Ohme announce new untethered ePod EV charger
The ePod is said to be compatible with all electric vehicles, and can help save motorists money with smart off-peak tariffs
Ohme, a company that specialises in smart electric vehicle (EV) charging technology, has announced the release of its new ePod untethered charger, and is compatible with all electric vehicles.
The ePod joins Ohme's existing Home Pro smart charger, which helped the company become one of the UK's fastest growing smart charging companies in 2022.
It features the same technology as the Home Pro, but in an untethered package, giving customers the choice between tethered and untethered charging for the first time.
Using the Ohme app, ePod customers can also connect with the national grid in real-time, and automatically adjust charging for drivers to take advantage of low price charging with smart off-peak tariffs.
For example, the company says charging a Volkswagen ID. Buzz from zero to 100 percent with an Ohme ePod on a smart off-peak tariff, such as from Octopus Intelligent, could cost just £7.70 compared to more than £26 on the Standard Variable Tariff.
Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation on the National Grid is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact.
The firm says it has been designed to expand Ohme's reach into new markets, particularly in the new build environment.
The company has already made strides in these new markets, becoming the official charger provider for various developers such as Harron Homes and Hollins Homes.
Ohme is also involved in the House of the Future project at the University of Salford, alongside Saint-Gobain, Barratt and Bellway, to provide low carbon homes of the future.
The ePod comes following Ohme becoming the official charger provider for the Volkswagen Group in the UK, as well as Motability Operations, the largest fleet operator in the UK.
