Definitions - The Essentials

Solar Icon

I want a charger with the cable permanently attached

Some chargers have the charging cable permanently attached (often called tethered), while other products only have a socket. Some people find it more convenient to have the cable permanently attached so it is easy to access.

Solar Icon

I don't want the cables on show when I'm not charging my car

Some people prefer products that do not have a charging cable permanently attached or products that hide the cable for a neater finish.

Solar Icon

I want a charger that looks good

Some products are better looking than others.

Definitions - Connectivity

Solar Icon

Show me chargers that have a Wi-Fi connection

For the charger’s smart features to function, like scheduling, you need a WiFi connection. In addition, this is needed for firmware updates and remote diagnostics.

Solar Icon

Show me chargers that use a mobile signal

Most chargers use WiFi but others use a mobile data connection (like your phone does) instead. This can be more reliable than a WiFi connection.

Solar Icon

Show me chargers that also have Bluetooth

Some products also include Bluetooth as an extra way to control the device. This is usually in addition to WiFi.

Definitions - Connectivity

Solar Icon

I want to remote lock/unlock the charger via the app

This feature allows you to "lock" the charge point via the phone app to prevent unwanted use.

Solar Icon

I want the charger to work with a time-of-use energy tariff like Octopus Agile

A time of use energy tariff, such as Octopus Agile, has regular price changes that reflect the wholesale price. Some products have built-in software to help you make the most of a tariff like this.

Solar Icon

I’d like to plan when my car starts and stops charging, such as overnight

Many chargers allow you to set up a “charging window”, such as between 1am and 4am. This is handy if you want your vehicle charged at certain times or if you have cheaper electricity prices overnight, for example.

Definitions - Other

Solar Icon

I don't want an earth rod installing or any additional monitoring equipment

For safety reasons, some products need a metal rod (an earth rod) installing into the ground at your property or an external monitoring device such as the Matt-e. However, a number of chargers now include built-in protection which avoids this, resulting in a neater finish.

Solar Icon

I want to use my EV charger with my solar panels

If you have solar panels, you may want to consider a product that can use any excess energy produced to charge your EV. But think about how often your vehicle is parked during the day to make use of this feature.

Solar Icon

Show me chargers that are eligible for the £350 Grant

Many smart chargers are eligible for a grant from the Government to help with the cost of purchase and installation

Solar Icon

Show me chargers available on finance

Smart Home Charge offers flexible finance offers on some chargers to help spread the cost of purchase and installation.
