IKEA Ecotricity Chargers now cost money (but they will refund you £6 in-store) full details

IKEA and Ecotricity chargers have been free for a long time (5 years in fact) but as of 14th November 2016 they will all be paid options via the Electric Highway app from Ecotricity.

The good news:

IKEA are offering to give customers the £6 they spend on charging to them in store credit (if used on the same day as charging) so spend £6 in-store and get £6 off your spend.

The problems

  • You still cannot do 2 x 30 min charges without visiting the charger (i.e. blocking a charger whilst you finish shopping).
  • You must wait for the email receipt (i.e. blocking a charger whilst you wait to pay or waiting around for your charge to end)
  • You cannot spend the £6 in the Restaurant or the Food Market
