      If only he had put a hat on it like mine ,or at lease vaseline or something over the screws {Just had to replace my charger as the old Ohme was faulty. Little tip cover the hole at the top with something as the screw rusts really bad. I had to bend the whole unit and crack the plastic to remove from the bracket as I couldn’t get the screw out due to rusting.}

      Your not having much luck with chargers buddy lol. I fill the rawl plug with silicone then silicone over the screw hole to make watertight and then put a neat bead of silicone along the top and sids of charger. Never had an issue 🙂

      Mines fine mate no issues here

      I forgot to say I just nicked this off another site

      Not sure a charger should need any silicone bead following install as keep being told they are made watertight

      Seems Ohme long term build quality aint all that

      Or perhaps thats their plan

            First thing I noted on pick up was that things I hate were off by default

            Did not enable

            Lane Keep Assist

            Cruise control and speed limiter/road sign recognition/contextual adaptive cruise control

            Why?

            Never needed or ever trusted them

            As I only trust myself having enjoyed and been fortunate to have so far racked up 47 accident free years

            Many other of its safety/comfort features were welcomed and are enjoyed

                Thanks @Kezo for the reply, have spoken with them this morning, apparently they are now charging for the longer cable with the home pro. So i’ve gone for the epod, just got to go through the survey………… no massive rush as i’ve been quoted 3 months + for new car

                My advice would be to complete the survey now asap

                That will give you a clear idea of what your particular install requires

                DNO/supplier/survey/fitter all have to come to the party at the right times

                Best to have your charger sitting idle than missing when needed

                Been there got the T Shirt along with many others on here

                  Just had BG Smart gas and Electric meters installed took an hour as tails already met spec

                  I chose the PAYG as you are still able to top both up over the air and no nasty over charging

                  A phone call is all that is needed if DD is required

                  Little seperate shelf display monitor is very handy

                  Elec is displayed instantly Gas can take 24/48 hrs to show up Im told

                  Following on you can register for and cheap sunday or other offers and that can take 10 days to activate ( im told but this is BG lol )

                  Hell of a journey to even get this install

                  Kept being told I can ask and then have to wait for an invite lol

                  What is this a wedding lol

                  Registered about 8 months ago and no reply so my plan B went into action

                  Frustrated with dealing with online robots I filled in an online complaint form and a week later got a call back

                  Tried giving me a lot of waffle which ended with me saying Its a shame as I didnt want to have to go to another supplier If I could avoid it

                  Open sesame

                  Oh I will have a word with my manager and ring you back

                  Phone rings 20 mins later

                  Is tomorrow Ok for the install

                  Yep

                  The end

                      The Cloth seats are quality and imo more practical in use than leather

                      Would love to see the scenic glass roof on the Megan but suspect the cars shape will not allow it

                      Almost 10 months down the line and my Iconic due to its looks and performance still puts the same smile on my face.

                        As we are all Pioneers

                        Im sure going forward future OTA updates will allow more flexability within the chargers

                        And it is a shame that Easee in no longer an option on the scheme (Had mine for just a few months and it also looks better imo)

                        Easee allowed multiple add-on chargers from the 1st install although this can split the charger speeds between each or if I remember correctly you are able to set up and just charge one if you wish on full charge speed once completed it hops over to other chargers that are plugged into the queue.

                        It can only get better

                          @Elliot No matter what you were told Elliot, its seems actions are louder, Ohme only installed one charger. If anyone told you differently on the phone, in all likely hood it woll be dismissed. If however you have written confirmation to have 2 chargers installed, that is a contract and they would have to honour that. I dont know why you are stressing yourself out over it. If needs be, just get another charger installed, even if you have to pay for it. Common sense prevails, unless you are driving a couple of hundred miles per day, you wont need 2 chargers.

                          I agree and sensible advice imo,

                          If these events unfolded as claimed then without hesitation if it was me the Motorbility CEO PA would be getting yet another @ as they are then able to look closely at the detail of actual events and amend where needed

                          Suspect this could just be a case of crossed wires with phone jockeys,

                          Plenty more of them to come when dealing with Ohme.

                            First I have not head of motorbility allowing installation of 2 chargers at the same address

                            Where did you hear about that motorbility offer?

                            More than one person can login to the same Ohme app setup I hear

                            You say

                            {Looking at the unit last night, you can only have one user and one vehicle on the app which Ohme have confirmed to be the case.}

                            It seems you already now have the answer you are looking for or am I missing something

                                A future Over the air update will add one pedal driving I hear Bonus Maybe also the Megan E Tec? time will tell

                                Its not possible on the Megane due to hardware, it might be possible on the newer updated one

                                The Megane also has FOTA technology, so there is no reason it can’t get it in the future!

                                      {“It’s entirely possible that Labour will also be looking to reduce the current rapidly increasing cost of PIP.}

                                      I suggest and imo that the increase in costs came down to the uneeded setting up of PIP in the first place.

                                      DLA just needed a revamp imo

                                      Where the big money went imo was simply by

                                      Ignoring medical guidance and out sourcing to the expensive and failed private (mates) sector as they have done with most of the silverware

                                      Cruel Cruel

                                      Disputing thousands upon thousands of genuine claims thus resulting in DWP/tribunal costs and counless deaths

                                      And to top it off its now suggested going forward that perhaps things should now be kept in house and that there should be more reliance on medical advice

                                        The user will also have an idicator showing the levels of achieved pre-conditioning

                                              You can organise via motorbility to return your car to any motorbility dealer reguardless of brand

                                                      VW’s reputation is in tatters with ID owners.

                                                      In tatters long before the ID me thinks
