Charging for the first time at the Chargemaster posts in Telfords shiny new asda....new to me design of chargemaster posts.

Type 2 only. Am pretty sure they are charging my 6kw Leaf at 16 amp only....is a long way short of the 30 miles an hour rate of charge I get at Nissan dealer.

Others found this?

The good news is that I can charge my Ampera there.
The bad news is that I will not be coming that way before April 1st so sadly it is of no use to me at all, unless my Source west card lets me charge without paying chargemaster fees.

Check with the customer service desk, they may have a card that can be used for a refundable £10 deposit. They do have at Perth but not sure if this will still be available when the charges come in. I prefer to use my own card so that I can keep a track of the power used but I have been told by a member of staff about the cards they hold for customers using.

If it works this could be a good idea for us if the site owners that I assume sell the electric to Chargemaster are prepared to buy it back from them at double or three times the price.

Yes, the same my standard issue. Will try and do a closer comparison from a similar soc at both in the next week. In a ten minute period it charged 3 % - 18 miles charge in an hour. Was there an hour and a half and think similar rate...did not measure start soc exactly though
