If the upfront cost of an EV charger installation is a bit tough to swallow, why not spread the payments out through our monthly finance option?
Try out our handy finance calculator tool to preview different deposit amounts and terms. Your actual monthly payment will need to be confirmed after your installation has been quoted, as our website prices are an initial guide.
The figures shown in the calculator are for illustration purposes only. The final costs will be displayed in your quote after the online site survey has been submitted and assessed.

The Ohme doesn't try to wow you with superficial styling, instead focusing on one mission - charging your car. Nonetheless, it is still a small and sleek charge point.
Dimensions - H239 x W89 x D53mm
Weight - 3.5kg
The Ohme is unlike most other charge points in that it uses a built-in 3G/4G mobile signal to connect to the Ohme data centre. This can be much more reliable than the WiFi connections of other EV chargers, especially if your charger will be located relatively far away from your home WiFi router. The data use is also free.
The Ohme features a small, but handy LCD screen as well as LED indicator lights which help you quickly identify the status of the the charger, such as charging, waiting to charge or if there's an error.
The Ohme Home Charger is capable of charging your vehicle at 7.4kW, which works out around 30 miles of range each hour depending on your vehicle.
The Ohme Home Charger is a tethered charge point, which means its integrated cable is permanently attached. The Ohme cable length is five metres as standard.
By telling the Ohme app which electricity tariff you are on, it knows what the prices are and when the cheapest rates are available. This means it can automatically start and stop charging to help you save money on car charging.
Simply tell the Ohme app how many miles you'd like adding to your vehicle by which time and let the Ohme do the rest. It will meet your desired target and charge at the cheapest electricity rates (depending on your energy supplier).
The Ohme's ability to automatically charge your vehicle when electricity prices are low means it is the perfect companion for the Octopus Agile energy tariff. Octopus Agile prices follow wholesale costs with half hourly rates - the Ohme makes it easy to charge your EV on a time-of-use tariff like Agile.
Don't want your vehicle to charge above a certain price, such as your peak day rate? Simply set a price cap in the app and the Ohme will not charge your EV unless prices fall below this limit.
See your past charging sessions with details on start and stop time, energy delivered, and estimated cost.
The Ohme app knows how carbon intensive electricity production is at any given time. If you prefer, the Ohme can charge your vehicle when there is more renewable energy in the grid.
Plan charging around your off-peak electricity using the scheduling feature. For example, set the charger to charge your vehicle between the hours of 12am and 4am.
Yes, you can still order a Type 1 version of the Ohme Wall charger if your vehicle has a Type 1 connection. This is a special order, so please contact our support team to enquite about lead times and costs.
The Ohme Home Charger comes with a five-metre cable as standard. There is no option to upgrade the cable length. If you aren't sure if five metres is long enough to reach your vehicle from where the charger will be, take a look at our guide to EV charge point location.
No, the Ohme Home Wall Charger is only available as a 7.4kW unit. Most UK residential properties cannot make use of a 22kW charger anyway and 7.4kW is more than enough for the majority of EV drivers. Find out why in our guide to 22kW three-phase charging.
The Ohme is rated at IP54 for water ingress and is designed to work outside in all weathers.
Our engineers will complete the initial app setup on the day of installation. However, if you need to re-add your Ohme charger to the accompanying app post-install then you can follow the instructions in our Ohme Setup Guide.
No, the Ohme Home Charger is only available in black currently.
There is a 3-year warranty on the product supplied by Ohme. Any issues under warranty should be dealt with directly by Ohme.
The Ohme has its own SIM card to connect to the UK's mobile data network. It doesn't connect directly to your mobile, but your phone is a good indicator as to whether the Ohme will function correctly in your area.
The Ohme uses 3G and 4G across a variety of networks, so it works well in most areas in the UK but it is worth checking what your mobile phone signal is like in the exact location you want the charger. If it's not particularly strong, you may be better off with a charge point that connects to your home WiFi (assuming that is within range).
What an excellent service. The technician was very competent and explained everything he was doing and kept things clean and tidy. I'd highly recommend this service to anyone. Terry - Warrington
They guide you through the whole process from choosing a charger, a really smart app to determine the installation cost which they stick to and then a really neat and tidy installation. John - Winchester
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.
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.
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.
Typically this is 3-4 weeks after payment if you are claiming the Government OZEV Grant and a little quicker if you aren't. The main factors that affect your installation date are your remote site survey completion time, OZEV Grant application, 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 and providing your OZEV Grant application evidence when we ask for it.
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 vehicle listings are 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!
Smart Home Charge is a nationwide installer, covering England, Scotland and Wales. We have experienced engineers covering all major cities and regions. We have limited capacity in some remote areas, but we will always advise you of availability and any expected lead time before you start your survey.
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. We have a number of setup guides, reviews, and troubleshooting articles on our website that may help or you can contact the manufacturer directly.
As OZEV-approved installers, we are able to help you apply for the £350 Grant supplied by the Government towards to the cost of your EV charge point installation. 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. To learn more, read our guide to the OZEV Grant and eligibility.
