Now that we are buying a second EV, I would like to buy a second 3-pin charging cable (we don't have a home charger installed). I was planning on buying another one from Amazon, but I remembered I can get a hefty discount on an Ohme cable since I am an Octopus customer. I am on Octopus Go, not Octopus Agile though, and I'm not sure what benefits the cable would give me. My understanding is the main benefit of the Ohme cable is linking it to Agile rates, and thus only charging when supply is cheap. Is there a reason to get an Ohme cable if I have no intention of switching to Agile? What if I need to use it on holiday, without any mobile connection - will the cable function as a "dumb" charging cable?
