    V2H is just about getting established in the UK for Chademo. But Chademo appears destined to go the way of Betamax before much longer. V2H is allegedly 'coming' for CCS, but the real availability of V2H compatible CCS cars, or corresponding bidirectional home chargers is still vanishingly small...

    I would like to replication what Glyn did with his eNV200. Looking for help and advice, van is ordered but I have no measurements or specifications I'm finding an all electric EV setup interesting in terms of rethinking the norms of power charging and consumption. For example, since we need...
  4. General Charging Discussion
    Hi all, New to the EV game. Took delivery of a BMW ix3 before xmas and love the car. We have had a PodPoint installed in our drive and will be getting a 5.5kWh solar system installed with Tesla Powerwall this year. We're in the process of transferring to Octopus Energy to take advantage of the...
  5. ZS EV
    Folks, a bit off topic, but as I've just had my electricity renewal in I thought I'd share. I live in Scotland and have been lucky enough to be able to charge my ZS EV for free using the local Charge Place Scotland chargers. However with what's going on with electricity prices I don't expect...
  6. Home Charging Installation
    I want a charge point. I also want an electric car & solar panels with battery! I hope to get all this over the next few months. My initial question is: What make/brands work best for my needs? The car will probably be a Kia EV6 The (feature rich) chargers I've heard of are: Hypervolt & Zappi...
  7. Renault ZOE
    I'd like to refresh the topic as I couldn't find any definitive advice. Years have passed by and there are now lots of products out there that could resolve the issue with dead 12V batteries after a long parking. I've found both the solar chargers that work inside the car as well as OBD...

    I got a quote through SolarTogether and sort of assumed it is a good quote. It is part of a group buying scheme by the council, I thought it is probably as good a value I am going to get - plus a vetted supplier. But I have had some great responses to my other question and somebody pointed me to...
  9. General EV Discussion
    Hello, I have been looking to buy an EV for couple of years now but I put the idea on hold as we weren't travelling much and even the ICE at home looked like a massive waste of money. I finally sold the car and now seriously looking to buy an EV replacement. In the meanwhile, I also registered...
  10. Home Charging Installation
    Hi - I'm about to get a Used Leaf 24 - looking for 7kw charger - have solar panels so apparently I need a zappi to take advantage of those. The zappi 2 requires no earthing, so cost should be reasonable. Any idea who is good to fit it? I saw earlier threads suggesting £600 install was alot -...

    Anyone seen the Sion EV from Sono Motors? Did a quick piece on it, would love discussion around it.
  12. Renault ZOE
    Just saw this on my news feed and thought t was interesting. How an electric car can make you money I thought the only cars that could do V2G were the new Nissan Leaf's. If this is the case then would be interesting if any of the UK companies could offer it.

    I have solar panels on the roof (of the house) so I'm guessing it's going to be cheaper to charge during the day (while the sun shines) or am I just dreaming?
  15. General Charging Discussion
    I am thinking of getting Solar installed to compliment my Leaf. However I spent more.time during the day at work than I do at home so I am not sure how much it would be used. Also the batteries that are on offer are a teeny capacity so are they worth it. Any help would be appreciated.
  16. General Charging Discussion
    Well I had my Zappi working well for a month with the CT input hard wired to the Grid import. However the cable had to be run around the house outside as it wasn't practical to have it going through the house. I ordered the Harvi to send the grid info wirelessly. I got the Harvi detected and...
