Tethered or Universal?


Connects to all electric cars. No cable included.


Has a cable attached (Type 1 - 4.8m or Type 2 - 7.5m)

Both charger types have their benefits, but there are some key differences between them:

Tethered Solos have a charging cable permanently attached to them, which can be either Type 1 (4.8m) or Type 2 (7.5m) to match whichever connector your vehicle has. They’re the convenient option as you don’t have to supply a cable separately, but you can’t remove the cable and take it with you.

A universal Solo is more flexible, with you supplying the charging cable. They accept both Type 1 and Type 2 charging cables, so any vehicle can connect to them provided you have the right cable. You can also use this portable charging cable on compatible chargers on the Pod Point Network.

Top 5 FAQs

It is strongly advised not to install an EV charger yourself if you are not experienced or qualified in that department due to the rules and regulations that must be followed to ensure safe installation and compliance.

This depends on certain factors, as home chargers offer that convince that your car can be charged overnight in a safe location, and you can always charge your car. Public charging is an option. However, it would be worth looking to see how many are local too you, key reminder that they may be busy and not guaranteed to be free to charge which leads to you unable to charge your vehicle. It is definitely not a bad investment in EV charging not only easier but can increase property value too.

In the UK, most chargers are compatible. Some incidents you may have to use you own cable, but they tend to come with the vehicle. Most UK charging sockets will be Type 1 or Type 2.

The Type 1 charger has 5 pin design and has a latch that keeps the plug-in place to prevent it from being dislodged. A Type 2 charger has a 7-pin design and is the most common one you will come across in the UK. It doesn't have a latch, instead, it has a locking pin which keeps it secure and in place.

This depends on numerous factors, from the cost of electricity, the time you charge and your location. At home charges are cheaper than public charges especially rapid charging stations and at home chargers can charge at night when electricity rates are low. Overall, it is cheaper than petrol with an average cost of charging an electric car at around £17 for a full charge.
