Chademo still works, and one of the 22kW AC sockets is apparently working, the other 22kW AC is showing a fault.

Ecotricity Electric Highway report on twitter that there are site works to replace the CCS/Chademo unit with a new model CCS/Chademo/Rapid AC unit

Type 2 socket charged okay, but one side of the unit was recording a fault.

Chademo charged fine on single unit, though connector flex seems frayed, and paper(!) is showing sticking out of the cable / connector interface.

Single Chademo Started and failed. Not sure why. PHEV subsequently used it okay. Dual CCS/Chademo worked fine on Chademo charge.

CHAdeMO only unit works fine, even though someone had left the connector exposed in the rain; CHAdeMO / CCS unit not working - CCS connector had been left exposed to the rain.

The chademo on the ccs/chademo unit has a broken connector. Luckily the older single chademo unit is working

It looks like the listing for this location on the Ecotricity Map might be wrong. Probably worth checking with Ecotricity as to exactly what connectors are here. If you visit this location and can put in a comment to the editors as to exactly what you found then we can update the database accordingly.

Charged Peugeot Ion (i-Miev) fine on the Chademo which is one of the newer (narrower) charger units. I mention this as I had a nightmare the day before with the older (wider) units installed eg at Reading - neither of which were working. This experience and others a fortnight ago at Bridgwater and Sedgemoor - which also have the older chargers - leads me to think that they are generally not reliable and should be replaced. I also believe the problems I had - eiterh a 'ground fault error' or a 'can recieving error' were due to the very wet conditions and that if all the Chademo chargers had some sort of canopy, things would be generally more reliable - and comfortable for users.

Charged here on 5 March, not because I had to (had enough range to reach London easily) but because I was bursting for the loo, and the chargers were right there - highly visible as you turn in to the site, and I have an Ecotricity "for the road" card. (It's well worth getting as they focus on Welcome Break service statins to allow transit charging. And the card is currently free to all, not just Ecotricity customers). As you approach on the motorway you are greeted with an EV with plug logo right under the "Petrol" on the main sign for Oxford Services. This is exceptionally welcoming and very refreshing to see EV refuelling on a par with ICE. I just drove in and there were three very well marked bays with bright green EV charging markings on the road (one has Chademo which I ignored, the other two Mennekes). Even though they were close to the front door they weren't ICEd. It was mid-afternoon, busy, so it has to be because they are so well marked. I was able to present my Ecotricity card still in my wallet to unlock the posts. Plugged in a Mennekes to Tesla cable and it started charging at 32A. No problems disconnecting at the end. Faster than a petrol station refuel in terms of time I spent at the car refuelling. The actual motorway services are good and modern.
