New Car Cgarging

Hello all

we have just picked up the I-Pace and very pleased to own one.

We used to have a BMW I3 and have a Rolec Wallpod installed at home.
Came to charge the new car today and it will not register with the supplied Jaguar cable but it works with the Rolec cable ?

I am worried that the charger may not be compatible and that we may do damage to the car ...could this be a faulty Jag cable or another issue ?

As this is the first time we have charged it it normal for the car to make a noise when beginning to charge ?

It will not harm your car, all EVSE L2 are compatible and negotiate/signal with the car charging circuits. The main difference is maximum charge rate, and the i3 charger should be able to supply 6 or 7 KW charging for the I Pace. The I Pace maximum L2 charge rate is 7 KW.

Are you in Europe where the charge cable attaches to the EVSE?

The wall unit is just a safety relay. The electricity to power the vehicle on board charger is just passing through from your house to the car.
All the wall units are built to the same J1772 specification.

Yes, the car makes noise when it charges. You may have a bad jaguar cable.

Photon FE, 2013 FR-S, 2014 Forester, and maybe going to get a Fiat 500e
