Andersen A2 electric car charger | Smart Home Charge | Smart Home Charge

Description

In a nutshell: the Grand Designs choice

NOTE: 6-8 week lead time for charger delivery and installation

The Andersen A2 is arguably the smartest-looking charging device on the market. In fact, it looks so good we reckon Kevin McCloud would pick this charger.

Available with more finishes than Lewis Hamilton, the Andersen A2 has a style to suit every home ranging from the softer, natural look of the Accoya Wood to the cleaner, more minimalist style of the metal covers.

The quality sustainable materials mean it is extremely durable, while the unit itself neatly houses all the cables and charging gun – no chunky wet cables dangling around here.

If your neighbours didn’t know you owned an EV before, they will certainly take note now. Built-in open PEN protection also means an earth rod does not need to be installed, resulting in a neater finish.

Note: Different finishes for the Andersen A2 may affect the cost of the charger and final installation quote.

Editor's Review

Andersen A2 review

"The Andersen A2 quite rightly deserves its design plaudits. But does it offer more than that? Our editor takes a look in our Andersen A2 review. The Andersen A2 is arguably the most stylish home charge point on the market. Available in a range of finishes, it certainly stands out from the crowd. But is it a case of style over substance?"

Review CommentsAndersen A2 is by far the best looking of the current EV home chargers and is only let down by it's dated app. Overall I'm very happy with both the charger and the process via SmartHomeCharge and would recommend both.

Review CommentsYou have done a fantastic job to turn a rather painful process into a smooth one. Certainly the online interface to follow the process and OLEV grant application is very simple and it felt like that from the very start when you allow customers to ask for a quote. Your team was effective abs did a great job. Thank you!
