Re: Ohme Home Pro v Wallbox Pulsar Plus

Has anyone experience of both Ohme Home Pro and Wallbox Pulsar Plus chargers and know the real life pros and cons of these (apart from Ohme is simcard based and Wallbox is wifi based). Can you control multiple Ohme or Wallbox chargers with one app (what happens if you have 2 chargers at different l...

Re: How to get a deal for an EV Home Charger. My method!

This bit right here "I received a quote for £900 for 2 Wallbox chargers installed at 2 houses, a few doors away. Both need a mini consumer unit and RDCO." It reads like this is additional to your £450 each, and most of the post reads as if it's hypothetical. Let's also be Frank that your ...

Re: How to get a deal for an EV Home Charger. My method!

I have clarified that this is for the Wallbox. Since my labour cost is lower than the grant, if the installer did not buy the charger they would have to provide me with a refund. The did not think this would work under the scheme. I am am not sure. The installers also mentioned they had to provide 3...

How to get a deal for an EV Home Charger. My method!

I have 3 years on-site warranty from date of installation and I purchased my own charger which my installer then installed. The charger was sat in its box for about 3 weeks. I’m not terribly interested in justifying it to you, if I’m honest. These are just facts which really aren’t in any question....

How to get a deal for an EV Home Charger. My method!

Note, for the £350 grant the installer has to supply and install the charger, you cannot buy it yourself and ask him to install it. This is incorrect. Any charger eligible for the grant can be adopted by any approved installer and remain grant eligible. In fact this is precisely what my own install...

Re: How to get a deal for an EV Home Charger. My method!

Doesn't sound like you have a deal at all - you either pay £900-950 inclusive of grant (£550-600 net), or you pay £450 plus a sparky's install costs, but not many sparkys are registered for the grant. I'd go with the grant option rather than forego my 3 year warranty with an independent sparky not ...

How to get a deal for an EV Home Charger. My method!

If you want to beat the high prices of EV chargers from the "big boys", this is the method you can try. Note, for the £350 grant the installer has to supply and install the Wallbox charger, you cannot buy it yourself and ask him to install it. Thus, most installers will be VAT registered. ...

Delivery time

If they do that will seal it for me buying a VW, the experience has not been pleasant with rude sales people and no information for months. Before ordering the id3 I was looking at the Mokka E and Kona and both those cars I would of had by Christmas. The VW dealer knows that and I would hope for a ...

Re: Delivery time

I am going to be cheeky and ask my dealer for additional discount if it does not arrive in March/April. They know I placed with in the end based on that target date as the vehicle I am trading in is due a major service end April/early May. I will be rather miffed if I spend £200 - £300 on a serivce...

Ohme Home Pro v Wallbox Pulsar Plus

Ohme's follow up to my questions (at least they answer - a so called Troll likes this!): Does this mean 2 accounts have to be set up, one for each charger (A & B) and shared for 3 people - each person shares the same login for charger A & B and all passwords are shared? Yes, you need an acco...

Ah it's just a delivery tracker, not a potential profit tracker. By all means be my guest to start your own up though.
It was tongue in cheek.
But, buy price is not profit for the car or charger and would help people get good deals!

Re: Selling ID.3 on day of delivery.

I've considered selling up, being offered more than you buy a car for is tempting to take however when looking into placing a order for a new ID3 the incentives are no longer there and the cost per month is a hell of a lot more than my current deal so I'll stick with it. I agree. This is why I look...

Selling ID.3 on day of delivery.

I can see your points and most posts have replied to your questions. I was just wondering if you have to declare the capital gain on your tax return? And if you did with the other sales on your imported cars? £5-£7k is below the capital gains tax limit. So no tax to pay, But is it capital gains or ...

Ohme Home Pro v Wallbox Pulsar Plus

Can both be set to prevent charging at peak times from an app or the hardware itself which cannot be overridden by anyone except those with access to a password protected app? Can the app be installed on multiple devices with different account logins or does it have to be the same account login?

If not trolling, then lacking in social skills.
Or standing up to bullies and those who hurl insults. Go through the thread and see who started the insults. My posts did not start them. Mr Parker began this approach.

Re: Selling ID.3 on day of delivery.

Many people at the back of the queue would buy from them and stop moaning like babies. Have you heard of market forces? Soon there may be no profit on it.

Hmm, everyone apart from the people sat in the queue behind. Remember this every time you complain about lead times. How does it affect them? If the original buyer keeps the car or sells it immediately or after a few months, it makes no difference to people in the queue. You argument is that if he ...

I'm not sure whether this is directed at me or not, but my reaction is exactly how I feel. I buy cars on emotion, rightly or wrongly.

Re: Selling ID.3 on day of delivery.

When you insure your ID.3 and if (only some ask) you have to state the value of the car what do you enter if you do not know the value?
The buy price is not the market price is it? Do you enter the new RRP?
