I had wondered that. I’m going to put a cable protector down on the floor, plus the rear of our house is covered by cctv.bigbaldbloke wrote:Just a word of warning from me - make sure that you don't create a trip hazard.

It will mostly be used by my wife, and no more than the electric range, hence wanting to charge overnight. It was more the location of the charging that was giving me concern, and I wanted to know if anyone else charged their car in the same manor.Kesto wrote:Perfectly fine to charge over night. How many miles you will do in daytime?
I think you’ve missed my point. I’m happy for the car charging overnight, it’s the fact it will be on the street on charge, not a driveway as we don’t have one.jaapv wrote:I guess most owners will charge their car overnight. I have a charger on the side of the house and a 20 meter charging cable running to my parking spot in the drive. That is a better solution than using an extension cable on the car charging box, which is, in theory, not allowed and less safe, but works as well.
I can’t put a charger on my house as I don’t have a driveway. From what I’ve read no one will install one?jaapv wrote:No I didn't. I if you read the rest of my post, I advise you to have a charger on your house and a long charge cable (they can be ordered) as that is more safe and legal. To put the car charging brick on an extension cable works, but basically it is against the norm and a common extension lead is less robust and might overheat. at least use a 16A one with heavy-duty plugs.
