Features and benefits of the EV charging experience

The Ohme Home Pro charger is equipped with several innovative features aimed at enhancing the user experience.  Its interactive LCD screen displays real-time charging data and allows users to schedule charging sessions, set a target battery percentage, and even add a price cap per kWh directly on the charger or via the Ohme app.

The tethered cable ensures easy and secure connection to the vehicle, while over-the-air firmware updates keep the unit’s software current without manual intervention.

Perhaps most compelling is Ohme’s promise of significant savings.  UK drivers could save £275-£350 annually compared to standard smart chargers, with some customers even earning money back for charging during optimal times.

This is facilitated through energy tariff and vehicle integration, allowing for smart charging when electricity prices are lowest or even negative.
