Tethered 7kw pod point home charger gets 30amps. Evonestop and original type 2 cable only ever supply 9-10A and 0-5miles/hour at public chargers. Tried 6 different 7kw chargers in 3 locations, they only ever achieve sub 2kWHave you charged anywhere with the evonestop cable and got more than 9-10A?
Have you charged on a tethered connection 7kw charger and got 30+ amps?
whiteco3 does say they used the original.Hmm assuming you purchased the right cable and they sent you the right cable.
I would conclude the cable is faulty. However that seems very rare and strange.
The reason being is... Even if there was something else wrong you should be getting close to 14-16A so has to be the cable.
Try the supplied 11kW cable when you get a chance please... You should get 14-16A. As you'll be getting a single phase.
If you do and its works ok then send the cable back to evonestop, or call them first and ask.
One last thought... Can you give us the location of one of the chargers you are using (or all 3)... And I'll see if I can get get some info on them to make sure its not them.
I am beginning to suspect this may be the case. I know that there is supposed to be some resistor value that sets the maximum capacity of the cable - maybe there is a difference between 1P and 3P. Does anybody have an idea of how this is supposed to work?Is it the fact that its 3 phase that is the problem because the most that the polestar can do is 11kw 3 phase? And we really need a 32A single phase cable to get 7kW?
Well I have only tested on a single PodPoint, so there may be a problem with that or with PodPoint public chargers generally. Unfortunately, most of the local chargers are PodPoint, although I have to go to Abbeywood next week and there are a couple of Polar public chargers by Asda on the retail park so I will give them a go.Interesting! I’ve just ordered a 3phase 32A cable too hoping it would cover me for all eventualities.
If anything that should guarantee you get 32A on a single phase.Any idea on what is going on? Its beginning to look as if my 32A 3P cable was a waste of time and that I should have bought a 32A 1P cable and just put up with carrying that and the 16A 3P cable with me.
My 32A 3 phase cable works fine. On a PodPoint charger today it was charging at 29A .Well I have only tested on a single PodPoint, so there may be a problem with that or with PodPoint public chargers generally.
