Frequently asked questions

If your question isn't answered here, check out our full FAQ page for more.

What do you mean by 'tethered' and 'untethered' cables?

×

'Tethered' means there is a cable permanently attached to the charging box at one end.

'Untethered' means that a cable plugs into your car at one end and the box at the other. So you’ll be able to source your own cable to charge your EV. For example, the one that was delivered with your EV.

What size cable do I need for an EV charger?

×

Your cable will need to be long enough to comfortably reach your EV from your chargepoint. Depending on the brand you chose, the cables of our tethered EV chargers are between 5 and 8 metres long. Generally, this is enough for most houses where the box is on the outside of the house and the car is parked on a driveway.

What does a 'standard installation' involve?

×

Our EV chargepoint installations are grouped into three categories.

They consider different factors that help us estimate how complex the installation is going to be:

  • Where do you want your charger to be fitted?
  • How long will it take to run a cable from your main fuse box to your charger?
  • Will we need to drill through any walls?

A standard installation is included in the price of your charger. But if the installation is more complex and our engineers will need to spend more time at your home, it’ll cost a bit more.

ev-charger-install-summary

Every home is different and you might want something more complex. For example, fixing your chargepoint to a pole or hiding cables under floorboards. In these cases, we’ll prepare a custom quote for you.

Save 88% vs public charging when you power up at home

We obtained this figure by comparing the cost to charge an EV on the public charging network vs charging on our IO GO tariff. To calculate the rate for charging on the public charging network, we used data from zapmap, who calculated the weighted average price** to charge an electric car on the public charging network, in May 2024, to be 57p/kWh on slow/fast chargers and 80p/kWh for rapid/ultra-rapid chargers.

To calculate the the savings, we compared the cost to charge an EV on IO GO against the cost to charge on the slow/fast chargers at 57p/kWh. Assuming you charge your car on our IO GO tariff, and only at the off peak hours, you are charged a rate of 7p/kWh. This is 50p (or 88%) cheaper than the average rate to charge on a slow/fast charger on the public charging network.

** Using an average efficiency EV* this equates to 17 pence per mile and 24 pence per mile respectively.
