Cord One FAQs

Is there a Type one version of the Cord One EV charger?


No, The Cord One only comes with a perminantely attached type 2 cable. If you are looking for an EV charger that can charge an electric vehicle with a type 1 connector, we reccomend an untethered charger like the Easee One, Simpson and Partners Home 7 or Ohme ePod.

Can I get a longer cable for the Cord One EV charger?


The Cord One comes with a choice of either 5m or 7m cable lengths. If you are looking for a tethered charger with longer cable options, we reccomend taking a look at the HyperVolt Home 3 Pro which can be brought with a 10m cable.

Otherwise, we recommend considering an untethered charger, as you can buy a longer cable.

Is there a 22kW version of the Cord One?


No, the Cord One is a single phase charger only meaning that it cannot utilise a three-phase power supply needed to charge a connected vehicle at 22kW.

In most cases, charging at 7.4kW will be more than enough for most EV drivers. If you would like to know more about 22kW three-phase charging, be sure to check out our guide.

Is the Cord One “weather-proof”?


Yes, the Cord One EV charger has an IP rating of IP65 meaning it is completely protected against dust and heavy jets of water.

Can I get the Cord One in different colours?


The Cord One home EV charger only comes in black or white.

What is the warranty for the Cord One?


The Cord One comes with a three year warranty as standard.

Is there a setup and troubleshooting guide for the Cord One?


We do not have one yet but there will be one soon. Keep checking our troubleshooting page for updates. For now, please refer to the Cord One's user manual.

Installation FAQs

Will my property need works or upgrades to the electricity supply before installation of an EV charge point?


Many customers will not need any upgrades to their electricity supply before having an EV charger installed. All installers are however required to notify the local Distribution Network Operator (DNO) of any EV charger installations, who will advise you and us if an upgrade to your property’s main fuse is necessary. This depends on your property’s “maximum demand” estimate, (which is submitted by our in-house technicians to your DNO as part of our process), the size of the main fuse or if your property is on a looped supply (connected to your neighbour). Any potential works will be handled by your DNO and they will contact you directly if this is the case.

How do I get a quote for my EV charger installation?


If you have an EV or plug-in hybrid, or have one on order, then you are ready to get a charger installation quote. Simply choose the electric car charger you like the look of and select "Request a Quote" at the top of this page. Don't worry if you're not 100% sure on the charger - there will be time to swap this before payment if your change your mind.

Why isn’t my quote the same as the price on the website?


Every installation is unique, which is why we ask you to complete our remote Online Site Survey. We need to properly assess the work involved in order to give you an accurate and honest quote. Our website prices are meant to be a guide and show the minimum cost for an installation of each particular charger. So, that means the quote we email to you may be different to the price on the website.

How long will it be until my EV charger is installed?


Typically this is one to four weeks after payment. The main factors that affect your installation date are your remote site survey completion time and whether your DNO needs to complete any upgrades to your electricity supply before we install your charger. We keep you updated at each stage of the process, but you can help keep things moving by completing your remote site survey quickly.

My car isn’t listed on your website. Does that mean I can’t get a charger installation from Smart Home Charge?


You can still get an installation from us even if you can’t find your vehicle on our website. Simply “Request a Quote” for the charger you like and tell us which vehicle you have in the quote form. Our EV database is updated regularly but are not meant to be a definitive guide – there are simply too many new EVs and plug-in hybrids being launched for us to keep up!

Do you install EV charge points in my area?


Smart Home Charge is a nationwide installer, covering England, Scotland and Wales. We have experienced engineers covering all major cities and regions. Find out if we install EV chargers in your area with our location checker.

Will you set up my charge point app?


Yes. Our engineers will complete the initial setup and pairing of the charger app with the charge point itself as this is considered as part of the installation. However, the engineers are not required to demonstrate how the app works or set up any schedules for you. Visit our EV charger support section for useful tips and troubleshooting.

Will you process my OZEV Grant claim?


As OZEV-approved installers, we are able to help you apply for the EV Chargepoint Grants supplied by the Government landlords, renters, workplace and more. Our team will assess your eligibility for the grant and work with you to supply the right evidence to the Government in order to claim the grant. Your installation will not be booked until we have all the required documentation to submit your claim to the Government.

However, as an installer Smart Home Charge does not approve or reject your claim and a successful charger installation does not mean your claim was approved. It can take up to three months post installation for confirmation of approval or rejection of your claim from the Government.
