What is smart charging?

You may have heard about smart charging before, but what exactly is it? Put simply, it refers to a system that optimises charging through data connections. Our chargers communicate with your car, our servers, and the National Grid. Ohme can stop and start to align with periods of low demand on the grid, when prices are generally cheaper.

Learn more about how you can benefit from smart charging here.


How do I charge my EV?

You can control your EV charging via the mobile app or the Home Pro’s LCD screen. Download the Ohme app to take full advantage of smart features like ‘favour greener energy’ and to add charging schedules and price caps.

How long does it take?

Ohme charges at 7.4kW, which is about 40km per hour. If you have a smart schedule set (e.g. 80% full by 7:30am), Ohme will stop and start charging throughout your session to charge as much as possible when prices are cheaper. Just add your electricity tariff and let Ohme do the hard work for you.


How do I get it installed?

Simply send us your details to get started. We’ll partner you with an Ohme approved installer who will ask you some questions about your home and arrange a date for installation. Installation is speedy and easy to have you up and running in no time at all.
