"Today's the day, then. As I write this, I'm at my desk at Teddington Studios, with the long-term BMW i3 parked down below. It's been charging all night on our Chargemaster 32A socket and I brimmed the fuel tank yesterday.

The i3 goes back on Monday, you see, so as a farewell I thought I'd embark on a longer journey with the car. I'm about to leave south-west London and drive to have dinner with my parents - who still live in Country Armagh, Northern Ireland. The trip will take two days, as it usually does; I'll check in with old uni friends in Liverpool this evening, then scoot across to Holyhead tomorrow. All being well, I'll complete the trek north from Dublin late tomorrow evening."

Why don't they plug the i3 into the CCS charger (which is to the right of where the person taking that photo is standing)?

Edit: Ah - I answered my own question
However, while the fast charger is available at Oxford, it reads my Ecotricity card correctly, then prompts me to connect up the cable. When I do this, it reports a ‘CAN error’ and advises I ring customer support. - See more at: http://www.whatcar.com/car-news/october/1315719#sthash.07yWlEpU.dpuf

It just goes to show that with the current EVs you need not only to plan ahead, but also be prepared with a Plan B and a way to find a Plan C or Plan D!
Yay...... :(

just reading the tweet about issues with charging at Dublin port..I have nothing on CCS charging options going north from Dublin..ESBecars drivers using Leafs say the m-way services chargers make it perfectly possible to cruise up and down between Dublin and Newry,though..
