The first charge point on the market to integrate with solar panels
See the movement of energy through your house to your car using the MyEnergi app
Sync your charging to an off-peak electricity tariff
Homes with a low fuse limit used to have to settle for a Slow charger - no longer. This Fast charger lowers power to your car before you blow a fuse. Now you can safely Fast charge without a worry. See product specifics in the description.
Control your charger remotely, get updates on your phone, and automatically charge at the cheapest hours. Smart charging and the right off-peak electricity tariff saves the average driver £234 per year. See product specifics in the description.
This charger speaks to your rooftop solar panels. You're often generating more solar than you're using at home, so rather than send this into the grid, send it into your car. See product specifics in the description.
The Zappi 2.0 in more detail…
Zappi is the original solar charge point – MyEnergi pioneered the method of Solar Charging, and they have been perfecting it ever since.
Designed and built in Lincolnshire, UK, the Zappi charger gives drivers with solar panels the ability to only power up with home-grown, clean electrons. The ultimate off-grid solution for energy and transport.
However… the Zappi charger is absolutely not all about solar, and comes with the great features that you would expect from top spec charger.
Compatible with all plug-in vehicles
Choose for your Zappi to come with a cable attached (tethered), or with a socket for you to plug in your own cable (untethered). If you choose the tethered version, ask your installer if you require a Type 1 or Type 2 connector.
Control your charging and monitor the flow of electricity through your home with the MyEnergi app
Connect to your home wifi via the MyEnergi Hub. The Hub is included with all purchases eligible for the OLEV grant, or can be bought from your installer, or directly from MyEnergi
Available as a Fast (7kW) charge point but is capable of lowering the power output if necessary (see Load Balancing, and Solar Integration)
If you have a three-phase power connection to your home (most homes are single-phase) the 22kW version, which will charge at up to 3 times the speed of the Fast version. Your installer can tell you if you have a single-phase or 3-phase connection at home.
Zappi will reduce power to the car if your usage gets close to your home’s fuse limit.
Now those with low fuse limits can charge at full power most of the time, instead of having to settle for a slow charger
Eco and Eco+ mode prioritise your excess rooftop solar generation over energy from the grid. Eco mode charges your car at minimum power (1.4kW) until it detects excess solar generation. Eco+ mode won’t charge your car at all, unless you’re generating excess solar
Zappi's software has been designed for use alongside home battery storage and solar hot water diversion systems. Allowing you to set a priorities for the storage of solar - either going first to your car, your battery or your hot water tank.
Most chargers can require an earth rod (a metal pole) to be sunk vertically into the ground near your charger, especially if the charger is installed outside. The Zappi, however, has in-built technology that intends to do the same job as an earth rod.

The Zappi 2 is fantastic. We have been using it for a couple of weeks and can now easily charge our Nissan Leaf from our solar PV. We are about to get our smart meter installed and will then use the Zappi to charge at the Octopus Go overnight tariff.

Dreadful charger. Does not do what it says. You are supposed to choose what % of solar PV energy you want to use, but it ignores settings and charges on expensive daytime electricity. Build quality useless..display panel falling apart after 12 mths
