#IOMCharge – New MUA Chargepoint at The Bungalow

Manx Utilities have installed a new EV Charge Point at The Bungalow on the world-famous TT Mountain Course. This will be The Island's fastest charger installed to date with two, Type-2, 22Kw (3-phase) sockets.

Any EV will be able to use the Charge Point. However, those equipped with a 3-phase on-board charger (such as the Renault Zoe, some Teslas) will be able to take advantage of the faster charging times.

We've added the point to our map, which is provided via PlugShare.

We'll post updates about the charge point as we get them.

Update: I had a quick drive by charge, the first time Zoe has been able to use a 22Kw charge point. It was a little slower than I thought but my battery was at around 66% when I arrived. The charger was easy to use with no apps or buttons to press, just plug and go. It's not that well signed from the road but there aren't that many places around there so I had no trouble finding it. There are two sockets but fitting in two cars side by side might be a squeeze without blocking access to the door which clearly states not to.

One word of warning, if you are fully charged at the top of Snaefell you wont have much re-gen capability on the way down so you'll have to use your brakes more than normal.
