OUR INSTALLATION PRICES ARE A GUIDE

The prices on our website for an EV charger installation are a rough guide to help you choose a product that best suits your budget. This is the minimum cost for any installation, but your final quote will depend on a number of factors including:

  1. Cable length - how much extra cable is required to connect your charger to the mains.
  2. Extra equipment - some installations require extra protective equipment such as a Type A RCBO and/or earth rod.
  3. Complexity - depending on the cable route and other factors, our in-house technicians will assess how much time and labour is required to complete the installation.

Every installation and quote is different, which is why we ask you to complete an Online Site Survey so we can give you an accurate and honest quote for your own home installation. 

WHAT DO THE WEBSITE PRICES INCLUDE?

As mentioned above, the prices on the website are a rough guide only and you will need to complete an Online Site Survey to get an accurate quote for your home installation. The prices on the website include:

  1.  The charger (not including delivery)
  2.  Our Basic Installation Package - this is the minimum cost for any installation, but yours could be more.
  3.  The £350 OLEV Grant is already deducted* - we assume you are eligible for the £350 Government OZEV Grant. If you are not eligible, you will not be able to claim the £350.

*Tesla Wall Connector is not eligible for the £350 OZEV Grant

HOW DO I START THE ONLINE SITE SURVEY AND GET A QUOTE?

  1. To get started, click "Request A Quote" on your preferred charger
  2. Fill in the short form. 
  3. We will email and text you a link to your guided Online Site Survey
  4. Follow the instructions and take the photos requested

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.

Stylish and simple to use
The Wallbox Pulsar Plus is one of the best-selling EV charge points and it’s easy to understand why. It looks good, has a user-friendly app to control your charging schedules, and all at a competitive price.
Description Here
Compact and intuitive
The Wallbox Pulsar Plus balances simplicity, style and smart charging features without breaking the bank.
Small and lightweight
+

The compact and minimalist design means the Wallbox Pulsar Plus offers a smart look without drawing too much attention.

Dimensions - H166 x W163 x D82mm

WiFi and Bluetooth
+

The Pulsar Plus incorporates both Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, giving you control over your charge point scheduling, as well as enabling over-the-air updates that improve reliability and features. In addition, Bluetooth is an excellent back-up to connect to your Wallbox in the event your WiFi is temporarily unavailable.

LED indicator
+

The Wallbox LED light ring helps you quickly identify the status of the charge point, such as charging, waiting to charge or if there's an error.

Built-in earthing protection
+

Some charge points require the installation of a copper earth rod, or alternative device, at your property for safety reasons. But this can also add complexity and extra cost to the job. The Wallbox Pulsar Plus avoids the need for this thanks to its built-in PEN fault detection feature.

7.4kW power output
+

The Wallbox Pulsar Plus is capable of charging your vehicle at 7.4kW, which adds up to 30 miles of range each hour (vehicle dependent).

Convenient 5-metre cable
+

The Wallbox Pulsar Plus is a tethered charge point, which means its integrated cable is permanently attached. The Wallbox cable length is five metres as standard.

A simple app that puts you in control
The myWallbox app lets you decide how and when your car is charged. Want to charge overnight when your electricity prices are cheaper? No problem.
Charge scheduling
+

Choose when your car is charged. This allows you to take advantage of any cheaper rates your electricity provider offers, helping to reduce the cost of car charging.

Remote lock/unlock
+

Worried about strangers "pinching" your electricity via your EV charger? It's very unlikely, but you can make it impossible by using the remote locking feature located in the myWallbox app.

Instant charge
+

Need your car to charge now? If your EV is plugged in, simply open the myWallbox app from anywhere in the world and start an instant charge.

Power management
+

You can adjust the rate at which your vehicle charges, such as reducing the rate from 32-amps to 16-amps. It's a feature few will need, but a handy addition nonetheless.

Charge monitoring and history
+

See what your Wallbox is doing in real time, check that it is charging when it should, and review past charging sessions to get a cost estimate.

Over-the-air updates
+

The Wallbox uses your home internet connection to get firmware and software updates, so it improves over time with bug fixes and new features.

Wallbox Pulsar Plus FAQs
Is there a set-up and troubleshooting guide for the Wallbox Pulsar Plus?
+

Yes there is, you can find them under the guides section of our website or by clicking the links below:

Can I get a Type 1 version of the Wallbox Pulsar Plus?
+

Smart Home Charge does not stock or install the Type 1 version of the Wallbox Pulsar Plus. 

Can I get a different cable length for the Wallbox Pulsar Plus?
+

There is a longer 7-metre cable, but this is only available on the more expensive 22kW version of the unit, which most customers cannot make the most of. If you'd prefer a longer cable, you may be better off with an untethered product, such as the Sync EV, and purchasing a charging cable separately. If you're interested in the 22kW version of the Wallbox Pulsar Plus with the 7-metre cable, please call our support team on 03333449234 so they can assist.

Can I order a 22kW version of the Wallbox Pulsar Plus?
+

Yes. You can upgrade to the more powerful 22kW version but most UK properties cannot meet the electricity supply requirements for this. In addition many EVs in the UK are limited to charging at 7.4kW or less at home, which means you may not benefit from a 22kW three-phase charge point. Find out if you can have a 22kW charge point here.

Is the Wallbox Pulsar Plus “weather-proof”?
+

The Wallbox Pulsar Plus is made with a high-quality plastic to protect it from the elements and is rated at IP54 for water ingress. That means it will perform perfectly well in the British weather.

How do I add the Wallbox Pulsar Plus to the myWallbox app?
+

Our engineers will help you do this on installation day, but if you need to re-add the Wallbox to the app for troubleshooting reasons then read our How to Set Up the Wallbox Pulsar Plus guide.

Can I get the Wallbox Pulsar Plus in different colours?
+

Yes, the Wallbox Pulsar Plus is available in Black or White

What is the warranty for the Wallbox Pulsar Plus?
+

There is a three-year warranty on the Pulsar Plus supplied by Wallbox. Any issues under warranty should be dealt with by Wallbox direct.

Installation made simple
Whether its our product reviews, remote site surveys, honest quotes, or in-house engineers, Smart Home Charge makes EV charger installation seamless and straightforward.

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 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.

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 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!

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. 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.

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. We have a number of setup guides, reviews, and troubleshooting articles on our website that may help or you can contact the manufacturer directly.

Will you process my OZEV Grant claim?
+

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.

A really excellent service, from selecting the wall charging unit, to getting it installed and working. My only feedback on the Wallbox Pulsar Plus is that it is somewhat frustrating that ...you can't turn off the light on the unit. Its always on, which is a bit too attention seeking when on the front of your house. Otherise it seems great.

The process was pretty straightforward, everything was well explained so we knew what to expect. Only slight gripe was I filled in the same information more than once, or filled info at a la...ter point that I could have just provided up front. The engineers were very polite, friendly and professional - they did a great job in making the installation really neat, making an effort to hide cabling as much as poss. They tidied up afterwards with a dustpan and brush, obviously a vacuum would have done it better. The charger itself looks really fantastic, seems to work with ease, and the whole process has been no stress at all, even when there's had to he some changes - the customer services team were on it. Two thumbs up.

I'm delighted with the whole process. Dealing with Smart Home Charge was straightforward and the communication from them was excellent. The team who fitted the charger was very efficient and... customer-friendly (particularly in helping to set up the app-based controls).
