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.

Review CommentsThe lid doesn’t sit quite right, the engineer has forwarded the concern to Anderson who have agree to visit and correct what may be a manufacturing fault.

Review CommentsMy charger was installed a week ago but still is not working. Although this is obviously very frustrating the support team have been very helpful and in regular contact to try and solve the problem. I am now waiting for another unit for the charger.

Review CommentsInstallation was fine but would have been good if brick dust was hoovered up. Received emails talking about progress of grant when it was all complete. Down to a system error apparently, Andersen app is flaky - they say a new one is on its way.

Review CommentsThough a phew teething problems with the order everything was simple from the start as it’s great that everything from the survey to the OLEV grant is done online simple and fast. Took Anderson 4 attempts to deliver the charger to my home address not good. But it’s installed and look amazing. However sadly the unit does work and can’t get any help from Anderson nor Smart Home charge probably be weeks before it’s resolved due to COViD19 so do I blame them or that. I will change my review once I get something more in the way of a fix but until then it’s staying as it is 5 stars but wouldn’t recommend as it’s passing the buck

Review CommentsSmart Home Charge What a smooth process from start to finish. Expert guidance along the way from choosing a charger to suit, completing the OLEV grant to providing site survey images prior to installation. It helps being treated as a valued customer by everyone you came in contact with at SHC. Installation was straightforward to, in under 3 hours. Charger is in, working and accessible via the App. Job done. Big thanks to all concerned.
