Cheap home charger in Kerry

    We travel to Kerry on a regular basis as my wife's mother is there. We'll have a Zappi charger at home but just need something basic in Kerry to get the charging time down from 20+ hours with the granny cable to something closer to 6-8 hours.

    Is there a cheap, basic home charger people could recommend that could be fitted there? I know a lot of the companies that do them operate in or near big cities, ideally it'd be something not much more than the grant itself, which I'm assuming my mother-in-law can also avail of on her own house.

    I believe your mother in law can only avail of the grant if she is acquiring an electric car. Or maybe things have changed?

    That has changed she can avail of the grant. You could also install a dumb charger without the grant

    Firstly apply for seai home charger grant on Kerry property. Take photos of fuseboard, charging location, esb meter outside in box, and photos if hot press to show if hot press tank is earthed. Use these photos to get a few quotes by email or WhatsApp. ND based in tramore cover nationwide but aren't the cheapest. Any charger should work and installers prefer a brand they know and support .

    Ship around as quotes vary a lot but you are probably looking at 1200 euro minus 600 grant. The grant is only available to "smart" chargers now which has driven prices up. Do you are looking at adding 600 to grant, not nothing.
