I also like how the charging port is recessed into the body. Sometimes, function beats form and the Zappi demonstrates this with aplomb. It is competent in most areas and exceeds expectations. I’ve charged at Tesla Superchargers 3-4 times over last couple of months and no issues (apart from not being charged for one session 😀).
Our review will look at the zappi v3 charger objectively, to help you decide whether it’s the right EV charger for you. Basically, ECO mode uses green power when you have it, and pulls power from the grid when you don’t. This supplies a steady charge that still prioritises energy efficiency. Our friendly team of EV charging experts can organise the delivery and installation of your zappi, hub and harvi, anywhere in Australia.
It just uses the surplus PV power to charge my car when I want, or on a schedule, or as fast as possible. Love the control and the ability to charge only from soalr. The ECO+ function is set and forget which I love but at the same time if I want to charge as fast as possible then it’s a simple button press.
The display is easy to read in direct sunlight and dims itself when not in use. The only sign the charger is on, ready to charge, or charging is an RGB LED indicator on the front of the charger. Designed and made by myenergi in Great Britain, the Zappi is something of a national treasure in the electric world. The functional design is rugged and robust, clearly built to last rather than excite or turn heads. The Zappi doesn’t require an earth rod or earthing device like a Garo because it has in-built protection against the loss of the protective neutral and earth conductor.
Stay away from Zappi and purchase an OCPP compliant charger. Reached out to myEnergi UK via website, no response for a week then I get an email that says the distributor in Australia will contact me. Manufacturer wants nothing to do with supporting there product.
However, the snap-on cover, plastic housing and retro-looking DLB (Dynamic Load-Balancing) module look a little cheap, but for most users, the aesthetics will not be a big issue. Zappi is a smart EV charger with a difference and will charge any electic vehicle or hybrid. Not only does it operate as a traditional EV charger, it can also charge your EV using 100% free energy generated from your solar PV or wind generation. If you don’t have a PV system, zappi can still operate like an ordinary electric car charging point, importing from the grid. Purchased the Zappi online and was a little sceptical about how it could use “”solar”” energy to charge the car.
