Types of different Electric Charging Points

Zappi Tethered

Tethered charge point

A tethered electric charging point comes with a long cable attached to the unit and allows you to connect to either a type 1 or type 2 connecter. The major benefit of a tethered charging unit is that you can plug straight into the car but are limited on the connector type.

The majority of electric vehicles manufactured in the UK come with a type 2 connecter but it is always best to check. We will talk through all of the options available with you to ensure you get the correct charging point.

Zappi Standard

Socketed charge point

A socketed electric charging does not come with a cable and is just a dedicated charging station. They are fitted with all the correct safety devices so that you, your car and home are protected.  The benefit of a socketed charge point is that it is universal and can be used with any charger.

This helps when choosing your vehicle as you can accommodate all electric vehicles so if you decide to change your car you are not limited on the connector. We will talk through all of the options available with you to ensure you get the correct charging point.

The benefit of using a car charger vs a standard socket?

Charging an electric car through a standard plug is the slowest charging method available. Unless you already have an outdoor plug near your driveway, plugging into a standard socket means running a cable out through an open window or door.

It is also not recommended as your primary charging method because standard sockets are not ideally suited to supplying high levels of power for a long time. Extension reels or cables should not be used at all, as they are not intended to carry full rated current for lengthy periods and can overheat.

Newer models also typically offer smart features that allow you to track you’re spending and switch the charger on/off remotely, meaning a home charger will give you extra information and control, as well as the extra speed
