Completed my first big trip yesterday, just wanted to share my experience! Left home with a full charge, up through Coventry to the M69, onto the M1, charged at Leicester Forest East, up to Tibshelf Services just before J29 on the M1. Plugged in and chatted to some folks looking around the charger, they didn't have an EV but were intruiged, then another fellow in a Leaf pulled up (sorry had to wait 15 mins) as I needed enough charge to venture into the charging black hole which is the Peak District. I did tell him all about SpeakEV and the ChargeBump development. 3 hour meeting at Head Office (quick 10 amp top up). Left at 4 p.m, back to the M1, would have had enough to get back down to Leicester Forest East but decided to put a quick 10 minute 'insurance' charge in at Tibshelf south bound. Stopped at LFE for a 40 minute charge (89%). Put my home address into the Leaf satnav which duly told me I hadn't enough charge to get home (gulp, but I'm pretty aware now of what range I can expect from a charge). Steady 60 home back into the North Cotswolds from there (another charging black hole). Got home with 9 miles showing on the GOM. Perfectly Judged!
