We love working with customers who are looking for ways to efficiently charge up their EVs at home.
It’s great hearing the whys, hows, whats and wherefores of their journey towards low-emission transport; from retirees wanting to downsize their car, fuel bill and life in general to the young guns who are starting to take advantage of lower-cost HEVs that are hitting the Aussie market, every story is different and interesting.
We always ask our customers for feedback (nicely and we actually take it onboard, not like when your bank demands you stay on the line ‘for training purposes’) and recently got this great email from Maureen from rural Medowie, in the beautiful Hunter region of NSW. Our team were pleased to recommend, supply and arrange installation of a Zappi 7kw unit and we must say that Maureen sure knows how to use game-show hands to great effect when taking photos!
Very happy with the Evolution Australia Zappi charger we purchased for our new Hybrid Electric Vehicle.
Being able to conveniently charge our vehicle at home in a relatively short time if required was an important consideration for us in order to transition to lower carbon emission daily travel. There are VERY few commercial Charge Points in our area.
Our vehicle does come with a Portable Charger which we can plug in at home but that only provides slow charging and is best used overnight, but does the job fine.
The Zappi has met and exceeded our expectations and requirements.
We do generally use the slow charge function overnight as it is super convenient to just plug it in with the car in the garage pretty much as we already charge our phones overnight. Easy. The Rapid Charge feature is very handy if we need to top up the battery after longer than usual local trips, and it takes around 2.5 to 3 hrs to fully charge from flat on this setting.
The purchase and installation process was totally straightforward…Alex was here the next day and had the Zappi installed tested and working within a couple of hours, I didn’t even break in to a sweat!!
We do not have Solar Power as yet, but are planning to go that way soon. The Zappi will allow us to do that, so that we can realistically look at charging our vehicle with 100% renewable energy harvested on our own property. It will accomodate Wind power generation too if we go down that track.
Having the Zappi has meant that with some minor planning adjustments and time management we have been able to use our new PHEV on battery power mostly and have averaged < 3.5Litres/100kms fuel over 3000kms.
The purchase and installation process was totally straightforward and used a local Electrician to do the work (thereby supporting local business, another of my pet loves). Alex (from AAJ Electrical) was here the next day and had the Zappi installed tested and working within a couple of hours, I didn’t even break in to a sweat!!
So, all in all, this is relatively new technology, and certainly new to us, but so far it has been a genuinely smooth and easy process. I am more than happy to recommend both the Zappi and Evolution Australia to anyone considering the change to EV driving.
Thanks for the great review Maureen, happy charging and driving!
