    Well they are hardly going to give it away at a loss now are they? I'm sure the app will update in time

    I was wondering the same. Found on their twitter page

    "You can now see live status updates of Ecars and Ionity Chargers. Access and billing is coming next week. See below what the new App symbols mean. "

    Reports Dublin city north #1 down, #2 limited to 25kW. Reported to ionity. #2 may have been slow since at least 16th March. I updated plugshare app comments for this site.

    I saw that post and suspect it is user error, charging a cold battery.

    Yes, the TM3 is very susceptible to slow charging at "cold" temps.
    That poster also has a history of user error gripes :D

    ;) And all the taxpayers money spent on these 350kW chargers and all they are providing is one down and another at 25kW for over 2 months now! Tst Tst! I think I need to return my Taycan ;)

    Last I heard was this

    https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=113315582&postcount=190

    Waiting on esb supply. 4 chargers were going in on 6th of March. I presume when esb get the finger out they will be commissioned.

    Looked ready to go almost 4 months ago when I last checked.

    If it's stuck waiting for the ESB to commission the supply, it looks like they (ESB) are not only are dragging the heels with their own network, they're also now hindering/delaying Ionity.

    Of course they'll blame everything on covid now :rolleyes:.

    Sure they're too busy installing their own 150kW superhubs everywhere.

    I'm ok with people having a go at eCars for not acting fast enough on their own hubs, it's the negative posts that follow the other parts of their plan that I find unnecessary :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 65,025 ✭✭✭✭unkel


    You mean when they downgrade a 22kW AC charger to 2kW?

    I'll get me coat :p

    Kill north, barriers blocking chargers were there yesterday, not there today (according to Facebook. Not showing live on website map nor app.

    Maybe the rental company for the barriers took them back as they needed them elsewhere....

    Is there still a problem with the speeds at City North? The Ionity map only shows 2 chargers there. I thought there was four but could be wrong.

    Only 2, designed for 4, power may be an issue but shortage of chargers was an issue too, the main reason kill was delayed.

    At Ionity city north one of the chargers seemed to give a lower power. See plugshare app for power comments and photos.

    Email from Maingau regarding a reduction in VAT in Germany.

    Looks like 38.98c/kWh now rather than 40c/kWh

    Should probably be 38.14c/kWh now that Irish vat on EV charging is reduced to 13.5%, in Ireland at least.
    Every little helps :).

    Ya but you paid in Germany so German Mehrwertsteuer applies not Irish VAT.

    Its an interesting point though, I wonder in the future if they will apply local Tax/Duty on Electricity for cars regardless of where the supplier is.

    Would be a pain in the ass to administer though. :)

    I guess everyone has seen that Juicepass 30 euros for July offer, should work on Ionity as well:

    Just passed by the Kill westbound. Heavy rain but I saw few workers around the chargers. Also the chargers have the halo mounted on. Fingers crossed.

    Service takes place here so should be Irish VAT but that's just an opinion, VAT accounting very specialised
