I think you can use both for AC charging. I think DC is only on the drivers side.Dumb question of the day. Which side is which from a charging port perspective on a U.K. the car?
Agree on your door comment.
Doesn't the PP have wireless updates and an app? Haven’t considered the regulated charging. Is this something I need? Think pp now comes with a 7.5m cable ( used to be 4.8m or so). Not sure what solarpv is but don’t have solar panels and won’t be considering the unless the incentives start again, and payback time reduces.
Consider using your phone as an hotspot to allow the zappi to update its firmware.I have had a zappi v2 for previous six months and it has been flawless. Mine is located in a underground car park (under my apartment block) and so it is unable to connect to a network (which requires a hub device), so I can't use any apps or update its firmware.
Your cente pier is presently 430mm (from what i can see (2 x 215mm brick approx)Middle brick post was an option as this was would I could chart outside also. Only worry on this is if i did fit doors that middle post may get modified!
The Andersen is only really worth getting for the aesthetics. It does have an Alexa skill thoughIs Anderson worth double if you forget aesthetics? If inside the garage not so worried as long as it wraps around for tidyness. Will check zappi out this evening.
WiFi signal good in garage as have by complete WiFi and have a disc in the garage as have a cctv camera in there and needed the disc to get this working.
The other option (if you're a cheapskate like me) is to buy the Ohme charger from Octopus which is discounted to £199. I'm getting an electrician to fit a Commando socket to use with it. The Ohme is fully integrated into Octopus' Agile tariff so knows all of the charging costs for each 30-minute slot of the next 24 hours and can pick the cheapest charge times.Having spent a little time researching this, I think I've concluded that one of the better options is the Octopus EO Mini Pro, provided by Octopus Energy. I'm already an Octopus customer, so don't need to charge provider for this. Plus, the EO Mini Pro seems to be quite functional and takes advantage of Octopus Energy's 5.5 per kWh tariff between 12.30am and 4.30am. The Anderson wins hands down for Aesthetics, but a 7kWh charger for £500 after factoring in the grant seems good value. The customer service thus far has also been top notch. I just hope Octopus Energy now get their backsides in gear regarding migrating me to a smart meter to take advantage of the tariff. I'm a little worried that Covid excuses will see the install take place after my new Taycan 4S arrives in early Dec.
Must admit I’m thinking sticking with the PP as I don’t know enough about the others to differentiate!If I was you I would stick the Pod-Point on the back wall in the centre. I would get an untethered unit with a 7.5m length cable. This will easily reach the port on the Taycan even if you park backwards. All chargers work with the Taycan.
