    I had a Zappi 2 fitted and on first test, with a Teslar, it blew. We saw on the Teslar site some info about the cable between boards so sent the links and information with the report of blowing (18th Sept). My original installer could do nothing, then our car arrived a Kie e-Nire 4 with a 64Kw...
  2. General Charging Discussion
    Need some help deciding... I'm getting a Passat GTE next week and torn between getting a Zappi charger or Ohme Home Pro. Ideally I want the Zappi so that I have the option to add solar later, but currently the Ohme is the only charger that works with Intelligent Octopus. As I understand it...

    anyone else had this issue with the zappi home charge (untethered). i’ve had it along with my kia e-niro for 12 months, worked perfectly until this week. i plug my car in, it starts charging in the fast setting, 7kw. then after about 5 minutes of charging it stops charging and the zappi...

    Currently have a 2 year old BP Chargemaster 7kw home charger. Generally charge overnight on Octopus Go every 3-4 days. Local electrician recommended a Zappi when I first got an EV but the BP one came free with the car and I had no plans for solar at the time. May now be installing solar PV +...

    Hello, We have 2 EV cars, a Hyundai Kona Electric 2018 model 60kWh with single fase charger and a Zoë Q90 40kWh 3 fase charger, from 2017. We have a 3-fase Zappi v2 wallbox charger to charge the vehicles (one at the time) Offcourse a set of Solar panels to provide some cheap energy, 3-fase...
  6. General BMW EV Discussion
    Hi I bought my 225xe (2017 model) in the summer and had no problem charging on the 3 pin plug and at public chargers (when they are operational...). I decided to future proof my house and get a 7kw charger installed and ended up with a Zappi. However, it seems the Zappi does not like BMW...
  7. General Charging Discussion
    Hi, Trying to decide on a wall charger which is 50 meters away from the circuit box. I like the fact zappi 2 allows for 3 phase (mostly because of rcd and pen fault protection included) which is what I have but things are now adding up as I thought 5 core 6mm armoured cable was what is required...
  8. Tesla Model 3
    I have been considering the following: Zappi (I dont have solar panels) Ohme Pro 2 Wallbox Podpoint It's come down to Zappi vs Ohme Pro 2. Which is better and why please?

    Hi from mid-Wales. I've dipped my toe in the EV water with an e-Niro and so far it's pretty good. It seems to be very comfortable to drive, and no doubt I'll be discovering more and more about how to work it as time goes by. Initially I was a little cautious because of the apparent scarcity of...

    Hi there, New and first post. Have just placed an order for a VW id.3, which hopefully will be delivered in a couple of months. VW pushed us towards a podpoint, but home chargers are a murky world so any help or advice would be great! Have seen the zappi, EASEE and hypervolt but there's...

    I have 4.1kWp of solar and a new VW ID4 (no V2G unfortunately, and no battery in the house yet). I want to install a charger but I’m not sure whether to get Zappi or Ohme. I can plug the car in 3 days per week and overnight. I only need to charge the car once per week. Zappi charges from PV...

    My setup is 4.3Kw of solar connected to the house via a GivEnergy 3.6Kw hybrid inverter and 8.2kWh GivEnergy battery. I want my Zappi to prioritise solar, but as the CT sensor does not differentiate between energy from the PV and energy from the house battery, it can end up draining the house...
  13. Home Charging Installation
    Hi, I'm talking to a few electricians about fitting a home charger and have decided that, because of the complicated nature of the cable run, I will get my usual handy man to run the cable or run a draw chord in advance of the electricians coming to fit the charger - this should hopefully end...
  14. General EV Discussion
    Hello, I have been looking to buy an EV for couple of years now but I put the idea on hold as we weren't travelling much and even the ICE at home looked like a massive waste of money. I finally sold the car and now seriously looking to buy an EV replacement. In the meanwhile, I also registered...
  15. Kia Niro
    It is generally said that minimum generation needed to charge on eco+ with Zappi is 1.4 KW. 4+ charges even with 0.9 KW, which is good on cloudy days. Not sure if it is to do with 3 phase charging unit in 4+. Has anyone noticed that? My MG ZS charges only when generation is over 1.4 KW.
  16. General Charging Discussion
    I’ve got the impression that Harvi, which is presented by Myenergi as optional, is pressed as a concomitant sale to Zappi. Suppose I want to simplify my EV home charging installation (meaning one without Harvi and any other wireless gadgets) and that I can hard-wire two CT sensors (one for the...
  17. Home Charging Installation
    Hi - I'm about to get a Used Leaf 24 - looking for 7kw charger - have solar panels so apparently I need a zappi to take advantage of those. The zappi 2 requires no earthing, so cost should be reasonable. Any idea who is good to fit it? I saw earlier threads suggesting £600 install was alot -...
  18. Home Charging Installation
    Hi there. I have recently had a Zappi Myenergi home charger installed (professionally). Pleased with the charger itself and installation was all fine. However, when I charge the car it seems like a large percentage of the energy pull from the grid appears to go into the house (image attached)...
  19. Home Charging Installation
    I am still looking into a home charging unit , i hoped to put into ion my side wide so it can be used at the back of my house ( in garage) or at front in driveway . I am still waiting on Quotes because my smart meter has not been installed yet. This may mean it's not a standard installation...

    I've adapted some existing tech to automate Zappi boost charging during 'Plunge Pricing' on 'Octopus Agile'. But have discovered that it's far more useful than I originally imagined. Using a Smart Wi-Fi Plug to trigger the Zappi 'E-Sense' feature. I thought others might be interested in this...
