Overview

This is a smart untethered charger with a modern design, that’s competitively priced. According to installers that we have spoken to it has robust internals and will be reliable. It’s 7kW only (pretty much the norm) and the functionality on the app is easy to use. It’s no fuss, affordable, and it’ll do a fairly standard job. Not the best by any stretch, but it’s a good unit that will serve you well.

It’s got a touch of the Stealth Bomber look about it, which may float your boat or not, but you can change the colour of the panels if you don’t like the look of what you have – you simply click off the cover and clip another back on. There’s black, white, anthracite, red and blue covers, which are sold separately. Installers say the internals are robust and few unnecessary parts to clutter the overall operating system. It appears what’s underneath, is important here, and the Easee One has been put together to last.

The Easee One’s app is pretty good. The smart-charging features allow to set the battery percentage limit and the time so you can charge when your electricity is at its cheapest. The screen that monitors your usage and how much you have paid per charge is excellent, however, the Easee One doesn’t have dynamic tariff integration so it’s not going to select the optimum tariff – you just get the option to schedule at off-peak hours. Although the design of the unit is modern and sleek, it’s not the right shape to wrap the cable around so you’ll need a hook or cable holder to tidy it away neatly: that’s said, it’s not a deal-breaker because you’ll probably store it in the boot of the car.

Mostly. The Easee One is in the mid-territory it represents decent value for money in this price range. The fact that you can secure the cable to the unit by clicking a button on the app may be attractive for those who want the best of both worlds. This is its USP… for the time being. Expect more on the market to be like this.

VERDICT

It’s affordable, no-nonsense, the app delivers an excellent user experience and the cable lock is useful. No dynamic tariff integration and the absence of neat solution to tidy the cable away when not in use lets it down a little.
