Stopped at cobham services for lunch. Didn’t need to charge but thought I’d try out the ionity chargers ahead of if I need them another time.

Plug in, says connected, and gives two choices - member or just pay direct. I try pressing the ‘direct’ side but it’s not a button, juts a message. So I tap my card and get an authorisation error message. Try a different card, try a different stall, same thing

then I spot a QR code on the cabinet and scan it. Apparently this is what you have to do - go to a mini web page, tell it which charger, then enter credit card details? It seemed to work but it’s such a faff. Better than RFID card or app, sure - but these have contactless pads (or looks like it) so why can’t I just pay with that directly?

if they’re all like this I’ll probably add them to my ‘only as a last resort’ list. If they’d been more convenient the price wouldn’t have been too much of an issue

Thanks. Onto the ‘only if desperate’ pile then. Shame as they were blooming quick once I’d finished faffing about
