I Shall Return … to IKEA that is !

So I had an appointment in Leeds today and decided to check out that odd looking ‘third pole’ at IKEA Birstall on the way back home. It looks like a Type 2 connector on a lead so maybe its for cars that cannot use the super fast DC charger. I plugged up and went off for a free cup of tea as I have an IKEA Family card (free drink during the week) then logged on to my office’s Cloud based Server using IKEA’s nice, fast free WI-Fi to make up my meeting minutes. I shall definitely return here, IKEA are one of the few Companies who really do embrace the whole green ethos and genuinely look after their customers, no ‘me too’ lip service here just solid steps backing up their words, well done IKEA, and well done (yet again) ecotricity for going the extra mile getting these fantastically fast chargers up and running in record time. I think the only downside will be that IKEA close their car park at 10 pm …so how do we charge then ?? Maybe security will allow access ?. But just like General MacArthur I will return, many, many times !!
