    Our Ioniq is arriving June, so I arranged for Pod Point to come install a 7Kw charge point on the front of our house.
    I recorded it on several cameras and edited together this timelapse so you can see the process involved. It's very straight forward.

    The chap from Pod point was very efficient. Had obviously done a ton of installs.
    Did a neat job quickly and left the place tidy. He was very happy to answer my questions as well. If we get a second electric car, I'll have Pod point back for a second charger.

    That's useful, I never a knew a Henley block was a thing :thumbsup:. Our installation may be a bit more complex as we converted our garage into a study, so can't just run cables inside it. Conduit on the outside may be an option if not pretty.

    In the office so didn't have the sound on.

    So, he turned off all the circuits in the consumer unit and connected to the consumer side of the consumer fuse live? Did I miss a stage?
