Which company installed it and would you recommend them?
Can’t remember the name of the installer but we found them on the Tesla list of approved installers.
How much did you pay for your unit and installation?
Why did you purchase an Easee home charging unit?
We wanted a non- tethered unit that would fit in the space available and was easy to use.
List 3 or more points that you like about the charging unit.
- It’s non-tethered
List 3 or more points that you don’t like about the charging unit.
- The small rubber flap that covers the charging socket doesn’t fit too well and sometimes drops slightly open.
Outline any faults you have experienced with the unit.
We’ve had no faults with the charger.
Tell us about your home charging routine.
I usually charge during the cheap four hour night rate. This gives me about 45% charge. I charge to 100% over the weekend and then top up usually once during the week.
If you were buying a new charging unit now, what would you buy and why?
I would probably buy the same unit. It has one small niggle that I suspect most people wouldn’t bother about, it’s easy to use and conveniently located at the front of our garage.
Tell us about your electricity provider and tariff. Would you recommend them?
We were dead lucky, we were already with Octopus and changed over to the Octopus Go tariff on a Sunday evening. The cost went up the day after! We pay 5p/kWh between 00:30 and 04:30, we pay about 24p/kWh at other times and our tariff is fixed at this price for 12 months.
