A couple of ECar related apps to check out..Chargebump,and Plugshare.
Some will leave their phone details when they leave a car charging so they can be contacted.Some are wary of giving the number out...Chargebump is an EV registry service..No need for a phone #..download and sign up for the app,enter the car Reg,and they'll get a ping someone is in need of the charger with options to respond with a preset message when (or if) you'll be back...
Plugshare has 2 functions..it enables you to offer your home charger to others in need,and it offers real time operational status on a charger when someone uses the app to check in..you can state how long you'll be there,upload photos for accuracy in finding it..there's even a journey planning tool that'll show en route chargers..

Thankfully I haven't encountered many issues with ICEing (North of the Border,anyway..) Got to RC11 the other evening with 12 miles remaining and find another Zoe on charge..No driver..not a Chargebump user.The dash display was lit,so could see they were over 90% when I arrived..Waited 30 minutes while it went to 100% and nobody returned..Ended up going to the NIR Car park unit  not far away to get on my way..
if a 22kW Charger can fill a Zoe in an hour,there's no reason to go off and Leave one on a rapid unattended! (rant over..)

SC69 in Castlederg failed to charge again resulting in a BCI error earlier..I've now had my Zoe just over a Year (and 9300 trouble free miles!) and in that time managed ONE successful charge here in May this year..
Reported,and went through all the reset options the helpline had with no success..

Make that 2 successful charges in 19 months..I'm an optimist and keep trying!

2 visits passing through here recently..the first had the display showing "not in service"..reported it.
Called in a week later and it looked to be operational..Just didn't try it at the time..
Last week,I took a trip to the Giant's Causeway..They also have one of these units at the visitor centre..Left side was "Not in Service",tried the right side as it was asking for a RFID card..Plugged in,verified,red lights..phoned it in..

Hi JB! Just watching this video through,and thinking "Oh,No" when seeing the chargers you ended up at in Omagh..The first one has given Me BCI's each time I used it,the second one had a mechanical issue last time..you wouldn't have been short of charge options along that route,anyway..good to meet You in Enniskillen!

Well worth a visit!

The Enniskillen Asda Superstore ticks most ( if not all ) the boxes for someone looking for one stop shopping in the hub of Fermanagh. (My list may not be exhaustive,there's a lot of products to get around!) I personally am a fan of the in store baked bread,especially their rolls and Bagels.That gets Me in the door.. They have a wide range of fresh fruit and veggies,hot food,deli, fresh fish and Speciality Butcher meats..There's a large "George" Clothing section for all the family..They recently opened an in store Opticians,there's a Petrol station at the entrance to the huge car park that offers the cheapest prices locally,and there's even an Electric car charge point in the car park too (Chargemaster).They offer a Home delivery service for shopping,or you can order online and pick up your purchases yourself.
