@Morky99 something like 20% of rapid chargers are not working at any one time and some of the fast charge networks are very unreliable. Unfortunately, we are all early adopters and it's come with the territory
At the moment they are not reliable, forum is full of it, latest updates are supposed to fix but not sure myself unless months go by to prove ok......is this the normal, chargers not working ?
Thanks in advance
It sounds like wetherby is fully back on line now, but also that it seems to be a bit of a hotbed of tension!!!I am due to collect my fist EV on Friday ( Leaf) one of its first jobs will be to take us from Stockport to Newcastle upon Tyne, I looked on ZAP MAP and found a rapid charger at Ikea in Leeds just on the M62 but it said warring this charger is connected but not working ? the next charger on route is Weatherby but again it said charger connected but not working, the next would be Richmond but that will be out of range for us.we are planning to travel at night due to work commitments and concerned we wont get there. any advice gratefully received also is this the normal, chargers not working ?
Thanks in advance
I'll have a couple of pints of that stuff please. Must be good gear!hi guys i was hemmed in by two mitsusishi wishiwashi plug ins today
i was in the middle anyways trying to get the leaf charged on the 2 only rapids at weatherby moto services.
the one on the left been out of action for seems like a lif time probbley 1 month????
well was still down so went to the right hand one this is after the guy came back to the mitsubishi wishiwashi .
and actually spoke to me!!! and said i will be only 7 mins and said i do belive that the other guy need to charge next humm i wasnt happy for a split second .. but said that the machine that i had been trying to get working is still NOT working and i said i would probbley put my car on charge after him...
he proceded to get in his car and GO TO SLEEP!! and then got out and walked aroungd his car for a few times then looked at the rapid charger aprox 5 times back and forth and then finely ithought he unpluged then decided to chat to the other guy gas man with a mitsubishi wishiwashi and onother guy that fixes them rapids aswell then knew i moved my leaf so the guy thats going to fix rapid point could get near to fix i just wonderd how long they
thought my temper would last for before i said right chaps lovley chat any chance of moving so i could get a charge that would be orfully sivolised of you ..
i thought i did well .. all good 45mins to get 85% but intotall waiting time 1 hour and 20mins owell glad it was warm
any ways the gas guy fitted two some kind of capasiters or my be not 2 big risistors ??
so i am 99% that the both rapids are working now..
also the chadamo ends are changing to make them more user frendley as think there has been a lot of abused ones out there . and the trigger's going for good so plug n play and about time and also new holster for them too sounds like i am a geek ..
no just was wating around today for a charge so soaking it up to help my fellow leafwer ups evers. hey also
when i said i was hemed in by mitsubishis eather side and then another guys get out of a big van and says he is getting one aswell 3 guys so did the honrable thing comisarated him on his chouse of cars but owell he said he was getting load of mony back on tax so thats his reason . but as normal i proceded to help his in showing him my cards and other helpfull evthings ..
i am not anti mitsibishi wishi washi but some times the owner do show them selfs up a little and me thinks that
