No home charging. Mostly charge at work, occasional 3-pin cable through window plus public charging.

I don’t have a special tariff due to current charging situation. Will research in future if things change.

ESB and occasionally EasyGo both very reliable. Haven’t used any UK chargers yet.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
www.evinsurance.ie – they show a little more awareness of the needs of an EV driver compared to the standard companies.
