Zappi for charging i-MiEV

Post by Hippie403 » Fri, 30 Mar 2018, 12:19

Would a myenergi zappi http://myenergi.uk/product/zappi/ be good for charging an i-MiEV? I assume it could ramp up the charge rate a bit more than the standard cable. Can the i-MiEV cope with having the charge rate ramped down as Solar production falls? Is Zappi approved for Australian installation? I'm thinking of getting an Ioniq so I guess I would need a type 2 cable most likely, could I get an adapter to type one so I can charge the i-MiEV as well?

Do we even know what charge port the ioniqs coming to australia will have yet? Assuming they ever do actually bring them here.

There are some signs of motion at Hyundai Australia on the Ioniq range: https://www.hyundai.com.au/cars/small-cars/ioniq I'd guess we would get UK spec cars with CCS type 2 combo.

The Zappi will work fine with 2011 and later I-Mievs. It will be fine down to 6 amps.

Zappi needs RCM approval for Australia but it turns out as they aren't listed (defined) there is a grey area.

You can use adaptors any which way...

Thanks for that. My I-MiEV is a 2012, sounds like I'm good to go. So I can get a type 1 cable now and just get an adaptor for the Ioniq if required?

Or ask them if the charging cable is serviceable and easily swapped. If thats the case order a Type 2 version Zappi from the UK and order a Type 1 cable for the I-Miev and swap it. Avoid adaptors if you can.
