Is it possible to charge my electric car up to 100% with a fast charger?
When charging your car with a fast charger it is possible to charge up to 80% in 15-30 minutes. The charger needs to slow the charging session down towards the end of the session to avoid harming the battery. Therefore, when the battery has reached 80% the charger slowly stops the charge session.
I am moving house, what should I do?
If the charge point is your property, you can take it along to your new home. We recommend using a local electrician who is familiar with the product. You can change the address in the user account on my.newmotion.com. Alternatively, you can contact our Customer Service Team.
If you are unsure about who owns the charge point, please contact our Customer Service Team.
Where can I find the serial number for my Charge Point?
You need the serial number to be able to register your charge point. Depending on the charge point model, the serial number can be found either on the right side or on the bottom of the charge point.
How can I charge without using a charge card with my Home Advanced charge point?
With a Home Advanced charge point, the standard setting is that you start and stop charge sessions by swiping your charge card along the RFID reader. If you prefer, you can set your charge point to “plug & charge” instead whereby the charge session is started and stopped simply by plugging or unplugging your charging cable. With this setting, there’s no need to use your charge card. You can simply change your settings via your myNewMotion account.
