Here’s what some of our owners have to say about Pod Point:


‘It works well, the App is so easy to use and connects to the internet. Charging schedule programme is done on the charger instead of the car. It also shows how much it costs and is very accurate.’

‘PodPoint 7kW solo tethered charger. This charger is brilliant. I have set the permanent schedule charging for 21:30 to 02:30 to match my Octopus Go Faster tariff. I simply connect the MINI and the charger takes care of everything. It’s been a case of set once and go! The Pod Point app provides feedback on charging costs so that you know where you are. The indicator on the charger itself is brilliant. I would recommend a tethered charger for smaller battery EVs as there is less opening of the boot required for charging cables.’

‘I have a Pod Point 7kW. The whole process from start to finish was easy, the set was excellent. I love the schedule app and it seems very reliable so far.’
