Just had an interesting chat with Transport Scotland, an organisation dedicated to ensure a proliferation of public charging points across the country. We were all singing from the same hymn sheet until I queried where the BS1663 (square pin) socket was to allow a Twizy to recharge.
THERE ISN’T ANY!
Neither was the guy apologetic - saying that 13amp plugs are inherently unsafe and the posts all require a ‘Type 2’ plug inserted before any charging will be permitted. He suggested they had no responsibility to look after ‘legacy’ devices and it would be up to Renault to replace the captive lead with a properly-designed type 2 alternative, not for them to retro-fit posts with ‘non standard’ sockets.
It appears the bulk of on-street sites in Scotland will be of no use to Twizy owners, and he suggested the same would be true down south too.
Am I worrying needlessly, can a type 2 > 13amp socket adaptor be used and as anyone tried it?
