We've recently had an Aldi open up nearby with 4x unidentified type-2 charge points (I'm assuming 7kw). The signage simply says "Plug in and charge while you shop" - no further instructions or information! The points themselves are smallish blue units on poles, with Newmotion by Shell logos on. They have a little LED indicator, a type 2 socket and a RFID symbol on the top. There's also a little sticker that indicates a red light = error, blue = charging, yellow = waiting for ID.

I can't for the life of me work out how to get a charge out of them. If you plug in the car, the LED lights yellow and won't charge the car. I tried swiping my Shell RFID card and the unit bleeped, light went green then red and the unit wouldn't charge. The chargers don't show on the Shell app or Zapmap, and the staff I talked to don't know how the unit works.

So, has anyone used a similar unit? How do you get them to work?
