Hi Just taken delivery of a new Niro PHEV and connected it to a Rolec wallpod charger I had fitted a few years ago and the charge appears to start and then after about a minute it stops and turns off, the car shows it is connected but the charge progress screen never appears, the trickle charger from a 3pin plug does work I took it to my local Tesco and it charges OK.
It appears the problem is with the wallpod but I know it works because I tested a full EV recently and that charged up OK.
has anyone else experienced this problem still not sure if it is the wallpod or the car.

The Niro spec says the charger for a PHEV is type 2 3.3kW. Is your wallpod compatible, it seems to come in many configurations.
UK 2021 HEV 4 in silky silver, standard spec.
previously UK 2017 First Edition HEV in pearlescent white, standard spec.
