zerocarbonworld still seems to offer free chargers in the UK for businesses who meet their criteria
or am I missing something?

free DC-DC charging stations in the US sponsored by Nissan

https://trapster.com/trapmap

trapster has EV locations.
but iOS app is buggy
crashes after adding a few EV locations, probably memory allocation issues.
can only seem to add EV locations via the app & not the website.
bit of a drag cos one has to reposition the map to the location because initially is zooms in on your current location.

also some locations don't show up.
eg. RACWA 832 Wellington St.

also watch out for battery life as it runs the GPS in the background.

I've added my home in Mt Colah, Sydney.

I have no reservations doing so as:
1) I've only put it in approximately
2) I've added my number for the person to call
3) I've advised that I don't answer "Private Number" callers and that you can turn off "Private Number" on a per-call basis by prefixing the number with 1832.
Planned EV: '63 Cortina using AC and LiFePO4 Battery Pack

Yes, same thing I just reloaded the 'Charger' link twice and it worked?

I added a couple this morning, hopefully they will get transferred to the new system sometime?

I did a similar thing with our home J1772 charger with the note: Intended for emergency use only - contact owner on XXXX XXX XXX to arrange charging.

And also used your idea of just putting in a location that is nearby.

Not sure the best way to do it??

How do you delete or edit an entry after a post?

Can't see anyway from my Android tablet?

Must be so obvious! But.....

Maybe I should go and login on my PC and see if the interface allows it there?

Bruce (err... talking about the Recargo site)

Keep'm coming....

Just checked and the Organic Market up in Sterling and the Nissan Dealer on Unley Road are not in Recargo either? Will add them.

That double entry has disappeared today! Strange things happening with that app!

Hope fully all these will get transferred.

"Just checked and the Organic Market up in Sterling and the Nissan Dealer on Unley Road are not in Recargo either? Will add them."

Bruce, have you tried the Level 2 Chargepoint at Visionstream on South Rd, Edwardstown?

Also supposed to be one in Burnside Village car park lower level.
I am not sure if you still have to pay for the parking though.

Thanks adelaide-ev!

No I do not know about either of those.....

is the one here?

Image

And there are another two at the Grote St U-Park that need to be checked out. I have an email into the Adelaide City Council about the cost of using these, trying to get it changed to be like the free Gouger St bollards.

So six more need to be added but I think it is best we have a look at them and try them out before adding them - just to be safe. Just a matter of finding time to do it.

"is the one here/"

Yep, had a look on the weekend in anticipation. Picked up my car today!
As soon as I get it registered (on a permit for that) I will go and try the Visionstream one out.

It is in the Visionstream carpark right on the corner of South rd -one block walk to Castle Plaza. (banking, shopping etc)

I did wonder if someone who works there might occupy the spot during the week - there is also nothing to stop another (non ev) parking in the space, which could be frustrating.

However it was working - screen lit up and asked to swipe card to release the charger.

Do you know if the Nissan dealer on Unley Rd is happy to charge iMiev's?

Sally

Yep, need to take the ferry, a friend lives near it. All the locals are a bit confused by it!

It's a 15A level 1.

Wonder if the ferry offers on board charging?
Imagine you might need it if you drove from Adelaide to Cape Jervis first.
Haven't been to KI for a few years -another iMiev adventure coming up!

Well here's an update on the Visionstream charger on South Rd, Edwardstown (Adelaide) -

Got there about 1pm today and ...."there is also nothing to stop another (non ev) parking in the space, which could be frustrating"....proved to be true.   
However....after speaking to someone in the carpark, whilst I was seeing if I could manoevure somehow next to the charger, a man quickly came scurrying out of the office and moved his 4wd!
Had barely connected up and another man and few spectators emerged -I may have been the first, or one of, public customer they'd had.
Lots of interest, plenty of helpful discussion about signing/marking the space more clearly in the new year and the 2nd man said if any difficulty in future, he is always in the warehouse around the back (Ackland Rd), so just pop round there and he will get an obstructing vehicle moved!

Only charged for 51mins while I walked to the bank (after driving all over Adelaide getting rego done and with A/C on full).

But a useful trial all the same -they are now aware there are some local EV's who will make use of the charger!

and it is a level 2 so didn't need my own cable either.

Adelaide ev I've added the site to recargo http://www.recargo.com/sites/11513 next time your there grab some photos of the charger.

by the way what ev enthusiast is running kangaroo island ?! i check chargepoint this morning and you have 5 new charge points going in at 4 new sites ! so you'll have 6 chargepoints compared to 1 in Newcastle and we have a population of like 200 000

don't forget if you have a smart phone you can get the recargo app and the chargepoint app to use it to review charging sites.
