Long-time lurker, first-time poster here 馃憢

Spent the last year daily driving the Corsa Elite Nav Premium 1.2 petrol but next month will be switching to the Corsa E SRI Nav Premium.

Thought I'd use this space to share my experience, compare the differences and help anyone else concidering making the switch.

First headache is getting a home charge-point installed. More on that to follow...

We had no problem getting our pod point installed, my wife has the corsa e nav premium thing and loves it to bits

I looked at the Pod Point, Zappi and Anderson chargers but unfortunately none of them will fit on my limited wallspace. It's left me with two options so far:

  1. Erect a post in my front lawn area and mount the charger to it, giving me freedom to choose one of the above chargers.
  2. Go with a smaller charger such as the SyncEV, which will fit snugly between my meter box and window.

I'm driving towards option 2 right now as reviews seem positive for the SyncEV and it's the least intrusive.

We have a large front dive, so no problems
Look at the hypervolt charger. These are getting good press at the moment, are reasonably priced and smaller than the zappi and Anderson chargers. It may be worth considering.

it鈥檚 certainly the one I鈥檇 prob buy at the moment. I have a podpoint which was installed a couple of hrs ago. It does the job but isn鈥檛 particularly smart, it only recently got scheduled charging. The zappi is good, particularly if you have solar but there are supply issues currentl. The Andersen鈥檚 are beautiful but hideously overpriced for what they are and not particularly technically advanced.

Yeah I looked at the Hypervolt too and it seems like a great option, but like the others, it wouldn't fit on my wall, so I'd need to erect a post to install one. The SyncEV is half the size of the Hypervolt and about the limit of what I can fit onto my wall. I'll post a picture to show the area I'm working with.
Superimposed the SyncEV with approximate dimensions onto the wall. Suppose it's feasible to mount a bigger charger beneath the window, but I'm guessing those pesky regulators would have something to say about that?

I'm guessing that's the neighbours wall to the left. Can't you ask them if they would be ok with it or have you already asked?

Carl,
We have a large front dive
Oh. :(
Well, you could always move. ;)
