  1. Search for best payment method of a forgein EV driver

    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...
  2. CYC RFID Card Purchase

    General Charging Discussion
    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...
  3. Need for Unified EV Charging System

    General Charging Discussion
    I'm on my second EV now and it surprises me nobody has yet come up with a unified system for public charging/payment.

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...
  6. One RFID card to rule them all?

    General EV Discussion
    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.
