What type of electric vehicle charge point do I need?
We offer a wide range of products, but for charging your electric vehicle at home, there are two main options and these are tethered or untethered charge points. Both do the same job in terms of efficiency, they just work in a slightly different way.
- A tethered unit has a 5m cable attached as standard so you plug from the unit into your car, much like using the pumps at the filling station. You will need either a type 1 or type 2 tethered unit, depending on the make of vehicle.
- An untethered or universal unit comes without a cable so it is suitable for all makes and model of electric and plug-in hybrid on the road. For this option you use a type 1 or type 2 public charging lead depending on your vehicle.
