Each week we will be sharing our favourite EV chargers that are on the market right now. You might be relieved to know that there is a broad selection to choose from so if you are looking to go electric, you can rest assured that you will be in safe hands!
This week we are looking at the Zappi. Designed and made by myenergi based in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, the Zappi has had a lot of positive press and is one of the most popular brands in the UK when it comes to car charging. Available as a tethered and untethered unit, it is one of the larger EV charge points out there. It includes a lot of exciting high-tech features, and the cable storage is built-in which will save you needing to further purchase a dedicated cable dock for your wall. Zappi does not need an earth rod installing at your property as it has built-in protection.
Zappi is a smart EV charger with a difference. Not only does it operate as a traditional EV charger, it can also charge your EV using 100% FREE energy generated from your Solar PV or wind generation.
Here’s the SMART bit. zappi can charge for FREE using your PV charger during the day and be set to charge at the most economical times at night if you have preferred economy rates from your energy provider. All controllable by the myenergi APP.
No PV? No Problem!! If you don’t have a PV system, zappi can still operate like an ordinary EV charging station importing from the grid. You can always add your solar system later. How cool is that? It has never been easier to pave your way towards becoming a Net Zero Hero!
