Tell us about your home charging routine.
I generally use Octopus Go cheap rate (5p/kWh) 0030-0430 for main charging and the solar panels in summer. Mileage per week extremely variable as I am retired but 9,000 miles covered last year. Tesla Superchargers and Destination chargers are reliable, so easy to use and free for my 2014 car. Other networks are generally awful, unreliable and difficult: two that I used last year in underground car parks required the use of mobile phone Apps but there was no mobile signal as they were underground! Doh!!!

 

If you were buying a new charging unit now, what would you buy and why?
Same again – a zappi 2.

 

Tell us about your electricity provider and tariff. Would you recommend them?
Octopus – cheap overnight charging (0030-0430).

 

Are you part of a charger-sharing scheme for those who don’t have their own charger?
No.
