The HomeSmart EV Overview
Your Home Charging
The versatile ROLEC WallPod:EV HomeSmart is a smart charging unit which has been designed to provide the user with an interactive EV charging solution for the home.
HomeSmart EV is compatible with all EVs and enables the EV driver to completely control and manage their charging point via their mobile phone, tablet or any other web enabled device.
With its smart charging app, you can capture off-peak rates by smart charging your car and automatically integrating any home energy tariff.
The app gives you full control over your EV charging, as well as allowing you to monitor / record all charging activity, data and history.
Units are available with a Type 2, Mode 3 charging socket offering either 3.6kW (16amp) or 7.2kW (32amp) charging speeds.
Types of Chargers
There are two types of chargers – (Socketed and Tethered, 16amp or 32amp)
This unit includes a built-in universal socket but you will need to provide a cable to ensure it is compatible with your vehicle.
A tethered unit is one that comes with the cable attached to the charger. The cable will be provided should you choose this option.
Tethered comes with 5m cable as standard, but that can be upgraded to 10m.
We always advise purchasing a compatible lead, unless your car is provided with one, to make use of public charging points.
Installation and Extras
The cable will be connected to a circuit breaker (RCBO) in your mains board and this will be run from your board to where your charger is positioned.
If no room is available in your mains board, a separate small consumer unit will need to be installed (with the RCBO component already included).
The standard colour for the WallPod:EV HomeSmart is black with green pods.
However, these can be upgraded to different colour options when you pre-order (a 2-3 week lead time from order date).
