    Wow. Yet more fragmentation of the nascent EV charging scene. This is the first public deployment I am aware of that uses the SCAME type 3 socket (where J1772 is type 1 and Mennekes is type 2). So yet another cable or adapter to carry! Having said that they also support CHAdeMO. At least fast charge DC is standardised for now - until SAE, the new Mennekes DC proposal and Tesla break up and balkanise this too!Also they use RFID tags to be distributed in Rennes. No-one ever seems to consider the idea that EV drivers may visit from another locality.

    I think it's clear that EV drivers are the last people that anyone wants to consult about Charging Stations :wink:
