    Hi folks, not sure if this is the correct Thread but. Has anyone else ever had an issue with being charged for the next persons charge on the public charger ?

    Last Monday I used the ESB charger at the Circle K on the M9 near Kilcullen.

    I did my 20 mins, came out and there was another couple in a fap as they had never used one before. I helped them as much as I could ( given this was my 2nd time ever using it ) but in the end they started to have a proper barney and I just headed off. 😯

    Anyway - later I noticed I got a bunch of emails - 1 charge start then after 20min end charge, then 9 mins after I finished, I supposedly started charging again, and charged 33 mins ( by which time I was actually in or near Dublin )

    I called them, and they said they would look into it, but I haven't heard anything back and I certainly haven't been refunded the money.

    Has this happened anyone else ?
