Today I received my ‘top up’ cable, or the granny charging cable as it is being called by some. Not only does this mean that yes, the cable does indee [See the full post at: The special ‘top up’ cable for the ZOE]
Thanks Surya, good to see that it is possible to obtain this, but will it work without a s/w mod and will it then only work with your car?
Also to use it in the UK you will need a suitable adaptor for our our 3pin 13 amp sockets.
I’m using the cable for the first time now. 57% to full will take 8:40 according to the car.
The cable is plugged into a French to UK adapter (13 amps) which is plugged into a UK to camper outlet (16 amps) so I’ unsure how much we’re using.
You are a brave man, Surya. Glad to hear that you have reached your campsite and you were able to charge-up.
If you find yourself in the Manchester-Liverpool area (which is known as the north-west in London-centric UK) you are welcome to use my home-charger (WA2 0UF). In my experience, apart from Ecotricity, everything else in the UK infrastructure is suspect. Even those suppliers (mainly local authorities) who charged only for the access-card, are now blocking users since the government pulled the funding.
