Decided to try a free vend 7kW this morning. London Borough of Havering Pod Point, 10x7kW connectors from 5 posts in car park at new Leisure Centre Harrow Lodge Park Hornchurch. Downloaded the app, plugged in my type 2 cable, selected location from app (each post has a name, mine was “Yoko-Elmo A or B” odd but quite nice). Started charge on app and all good whilst going for a walk. It seemed such a novelty passers bye kept stopping to chat as I was plugging/unplugging. 1 referral given out. I use this location for my weekly swim so will enjoy doing this.
Magic, podpoint are pretty good too, even if you have to pay. Often cheaper than others.
Had a good play with the Pod Point app and ZapMap and it appears there are quite a few in my area (London Borough Havering borders Essex /M25). Tesco all free vend, Lidle all 25p / kWh. Mix of 7, 22 and 50 kW output. Marked up all the Tesco as Favourites on Pod point app. Something to do on a wet wet day.
