What and where are your favourite public chargers?

My favourite chargers are the Pod Point chargers in my local Tesco car park. My favourite rapid ones are the ESB chargers which are mainly based in Ireland but also in Coventry, London and soon to be Birmingham as well.

What’s been your best experience with a public charger?

With the ESB chargers in Coventry where they have the 43kw Rapid chargers which my Zoe Q210 can use at full charge.

 

What’s been your worst experience with a public charger?

I had a horrendous journey some time ago when there were so many of the chargers I turned up at that did not work. I ended up not completing my journey and eventually gave up and worked my way home finding chargers on the way. But thankfully all those chargers are now in new hands and are all being replaced with brand new chargers that will be well maintained.
