FAQs

What electric vehicles can the Solo Charger charge?

All electric cars that use the "Mode 3" charging protocol can use the Solo Charger. This means pretty much all mainstream electric cars and vans, from Teslas to Renault vans and all sorts in between.

The only electric vehicles it won't charge are more niche vehicles (such as milk floats and forklifts) that use bespoke connectors or standard electrical outlets.

What sockets and cables does the Solo Charger include?

The Solo Charger comes with the choice of a universal socket or tethered cable. To make the Solo Charger easy to use for all drivers, we advise getting the universal socketed model and allow drivers to use their own public charging cables.

However, if you are confident a single type of connector will be required, a tethered model with a 4.8m cable is also available.

How do drivers find, access and/or pay for the chargepoints?

Solo chargers can be set to show public access and payment tariffs through our Smart Reporting platform.

They can be displayed on public mapping, or hidden for private use. Access can be completely free and "plug-and-play", or require the charge event to be confirmed by the driver in the Pod Point app. Business owners have the ability to set whatever fee they see fit, with payment via the app interface.

How do Solo Chargers communicate with the Smart Reporting platform?

Solo Chargers can operate on hosts' Wi-Fi, or have a GSM modem provided, allowing them to use mobile phone networks.

Wi-Fi is generally a more reliable connection, but GSM is often more appropriate for external locations. Solo Chargers do have fail safes in case of comms failure that see drivers' cars charge.

Can I use a Solo Charger for rapid charging?

No - rapid charging is generally considered from 43kW AC or 50kW up to 150kW (or even 350kW) DC. These require much more heavy duty switch gear and connections.

The Solo Charger can charge at 22kW if there is three-phase power available, though the vast majority are 7kW meaning they are suited for locations where cars are normally parked for periods from 45 minutes or more.
