#IOMcharge – Public ChargePoint Update

There have been no new public charge points installed or upgraded since our last update but we do have news on repairs and faults.

This charge point has now been repaired and is back to full working order. Remember that the parking disc restrictions apply in this car park. The square is also often used for events which means the charging bays may be inaccessible on occasion. It also appears that the repaired charge post no longer has the dumb blue commando sockets so you will need your Type 2 cable.

These are still available to museum visitors. The four bays with the red signs are for Tesla cars only. The other two with white signs are for any EV (ask inside for them to be activated).

Please be aware that these have Type 2 tethered cables so will only work on vehicles with Type 2 charging ports. EVIOM had purchased a Type 1 to Type 2 converter to allow other vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf to be able to charge but the cable proved to be incompatible. Hopefully we can find a converted cables that is proven to work with Tesla destination chargers.

The two commando sockets here have been problematic of late. Manx Utilities have advised a damaged socket has been repaired but the last update states they are still having problems.

    There is still no protection on the Ramsey charge point so only a mater of time before it is damaged again. Does nobody ever do a proper location assessment?

      We drove past at the weekend and can confirm that there is now a barrier around the charge post. We also incorrectly said the blue commando sockets had gone when in fact they are still there.
