    Green - known live
    Red - known not live

    I guess the UK Leaf owners have been making good use of them.

    They have been trying to, but there have been multiple reports of drivers turning up to find broken chargers and getting stranded for 8 hours.

    Such is the risk of putting the complexity off board.

    You'd think that the network would be able to warn you about a broken charger.

    ChaDeMo adapters started to deliver end of January in Denmark it seems.

    How about the UK, anyone got ChaDeMo yet?

    Hong Kong - no word yet, at least a month, possibly more. Not that we really need them, but I want one.

    Yes a few UK owners have them, but the supply is pretty constrained.

    Interestingly it seems like the EU variant has overtaken the US model - I don't think any North American owners have their yet.

    For once we get something first. I am still waiting for the outcry!

    We also got v6.1 first (though only by a few hours). When I pointed this out in the main TMC forums basically everyone said "well it's about time you guys got something first"!

    My wife tells me there's a CHAdeMO adaptor shaped parcel waiting for me at home... :smile:

    Is it scary that your wife knows what a CHAdeMO adaptor shaped parcel looks like ;)

    Blige! This is the current CHAdeMO scene (courtesy of Plugshare and using the same size area and scale)...
