Geo68 runs a MG5 EV electric car comments on public charging.
What do you think of the UK public charging network in general?
Since I can only use public charging it’s really annoying when an ICE car is parked in the only free bay. Also, the number of apps I need and the different charging techniques needed can be overwhelming for us pensioners. Fortunately, the chargers around me work quite well. I live in Cumbernauld.
What and where are your favourite UK public chargers?
ChargePlace Scotland is my main app in and around Cumbernauld where I live.
What’s been your best experience in your MG5 EV with a UK public charger?
Plug in and it works, what else do you need?
What’s been your worst experience with a UK public charger?
Plugged into a Pod Point in Edinburgh in St James car park, came back a good few hours later to see that it failed. The problem was no phone signal in the underground car park and their wi-fi was useless.
What’s got to change about public charging in the UK to get more people driving electric cars?
More chargers, easier use and touch credit card.
