Top 5 Home charging units – Spring 2022

Top 5 Home charging units - Spring 2022

Welcome to Electric Road’s all-new ‘Top 5 Home charging units.’

At Electric Road, our key objective is to be as useful as we possibly can be for those considering their first/next electric car and related products & services. Domestic charging units are obviously important for those who can charge at home and researching for the right one can be confusing given the increasing number available on the market.

 

Owner Ratings

Based on the hundreds of Owner Reviews we receive each month, we have extracted the top 5 highest-rated home charging units based on our new owner ratings system. From January 1st onwards, all owners have to provide a bolt rating out of 5 on their current charger within their review. We’ve then worked out the average rating for each home charging unit as indicated below with the Top 5.

 

We hope this summary of EV owners’ opinions will help you make the right decision when the time comes to purchase your first or next charging unit. The Top 5 Home charging units will be updated each quarter ensuring you have the latest trends from the Electric Road audience.
