Charge your Car network (uk) status unknown for CCS
I am going on a road trip next week to Skye, Lewis, benbecula and back to Edinburgh. I see most CCS rapids enroute are either not working or status unknown on the Charge Place Scotland site. This is really frustrating as I donít know if I can rely on any of them or use 22kW units and have to wait up to 4 hrs at some points with ferries to catch! I asked the support team what this meant and got this half answer:
This will normally refer to an APT rapid charger, the charge history from these units
is recorded only as either the AC (type 2) or the DC (chademo/CCS). So the information
we receive from the manufacturer does not allow us to determine the difference between
the Chademo and the CCS. Only that one of the DC cables is working, resulting in the
status ' unkown' .
Sorry for this.
This could turn out to be more of an adventure than I thought. I bought a waterproof 15m extension cable for backup granny charging overnight from our accommodation if they let us.
