It’s not sufficient, especially for CHAdeMO and two drivers need to be able to charge at the same time!

What and where are your favourite UK public chargers?
I’ve only had the experience with Gridserve and I’m not impressed with them.


What’s been your best experience with a UK public charger?
The rare occasion when I’ve got to a CHAdeMO charger and a CCS isn’t using the other side!


What’s been your worst experience with a UK public charger?
At Clacket Lane, all the Gridserve CCS chargers were free except for a taxi driver using the CCS charger that was on the other side of the only CHAdeMO. He wasn’t there and I had to wait an hour until he came back, his taxi was then on 97%, Grrrr…


What’s got to change about public charging in the UK to get more people driving EVs?
There need to be so many more chargers and each dual one has to be capable of charging two vehicles at the same time.
