EV Charging Installation Experts
O&D Electrical Ltd are Approved EV Charger Installers by the Office for Low Emmision Vehicles.
We are also an approved Installation partner for ROLEC EV, though we can install any EV Charger brand or model.
At O&D ElectricalEV, our expert advisors can help you choose the best EV home charger for you. Whether it’s the convenience of a tethered charge point or the flexibility of a socketed one, O&D ElectricalEV has you covered.
A tethered charging point has its own integrated cable, whereas a socketed point requires a separate cable connecting with each use.
If you’re unsure of which electric car charging solution you’d prefer, please contact our expert advisors to discuss the right option for you.
HomeSmart Socketed WallPod
The socketed HomeSmart WallPod offers a flexible and future proof EV home charger for all drivers.
Socketed EV charging points have a built-in IEC 62196 (Type 2) charging socket, allowing you to connect either a J1772 (Type 1) or an IEC 62196 (Type 2) public charging cable, depending on vehicle make and model.
A socketed option provides flexibility: by simply swapping the cable, you can charge every PHEV/EV vehicle on the market.
Ensuring that you have the right cable you can simply plug in, charge and drive away.
HomeSmart Tethered WallPod
The tethered HomeSmart WallPod offers EV drivers a quick and convenient way of charging their vehicle at home.
Tethered charging points come with either a J1772 (Type 1) or IEC 62196 (Type 2) 5-metre cable permanently attached.
A tethered option provides a simple solution when it comes to charging your vehicle at home.
Simply unwind the cable and plug into your vehicle. Once charging is complete, remove the plug from the vehicle and rewind back around the unit.
Standard Home Installation Requirements
To qualify for a standard home installation, the following criteria must be met. Extra charges may apply if the installation differs from the terms below.
A standard installation includes:
Installation of circuit cable up to a distance of 10 metres (clipped direct). This is the cable from your consumer unit to the charge point location.
Installation of the charge point to a permanent structure. E.g. masonry wall, post.
A spare way on the consumer unit and space adjacent to install a separate RCD unit for the charge point.
No groundworks. We can carry out groundworks but this must be agreed and quoted prior to installation date.
Earthing arrangements and bonding must comply with current regulations (IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition)
The incoming supply must be adequate enough to allow the additional load of an Electric Vehicle Charging Point.
Typical Setup Home Usage
The installation of Home Charging Points has led to the rapid growth and popularity of electric vehicle (EV) ownership, throughout the UK.
