I think once the pod point is not able to access the internet via your WiFi router, it will then be visible to any smartphone or computer nearby as a WiFi connection with "Podpoint" as the SSID.Presumably if you change your router password Pod-Point will no longer have access to it. That's the easiest way I can think of.
Worked a charm! Happy daysHave just had a look inside a Pod-point Solo. The wifi aerial seems to be a small PCB floating around, and it plugs into the main PCB with a minuscule clip-on plug, near where the mains cable come in. If you unplug that, there's a chance it may lose any ability to connect using wifi. Worth a shot? SImply lift that tiny plug, very carefully, vertically away from the main PCB, as if it was a tiny 13A plug.
It is disappointing that Podpoint haven't included any scheduling, but there is talk of it being added. Ideally they would work to support ev.energy app so it can work on demand tariffs like Octopus Go and Agile.Ah I see... the Podpoint Smart charger is only smart for their interests, not yours... So of absolutely no real use to the end-user whatsoever plus you have to pay a ton of cash for the privilege 😆
There's been talk of it for 3 years with no sign of delivery. Given their purchase by EDF expect no increase in functionality whilst the accountants sweat the asset to justify their purchase which was for different objectives.It is disappointing that Podpoint haven't included any scheduling, but there is talk of it being added.
Really? I agree in principle, but up to now it's allowed and not a requirement to maintain beyond 3 years. What's different between my EV charge point (essential for my commute) and next doors electric storage heaters in their poorly insulated house? Who has more right to consume electricity at the time of our choice?People connecting 7kW non-smart charging points (or disabling it) isn't very neighbourly and will probably will be made unlawful at some point.
