Which home charger?

    We are getting a Kia E Niro in January and I'm looking into home chargers. I originally thought there would be a limited choice in chargers, but after a bit of research I am overwhelmed with the amount to choose from, what ones have people here got, and are there any massive differences between the brands?

    So far, we have a preference for untethered. We don't have solar power (and not likely to have).
    We're getting a night saver electricity meter installed next week.

    Is that for aesthetic reasons?

    It’s handier/quicker/cleaner to have a tethered charge point.

    Even on the aestethic side of things you will have the cable draping to the car most days anyway so it’s not like it will always be neat. Convenience would trump aestethic for me in this case but each to their own.

    yeah we don't have a lot of space at the front or side of our house, and with bins and stuff there already i thought it would be neater
