So you've got a podpoint, but you're using the cable that came with the car?Thanks - its the cable that came with car so presume its for the 6kw charger?
I tried stopping charge and putting wall plug in first car second but unfortunately has made no difference
I think I’ll give Pod-Point a buzz?
Alternatively get another leaf with 6.6 on board to plug in to your podpoint.So you've got a podpoint, but you're using the cable that came with the car?
So it's an untethered podpoint you have.
So there's three possibilities
1. The podpoint isn't a 7KW unit
2. The car cable you're using can't provide 7KW
3. The onboard charger is knackered.
As others have said, the last one is the easiest to rule out by going to a public 7KW point.
I'd have also thought you'd remember if you ordered a 7KW podpoint, as you'll have had to pay an extra £90 for it.
The reason for this probably has to do with the way a socket-equipped EVSE is supposed to work. The first part of the signalling protocol for an EVSE that doesn't have a tethered lead is to detect the current carrying capacity of the lead that is connected to it. It does this by measuring the resistance of a resistor fitted between PP and PE in the connector at the EVSE end of the cable. This tells the EVSE whether it's OK to signal to the car that up to 32 A is available, or that only 16 A is available, depending on the cable rating. Some EVSEs will default to 16 A if they don't sense the cable (not strictly in accordance with the protocol, but generally safe).Thanks to another forum member here, I discovered that my car only charges at 6kw when plugging in at the wall first, I have a untethered charger, plugging in car first charges at 3.3, plugging wall first charges 6.6, no idea why
