Well I didn't think I'd ever need one. And I could probably continue to survive without one. But after a few close calls recently and my desire to travel to more remote areas, I think it might be a good backup.

Problem is the cost. So:
- which other Zoe owners have got themselves one?
- Did you buy the Renault one, or something else?
- And what experience of charging, does it work well? Did ZOE need any modification before using it?

Would recommend @nuWorld Energy for the EVSE and as far as I remember he was going to somebody who owns Zoe to try one. I paid £370 and I'm very happy about it even if I'm not using it very often

Not sure if I've had the latest software updates. But it's just had the first service during which they gave my R-Link an update, and they fitted a new telecoms control unit too, so I would assume that I'm up to date.
Do you have a link to the cable that you sell, please?

I am being picky but aren't the images for the 5m and 10m the wrong way round...;)

Great, so I've just ordered one from nuWorld energy. That should keep me out of trouble.
Mind you, after watching @alloam recent post on YouTube I might worry less about getting down to zero miles...

So it arrived and a quick test tells me that it's working well. Clearly I didn't need to worry about compatibility with Zoe.
