Not sure if it's me or the charging post so any advice welcome.


Had my first long distance run over the weekend to Bradford on Avon, planned it so that I charged at the Leigh M4 service station on the way in to drive around and then on the way back at the Ecotricity fast A/C charger thinking I would get 80% charge each time, only got 30% in the 45 minutes each time so not sure what happened.

I pulled 7.4 kWh costing over £4 with the £3 sign in which lasted 30 miles so came most of the way on Rex.

It's a 32a BMW cable and seemed to fit ok. I pick up my "Free" cable from my dealer today after much badgering and using evidence from this forum, suspect to will be standard one but I can use that at home and fix it to the wall.

Is it only CCS chargers that will give 80% in 30 minutes ?

Hi fellow i3 owners, I am selling a job lot of all my bmw i3 Accessories, have got a job overseas, and I can't take the car, damn lol. So have just sold my i3 (saddest day ever) and so now looking to sell the accessories I had with it, which includes: 'Frunk Bag', Public charging cable (2-phase not 3), spare cup holder, boot/cargo net, key fob case and some incidentals ie:- BMW embossed notebook, pen and lapel badge as well as a BMW i keyring.

Whole lot going for £250 that's with postage and packing paid for by myself. I think that's a very reasonable price, considering the individual cost of these items.

I am selling it all as a package of accessories, not individually, so if you know anyone who would be interested, then please get in touch. I will send a picture via email as for some reason I can't upload it onto this site?

Hey dan - I'd be interested in the cup holder and the cargo net. I'm in HP1 postcode - I could come and collect if local (ish)

It is if you use it, watch out for the ex CYC posts on the Polar Map they are not all free or 9p+VAT/kWh, some people including myself have been caught out by this.
