Price from: £595

Connection type: tethered or untethered

The EO Mini Pro 2 is a compact, untethered charger. It’s ideal if you’re short on space or just fancy a small charge point on your property.

2. BP Pulse

Price from: £699
kW output: up to 7kW
Connection type: untethered

BP Pulse’s home charger is pretty simple; just plug in and charge.

3. Ohme Home Pro

Ohme’s Home Pro is all about giving you data on your charge. It features a built-in LCD display that shows information on your car’s battery level and current charging rate. These can also be accessed within the dedicated Ohme app.

The firm can also sell you a ‘Go’ portable charging cable. This uses the same technology to keep your charging info consistent no matter where you choose to recharge.

4. Wallbox Pulsar Plus

Price from: £737
kW output: up to 22kW
Connection type: tethered

Though the Wallbox Pulsar Plus looks small, it packs a punch — offering up to 22kW of charging power.

If you want an idea of how your charger will look fitted before you buy, Wallbox has an augmented reality app on its website to give you a virtual preview.

5. EVBox Elvi

Price from:on request
kW output: up to 22kW
Connection type: tethered or untethered

The EVBox Elvi is another of a growing number of chargers offering up to 22kW charging at home.

EVBox has designed the charger to be easy to upgrade as well. This should mean lower costs in the future as the technology moves forwards.

6. Andersen A2

Price from:£1,099
kW output: up to 22kW
Connection type: tethered

Andersen claims its A2 is the smartest out there, and there’s no denying it looks the part. Its chic styling can be customised with a variety of colours and even with a wood finish if you wish.

There’s more to it than just looking good, though. The A2 can offer up to 22kW of charging as well.

7. Myenergi Zappi

Price from: £695
kW output: up to 22kW
Connection type: tethered

There’s more to the Zappi than just plugging your car in and letting it charge. The charger has a special ‘Eco’ mode that can run using just the power from solar panels or wind turbines (if you have these installed on your property).

It’s possible to set charging schedules on the Zappi as well. This will let you recharge your electric car at off-peak times (when the cost per kWh of electricity is lower) with an Economy 7 energy tariff.

8. Rolec WallPod:EV HomeSmart

Price from: £549
kW output: up to 7.2kW
Connection type: tethered

The Rolec WallPod:EV HomeSmart is focused on giving users easy control through their smartphones.

The app can automatically be set to charge your vehicle at off-peak rates, as well as allow you to monitor your car’s charging info. You can set your own preferred charging scheduled, too – handy if you plan to commute using your electric car.

Get up to £350 off the cost of a home EV charger

If you have a home EV charger installed, you can currently get up to £350 towards the cost of your unit from the Government. This should be applied at the point of purchase by your chosen provider.

That said, the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme is set to end on 31st of March 2022. This is the cutoff date for the installation of your charger as well, not the purchase. As a result, providers may have an earlier cutoff date depending on availability.
