Thanks, I've moved the post out to it's own thread.
I want to add some photos to illustrate it.
Can anyone please share photos of
  1. The MG ZS EV 13a chargeer
  2. The MG5 13a charger
photo taken from above of the cable laid in the boot area?
I can then use these in the article.
Thanks

Can I put my name to:
MG ZS EV charging FAQ
  • The three charging types (slow, fast, rapid) and the time it takes to charge the car with each
  • The cables needed for the charging types and what comes with the car
  • Buying a type 2 cable.
Should be able to do it by Saturday.

Can anyone please share photos of
  1. The MG ZS EV 13a charger
photo taken from above of the cable laid in the boot area?
Once I get home around 2pm-ish today, I'll upload it. The 13amp charger is at home.
(I'm helping my wife in her work, being Mr Muscle as she can't lift boxes)

We could all chip in a £10 and buy you 1 as a belated xmas present .....

I'm happy to contribute by writing or editing articles.
I have set up a premium membership for £3 per month. I’ve never done account upgrades before, so I’m looking for couple of guinea pigs to test it out. Make sure the process works and the new Paypal account accepts payments.
If you’re happy to support the forum and podcast, it will be great if you could upgrade your accounts to Premium membership and let me know how you get on?
You can find the Account upgrades link in your drop-down menu when you click your avatar over in the right of the page header.

I've gone in and processed the upgrade, all seems simple enough. Says I am awaiting admin approval, albeit the banner under my namecsays premium

Many thanks. At what stage did the approval message come up? I've not received any notifications.
I have two recurring payments received in Paypal. One from @Simondi and one from @Jake.

The cable is not very long at all:

No charging indicator on the outside of the MG5. You have to peer in the driver’s door to see this:
