Ohme have announced the introduction to its range of the all-new Ohme ePod untethered electric vehicle (EV) charger. As an untethered charger, the neat-looking ePod will provide universal charging for all electric vehicles and help Ohme to expand its reach into new markets, particularly those in the new build environment.
Ohme has already made progress in these new markets becoming the official charger provider for many developers, including Harron Homes and Hollins Homes. Furthermore, Ohme is also part of the House of the Future project at the University of Salford alongside Saint-Gobain, Barratt and Bellway to provide the low carbon homes of the future.
David Watson, Ohme CEO, said: “We are very excited to be introducing the all-new Ohme ePod untethered charger to the market.
“The ePod will open up new markets for us and boasts all of the functionality of our award-winning Home Pro but in an untethered package giving customers greater choice than ever before.”
The new ePod joins Ohme’s highly successful Home Pro smart charger which helped Ohme to be one of the UK’s fastest-growing smart charging companies in 2022. The new Ohme ePod features the same technology as the Home Pro for those after an untethered charger without the charging cable attached. Using the class-leading Ohme app, the ePod gives Ohme customers the choice between tethered and untethered for the first time.
This means that ePod customers can also take advantage of Ohme’s ability with its smart charging technology to connect with the national grid in real-time and automatically adjust its charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with smart off-peak tariffs.
Charging a Volkswagen ID. Buzz from zero to 100 per cent with an Ohme ePod on a smart off-peak tariff, such as Octopus Intelligent (at 10p/kWh, SVT at 34p/kWh) 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. Ohme is the official charger provider for the Volkswagen Group in the UK as well as Motability Operations, the largest fleet operator in the UK.
