Electric vehicles (EVs) are often supplied with a portable domestic charger, designed to charge the vehicle when access to a charging point is not possible. Rather confusingly, the units are commonly referred to as 'granny chargers', as it is a lead to use when visiting relatives such as your granny!
Conscious of the number of cheap non-compliant EV chargers on the market, we've carefully sourced this quality unit from a leading UK supplier. Unlike cheaper alternatives, the charger features a generous 5m cable, is limited for safety to the required 10A max charge rate and has an IP54 weatherproof rating.
The granny charger consists of a 13A UK plug, the charging unit, 5m total length of heavy duty cable and a type 2 connector. It simply plugs into a UK socket and any EV with a type 2 plug, to provide convenient charging.
For advanced functionality included a time delayed start time to take advantage of cheaper off-peak tariffs, adjustable charge rate, LCD display and extra tough cables, see our advanced granny charger.
