Not Found when I try to log in. Resetting my password - with the email address they mailed in January says User Not Found too. I've only used the card once, last summer...
