Tell us about your home charging routine

I plug in 2-3 times a week to 80% with Octopus’s off-peak rate. Once every couple of months I do a long trip so I’ll boost up to 100%. I usually have the charger in ECO+ mode so if there’s any excess solar I make use of it.


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

Same again!


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

Octopus Energy: Intelligent Octopus Go – it’s linked to my wife’s CUPRA which is on a 13amp charger. My Mustang was a bit hit and miss with my account being frozen, this works out well for us as the CUPRA charges slower so Octopus give us bigger charging windows. I would highly recommend Octopus, they’ve been great for me.


Are you part of a charger-sharing scheme for those who don’t have their own charger?

No I’m not. Where I live there would be no point, there are 10 high speed chargers within 3 miles of my house and you can’t walk anywhere from where I live.
