Which company installed it and would you recommend them?

Pod Point – yes, they were great from the initial survey through to the finished job.


How much did you pay for your unit and installation?



Why did you purchase this particular unit?

This unit is included with the purchase of the Jaguar I-PACE. However, I’d have chosen this unit even if I had to buy one anyway. I like how it looks and the way in which it works along with the app which is very good .

  • Nothing.


Outline any faults you have experienced with the unit.

Only one, it displayed a red light and didn’t start to charge. I just reset and it was fine again.


Tell us about your home charging routine.

I use it daily. It’s plugged in when the car returns from its 42 mile round trip from work. It’s set to charge from 00:00 to 5:00am, however, it doesn’t need that long and just works itself out. The car does a minimum of 210 miles a week when it’s just going to work. It’s also used in the evenings from time to time, then every other weekend when it does a further 200 miles minimum.


If you were buying a new charging unit now, what would you buy and why?

I’m happy with the Solo 3 so it would be another of those.


Tell us about your electricity provider and tariff. Would you recommend them?

I’m currently with British Gas. We fixed a while ago on their 20p tariff. This is until September, so although we don’t get the cheaper 5 hours overnight, overall, it’s still a lot cheaper than some are paying with the increase in the price cap. When it ends I shall look for the best EV tariff at the time, if there are any deals to be had.
