FAQs

What electric vehicles can the Solo 3 charge?

All electric cars that use the Mode 3 charging protocol can use the Solo 3. This means virtually 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 3 include?

To make the Solo 3 as universal as possible it has a Type 2 socket that allows all major electric vehicles to connect, via the standard public charging cables that drivers bring with them.

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

Solo 3 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 3s communicate with the Smart Reporting platform?

The Solo 3 can operate on the host's Wi-Fi, or have a GSM modem provided which allows them to use mobile phone networks.

Wi-Fi is generally a more reliable connection, but GSM is often more appropriate for outdoor locations. Solo 3s also have fail-safes in case of comms failure to ensure that drivers' cars continue to charge.

Can I use a Solo 3 for rapid charging?

No. Rapid charging is generally considered from 43kW AC or 50kW up to 150kW (or even 350kW) DC. These require far heavier duty switch gears and connections.

The Solo 3 can charge at 22kW if three-phase power is available. However, the vast majority are 7kW meaning they are suited for locations where cars are normally parked for periods of 45 minutes or more.
