EO Charging home chargers
EO Charging’s line-up starts with the EO Mini: priced from £295, it'll deliver between 3.6 and 7kW of power, which would charge the latest Nissan Leaf e+ in as little as nine hours.
Measuring 175mm high, 125mm wide and 95mm deep, EO Charging claims that the EO Mini is ‘the smallest fast charger on the market’. This should make it a discreet addition to your driveway, and it’s available in a range of seven colours to help it blend in with your home.
Next up is the EO Basic: this is priced from £345, and the company says it can supply power at 3.6, 7, 11 and 22kW depending on the current it can draw from your property. At this top rate, you could fully charge a Jaguar I-Pace in a little over four hours.
It’s only available in white, and is a good deal larger than the EO Mini with dimensions of 360mm, 165mm and 155mm.
Top of the company’s range is the EO Mini Pro: this costs from £495, and is the same size as the EO Mini save for 30mm of extra depth.
It can only provide 3.6 or 7kW of power, however it’s a smart charger that is compatible with the JuiceNet smartphone app. This allows you to you to schedule charging sessions, monitor charging remotely, and receive notifications when your vehicle has finished charging.
It'll also enable you to charge up on off-peak energy tariffs, keeping your running costs down by using electricity at its cheapest, usually overnight.
All prices include the OLEV Government grant of £500, which you’ll qualify for if you have off-street parking and have bought (or are buying) a plug-in car after 1 October 2016. The company’s installing partners will apply for this discount on your behalf: all you need to do is answer a series of basic questions.
All three chargers also come with a three-year warranty.
