Pod Point EV Chargers – 3 great alternatives you never considered

If you’re new to the world of EV charging then there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of PodPoint. They, one of the more popular charger manufacturers. However, as with any charger there are alternatives that may be more suitable for you.

There are hundreds to choose from, but here, we’ve selected 3 of best alternatives based on our many years of experience.

EO Mini Pro 2

The smallest OLEV-approved EV charger, this little charger looks unobtrusive and discreet on the front of your home. In fact, you’ll barely notice it. Despite its diminutive size it comes packed with features and technology. This includes solar integration and load management plus. Both of these are in addition to it’s own App to manage and schedule charging. With 7.2kW of charging power it will charge your car as quickly as any other home charger. And, if that wasn’t enough, there’s a range of colours to choose from. If you want the smallest smart charger for your home, this is it!

Wallbox Pulsar Plus

Another compact charger but this time with its own charging cable. Manufactured by one of the world’s leading companies this has become the leading choice for many customers looking for a charger with its own charging cable. Cool LED lighting on the front clearly indicates its charging status and these chargers are available in ice white or midnight black. Unusually for an EV charger, these chargers are connected to their App using Bluetooth which makes connecting them to your phone a breeze. Looking for the best tethered charger? Look no further.

ProjectEv Pro Earth

If you want a charger that has serious looks on its side then this is for you. Traditionally-sized, this charger is another one that is packaged with technology. From solar integration to load management to wi-fi App control and even RFID. Like the Wallbox charger above, this charger does not need additional earthing from the charger itself meaning just one neat cable from the charger.* A side mounted charging socket ensures your charging cable is always tucked neatly away too. A sleek metallic silver and black front with LED charging ring indicator complete this charger’s impressive looks.

*All EV chargers require their own earthing. Some achieve this using an earth spike fitted into the ground below the charger with a connecting cable whilst some carry technology inside the charger to avoid this. Such chargers have a neater finish with only one wire connecting them instead of two.

    really professional service from start to finish- total time from initial order to install was 7 days. Sunita communicated by phone and email and was really helpful in choice of charger and on the technical issues re install. Install by Marcello who was prompt, careful, considerate and really neat... in his installation. Overall really excellent and sets a high standard for other companies!read more

    Excellent end to end service. I spoke to quite a few companies to get a quote for my EV charger installation. Chargebase were the most professional and helpful. My installation was not a straightforward one because of the location of my meter. The electrician that came to install my EV charger did... an amazing job and exceeded my expectations.read more

    Sunita and the team, installed my EV charger earlier this year and gave an excellent service. Our house was hit by lightning which blew much of the electrics and Sunita has been very helpful in sourcing a replacement charger and electrician to assist.

    Very good service from initial inquiry through installation and commissioning. Installation itself was done within a few days and the connection itself is small and neat. Would definitely recommend using Chargebase for anyone looking for a home charging point.
