We’ve just taken on a new EV & full hybrid home charge point…
Because it provides something different to the existing range of home charge point’s we install.
So, what makes the ‘Hypervolt Home 2.0’ different?
Let’s cut to the chase. The main reason is. It’s got an option for a 10-metre tethered (attached) cable, which no other charge point we’ve come across provides.
The entry level has a 5-metre cable. But pay a little more you can get it with a 7.5-metre cable, and then pay a little bit more again and hey presto you’ve got it with a 10-metre cable.
Why’s this important?
Because not everyone can park close to where their charge point is located.
In this situation, people who need a longer cable to reach from the charge point to the car, have been buying a socketed charge point and then spending a further circa £200 on a 10-metre cable.
The Hypervolt solves this problem and takes the hassle away of having to un-socket (could get stolen) your charging cable every day, whilst providing a neat wrap around solution.
Aside of this, it’s a bloody good stylish charge point and represents decent value for money.
We’d compare it to a tethered Myenergie Zappi, although it’s quite a bit smaller and comes with solar connectivity (as well as load management) as standard.
Interestingly, when you compare the base model Hypervolt to a tethered Zappi, the Hypervolt is better value. But if you want solar connectivity, it then becomes much better value.
Even the 10-metre version is only a little more than a standard tethered Zappi with solar.
Couple of other important things. It’s 7Kw, type 1 or 2, UK manufactured, 3-year parts & labour warranty, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth, built in earthing and has a great app (with lock out and timed charging).
Currently there is a downside if you want to connect to battery stored electricity, it’s not ready yet. Although they tell us, it will be in their next product revision and can be easily fitted retrospectively.
As it’s manufactured in the UK, Hypervolt’s CEO has assured it’ll always be available within 2 weeks.
