I was a little surprised and a little intrigued charging the Funky Cat to 100% today to have a predicted range of 182 miles.
The last time I got close to that it was back in October. More recently it has been between 140 and 160.
I haven’t had the chance to charge to 100% recently, using rapid chargers to charge the Funky.
My local MFG worked normally when I used that to charge the Funky, giving it an additional 50% charge.
I used a Mer charger at the local library, however despite having it on charge for 30 minutes, it only added 2% to the battery, so I gave up and went to my local MFG.
One interesting experience was using the MFG up at Cribbs Causeway, as it happens opposite the Wessex Ora dealership. I set it to charge, as it got going it did indicate that it needed thirteen hours for a full charge, I knew that it “fibbing”. I gave it a few minutes and it then gave a more realistic figure on the app of 85 minutes. With 50 minutes left to a full charge I decided to have a coffee, checking the app while I waited the time left had “suddenly” dropped to 20 minutes. I had to leave my coffee and go and grab the car.
We had headed up to the Venue at Cribbs Causeway for a game of bowling. The car park was really busy, but I had anticipated that and had planned to park in an electric vehicle charging space.
Having arrived there were spaces there. The chargers were provided by Revive.
Having connected the car I tapped my contactless bank card, but they didn’t accept contactless payment. I then tried my Shell RFID card, but that wasn’t accepted either.
I was running out of time, I didn’t want to miss our bowling slot. So I moved the car to a non-charging space.
Later I checked online and found that the Revive Charging Stations at the Venue only take Geniepoint web app or the Revive RFID card. I didn’t have time to sort that out when I was parked, but is something I will remember if I decide to use them in the future.
