Very useful info. What would be useful would be a chart which shows when is busy/not busy at the stations so I can plan when to leave.

No guarantee but I have charged at Folkestone Eurotunnel on at least seven occasions... a very lonely place ;-)

Ionity is there too.

Non exhaustive list of UK Supercharger sites with restrictions such as waiting limits or registration requirements. This information should be treated as a guide only and information may be incorrect, incomplete or out of date.

I have started this in good faith but please can someone check and correct information below. Likewise, the formatting needs improving. Its a Wiki so up to forum contributors to maintain. If you find an error/omission, please fix if possible.

Inverness Supercharger is inside a pay car park. Collect ticket on entry, and if you are just there to charge press the Intercom button on exit to be let out (for free).

Just got stung at Scotch corner. Gits - this is like a trap - who on earth would expect that Telsa hadn't made a clear arrangement, its totally out of the ordinary so why we would assume to have to register? there were no signs on the meters as I recall, and why would we even expect to when this isn't the norm?

It's crappy and really should be addressed by Tesla at all affected sites, but at Scotch Corner there are quite a few signs there warning you to register at reception. I've used that site about 15 times and never seen anybody that has not seen the signs....

I agree. There are lots of signs there - very clear what is needed to be done

Newport Pagnell services closed at 8.30pm today and completely coned off. Use Northampton or the 3x Gridserve at Toddington.

Queue for petrol at all services on M1 was onto the slip road but easy to bypass at Toddington. Gridserve chargers are next to the Costa Drive-Thru.

They're 120kW and I got 68kW with a 25% SOC, so a bit "meh".

I have used this SC a few times now as its perfectly placed for a drive North from Leicestershire and my SR+ range and bladder are quite well matched at motorway speeds.
As others say, there are plenty of signs (one on each Tombstone I think) but when brains are set to neutral after a tiring drive it is possible even to miss them I guess.
I wouldn't have thought the hotel's position away from the services would attract cars being left for long periods to require parking enforcement so guess they were offered the "service" by Parking Eye as a revenue stream.

The problem is long standing, I have been staying at the hotel for years. The car park location lends itself to folks doing a meet up or car share and clogging up the parking for their customers. They put the system in many years ago before Tesla SuC and are very careful to get their guests to enter their car details on arrival. I am there next week with my new M3 LR for the first time.

Used the supercharger in The Chimes shopping centre Uxbridge. Charged £2.20 for parking. Tried the intercom at the barrier and explained that I was just charging and hadn't used a regular space etc but she was having none of it.
No warning in the car navigation. Nothing to say you had to pay even if just charging.
I know it's only a couple of quid but I think it should be clear. Have complained to both Tesla and the shopping centre. Will see.

i remember they had a longgggggg message on how to get charged on the map. I'm not by the car right now but I dont remember it talks about how to get rid of the charge (inverness and edinbrugh airport do, in a way or another)
