    Great idea ofcourse, but how long will you be at a Lidl for it to make any change? You might gain like 5km while charging with 11kW, would that make any difference?

    The picture on their website is showing a regular 16A (blue) outlet and a 16A 3-phase (red) outlet while they are probably using a Type 2 connector ;)

    I had the time limit thing with a Waitrose supermarket here, but I explained to the manager and I was allowed to stay while I went for lunch.

    A blue socket or a Type 2 mennekes socket?

    charging for 1hr is stupid, that would gain about ~15km, really spectacular..
