Thankfully Fleet have plenty of spare spaces. Not the first time...

... I did point out where they could charge though, after taking the picture.

There's a university near me that installed 4 Tesla chargers. Unfortunately, they are also come with parking meters charging $4.25/hr for 9.5kW charging. However, they also installed the ones with the 24 foot cables and there's nothing on their signage saying you can't park in the next (unmetered) spot over. Or.... the one on the other side of that.

Oops. Not us. But if it wasn't the wrong side of the car bay, its similar to some of the cables supplied by Tesla.

Farnborough Gate retail park? bloody expensive. 30p/kWh but you have to open an account with them and the min initial deposit into the account is £5 according to PlugShare

Is it 7kW? so you've got to stay there nearly 3 hours to get your £5 worth

I'm guessing you have to stop a charge using their app or website and the owner wasn't able to and so left the cable.

yep. even more expensive for the owner...

I think its all done via a website, no app, although may be mistaken.

I did think about calling them up to get the cable released to do the owner a favour...

Glad I am not the only one who Recognised the location. Never used it as I only live 3 miles up the road.
Re 3 hours takes that long just to get it that blasted carpark some days
