With eight state of the art ChargePoint CPE250 high powered chargers, it’s perfectly placed for both local EV drivers and holidaymakers heading for the coast this summer.
The brand new service area provides a range of facilities for drivers to enjoy whilst they recharge at rates of up to 125kW, including a Costa Coffee drive thru and a Co-op supermarket.
Agreed. Ideal for a stop on the way to or from the A17 etc. Need more of these around the uk. Fast, decent price and several stations...Great location. Cost was 35p/kWh. Shop adjacent is very well stocked. There is a toilet inside the shop. Don't know what hours the shop operate.
I was under the misapprehension all this time that it meant you get 125kW unless someone else was using the other unit. Could you link to something to explain how they actually work in practise?...The units state 125 kW shared 62.5 kW max this sounds like nonsense to me. Why share if each one can only take half?
That would be if the battery pack nominal voltage was 400V, right? So for the e-Niro 64, with a nominal voltage of 356V, 70kW sounds about right?According to Instavolt, the 8 at Necton are standalone and capable of 125kW. Most of their sites are in pairs power sharing 125kW between the two. According to the spec sheets, in power sharing mode 200A is max power on CCS so 80kW.
I am only reporting what it says on screen. I suspect you are right. 70 is more than 62.5 right. Something lost in translation?I was under the misapprehension all this time that it meant you get 125kW unless someone else was using the other unit. Could you link to something to explain how they actually work in practise?
I so agree - not so much for when I leave East Anglia for the North but when I'm coming home on those dark, wet, cold nights... :-(What3words location is: upon.take.processor
now if instavolt had a location at the A16/A17 intersection, that would really fill in a black hole of rapid charging.
