How do I know if a charging point is available?
You can view the available charging points within each parking area on the start page of the EpSpot app.
What connectors are used at the charging points?
An ordinary connector with a residual current device. The charge is equivalent to 2.3 kWh single-phase 230V 10A.
How quickly can I charge?
You can charge at a maximum rate of 10A. If you charge more quickly, your session will be ended automatically. This setting is normally found in the car’s menu or on the box for the charging cable.
Why do some areas have a queuing system?
Some areas have a power guard and a queuing system because the main fuses are insufficient for simultaneous charging at all charging points within a parking area.
How does the queuing system work?
The queuing system works by automatically starting your charging if there is available capacity on the main fuse. If it is full, the vehicle is placed in the queue, and as soon as another vehicle has finished charging, the next vehicle in the queue automatically starts charging.
A vehicle that is fully charged has its session ended automatically.
I can see that the session is starting, but then it ends automatically without the car starting to charge. What is the reason for this?
The issue may be caused by one of the following:
A. An object has got into the car’s electrical connection, with the result that the plug has not been inserted into the socket correctly. During the winter in particular, it is possible for grit to get into the plug when the cable is on the floor of the car or in the boot.
B. The car has switched on time-controlled charging, which means that it is waiting for a specific time before it starts charging. For example, it is waiting for a set departure time or for a cheaper tariff. Note that while time-controlled charging may work during the evening when activated at home, it is not suitable for use during working hours.
C. There is something wrong with the vehicle, charging cable or socket. Try using another socket or charging cable to see if this solves the problem.
