First charger lasted about a month before packing up. Second one has some 'features'. Lights on box don't correspond with what the manual says. Sometimes the charger switches on/ off every 20 seconds for several minutes. Charging sometimes switches off the e-Pedal in our Leaf (odd but true!).
The app seems to work okay.
It's been hard getting EO to sort out the problems.

I bought this primarily for the unobtrusive design. So many of the home chargers on the market are large unsightly chunks of plastic.However, since using it for a few months I now think one of its key features is the ease of control via its phone app.

We have been installing EO products for the last 2 years and still have not had 1 call back. Excellent product reliability

Looks great, app looks good and charges very well and reliably. Car comms isn't always great, reads as if battery empty. Early days it kept going offline and back online, was a bug which seemed to resolve after feedback to juicenet. Notifications good too

How does this work?
Electricity tariffs designed for electric car drivers like the Go Tariff from Octopus Energy can
save the average driver up to £240 per year. A smart charger can schedule your charge to start and
stop in the off-peak period, so you don’t have to plug
in at midnight or get out of bed in the early hours to unplug. Some chargers can schedule for the
hours when our grid is at it’s cleanest instead if you prefer.
What is Smart Charging?
This charger will schedule your charge overnight to make the most of an off-peak electricity tariff
like Go from Octopus Energy. You will usually use an app to tell your charger when you would like
the car fully charged and it will handle the start and
stop t ime for you. Some chargers will schedule for the hours when our grid is at it’s cleanest, if
What is Solar Charging?
If you have solar or are thinking of getting solar this is a must-have. You can ask this charger to
wait until it notices that your home is generating more solar power than you’re using. Then it will
switch on charging to soak up your excess solar power
into your car.
What is Fuse Protection?
Fuse Protection (also known as ‘Load Balancing’) reduces the power to your car if your home is
getting close to it’s fuse limit. Once you are connected to your installer, they will be able to
advise whether Fuse Protection is important for your home,
or not. Learn more about Fuse Protection here.
