Chargemaster / Polar Membership

I’m not sure if this is generally known in the forum, but the above group are supplying free charge point RFID cards if you care to apply via their website;


Pertinent to Twizy owners, as the bulk of their posts I have had the pleasure to use, provide a 13a socket for Twizy use - AND - will take the standard UK Twizy plug without modification (although on newly installed posts it may take a little bit of pressure to latch the trapdoor securing the plug!)

Didn’t know about this, thanks :slight_smile:

I filled in the form and they sent an application form and they appear to be expecting £10 for the year. You also get a form for a free home charge unit. Where did you see the free RFID card mentioned?

I filled in the form (as you did?) and 3 days later I got a card. I wonder if they were testing the water? The card I got wasn’t even branded (plain white) but it certainly works. Their terms only state you will be charged for a replacement card - had you one before? * 1. Your application will be considered by the Company and if accepted you
will be notified in writing.
*2. Once membership has been accepted by the Company you will be provided
with a Membership RFID Card that provides access to charging points operated by
the company and by Plugged in Places Schemes that Chargemaster has negotiated
interoperability. This card remains the property of the Company and must be

sites). At all times you agree to use the charging points in accordance with

charging the electric car listed by you on the application form. You agree to
pay any parking or other charges as stated by the site owners. The POLAR
membership allows free access and usage of POLAR public network including
partner schemes until March 31[SUP][size=2]st[/size][/SUP],2014. Chargemaster reserves the
right to review this pricing structure on an individual basis with 30 days’
*4. By submitting the application form you confirm that you are the owner
or user of the electric car specified on the application form.

*8.From 31[SUP][size=2]st[/size][/SUP] March 2014 a range of tariffs will apply for
access to the POLAR charging network and you will be given the option to accept
these or let your membership lapse.

terminate this agreement without notice in the event of breach by you of the
terms of this agreement. It may withdraw any offers without notice.

membership application form.
*12. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of England
and Wales. Any dispute between the parties relating to these Terms and

Not had one before. Just filled in the online form, and then got an email with application for Card, and application for home charge unit. The email then states how £10 payment would be collected. Oh Well.

Got further than me. I filled in the form and - well sod all.

I’ve got a chargemaster card, for ASDA, ,and a pod point card for sainsburys. I had to chase pod point though.
It’s a pity there seem to be no standard. Pity Marks and Sparks don’t have any.

M and S Outlet at Cheshire Oaks has one. Think its pod point.

My local M&S (Braehead) has a 3 phase Rapid Charger, and 4 Type 2 bays. All from eVolt, the lack of accommodation for Twizy users is alarming, not even 1!

So it’s just around me, Bradford. Figures
