What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Alfen Eve Pro-line – easy to use but no dedicated App. Would like to set timed charges but not possible, other than through the Hive App, which is, well, not the best.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus – useless, switched at the wrong time and can’t go on the lower rate so the standard tariff at 19 odd pence per kw. Not ideal but hopefully I can find a better deal soon.

 

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Pod Point, Tesco free, BP pulse – no issues to date, limited availability where I live but as I venture out further afield I’ll try more. Zap-Map is a must.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
N/A, company car.
