To ensure a seamless customer experience, Humax actively partners with a service provider, currently undisclosed. This collaboration will streamline surveys, installations, and post-installation support services, catering to the diverse needs of customers across the UK. During online purchasing on the Humax ECORD website, users can conveniently select home installation services.

Beyond the marketing gloss, the Humax ECORD comes with a 4m or 7m Type 2 Cable. That offers adaptability to diverse installation scenarios. The charging sessions are controllable through the Humax ECORD Mobile App. This provides real-time insights via the front LED indicator and app interface, promising a user-centric experience.

Humax’s President, Jeff Kim, commented:

“Humax is recognised for its manufacturing heritage, its reliability and strong customer service across a wide range of sectors from TV devices to mobility solutions. The ECORD 7.4kW Home Charger is the first model in our EV charging series, confirming our commitment to sustainability and the smart home ecosystem. The EV charger range will be supported by a dedicated team of Humax customer service professionals, with a smooth installation process and outstanding post-purchase care assured by our trusted service partner.”

Delving into the technical aspects, the ECORD charger emphasizes its solar compatibility. This feature allows users to tap into excess energy from their home PV systems for EV charging. Operating in ‘Solar’ or ‘Solar and Grid’ modes, it acims to optimise the utilisation of solar energy, supplemented by grid power for a fully charged vehicle when needed.

Safety and durability are paramount considerations, with the ECORD boasting an IP65-rated water- and dust-proof housing, built-in PEN fault protection, RFID technology, and current detection mechanisms. These elements underscore the reliability of the charging infrastructure.

The home charger market is an ever competitive battlefield. However, Humax’s specialism in home tech will set it in good stead.
