There’s also 4 InstaVolt chargers that are going in at McDonald’s Cribbs, last time I checked they had started the ground works to 👍🏻
Hopefully they’ll be the new 120kW BYD units

That's great, I don't venture north of the river much but good to know it's there. Is there anything remotely like this in South Bristol?

I think the BYD units are Instavolt's standard now. Like the pair they installed at Farnborough McDonald's in time for Fully Charged Outside.
I do think the location they placed them at Bristol MCDonalds is dreadful though. They'll constantly be ICEd as it's where most people have always parked in those bays.

Am I missing something, there's 8 parking spaces and 16 cables, can you only use one side of the charger at a time, or is one side CSS and the other Type 2?

From the photo it looks to be opposite Nissan in Hayes Way near the Brabazon Roundabout - is that correct? In any case I wouldn't need to use them, as there are free rapids at the Nissan garage itself. :)

Its kind of a shame they are not all on the same bit of tarmac - allowing users to choose whichever network they prefer/have loyalty to etc... Like you see for some of the fast charging stations in Germany for example...

As it’s at Cribbs Causeway they could have two large networks, one at each end as anchors, and then lots of different smaller networks in between. ;)

So Cribbs Causeway now has
3 GridServe (6 cars once the magical update releases)
8 EV Power
12 Tesla
1 Geniepoint
4 Instavolt
1 Shell

Pretty incredible. Shame there is no simple way to check availablity of Cribbs as a whole.
