'18 Zoe ZE 40 R110 + '21 VW ID.4 1st
I think I just realized I might be stupid... We've had an EV for 8-9 months, and in that time I've seen the "Commando plug + Ohme cable with Octopus discount" home charging solution recommended probably 10-20 times. For some reason in my head going the commando route meant more juice than the 3-pin we currently use, but less than a full home chargepoint installation with someone like PodPoint/Zappi. However, I just realized that 240v through a 32a commando plug = 7.68 kw.... Does the "commando+ohme" route provide the same charging speed as a standard home chargepoint? I have a quote from a local sparky for £350 for an "EV Commando Plug Install" - that plus the discounted Ohme cable at £199 looks to be cheaper than many of the other tethered charging solutions we've seen lately... Probably even a better option for us since in 1-3 years we'll be moving house, and it would be cheaper to just get another 32a commando plug installed at the new place and use our existing cable... Am I missing something?
