Instavolt Banbury showing as 2 locations

For some reason InstVolt in Banbury (Stroud Park) shows one lot of 7 chargers and another single charger on the map. This should just be a group of 8 chargers all together.

Charger ID's:
Single - abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=16054361

Group of 7 - abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=16040725

Attached a screenshot. 1 and 7 are the proper chargers. I've also marked the location '?' as that is coming from Open Charge Map, it is the same chargers so should be merged or not visible (abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=23418676)

Hi Chris,

The last one we can ignore as it since has been recognized as a duplicate and replaced by: abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=16040725 which offers live status.

Instavolt themselves now claim there are 16 stalls: instavolt.co.uk/location-hub/electric-vehicle-charging-station-banbury-000205

It is unclear why they are separate instances as well as why the number now seems wrong as well, but as this is data fetched from an external source with live status I will need to ask to have it corrected on their side in order to not lose the live status.

Do you perhaps know if 16 stalls is the correct number? Meaning 16 x CCS and 16 x Chademo ?

Hi Katya,

It is indeed a 16 charger hub now, 16x dual head CCS/Chademo chargers.

The map now appears to show 3 pins in the map for it, so I guess pick the most up to date on your source and have them update it to 16 chargers and hide/ignore the others :o)

Thank you!

Right, I can see there was another one added even if the ocm one was de-duplicated. So to summarize;

abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=16040725
7 x 125 kW CCS
7 x 125 kW Chademo

abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=16054361
1 x 125 kW CCS
1 x 125 kW Chademo

abetterrouteplanner.com/?charger_id=60906250
8 x 150 kW CCS
8 x 60 kW Chademo

As mentioned this will still need to be corrected in the actual source from which we fetch the information since statuses point to specific stalls.

One last question before I have this reported, do you know if the new stalls only offer 60 kW for Chademo? Instavolt doesn't appear to specify it.
