Has anyone looked at this offer from octopus energy? Or seen anything similar? Thinking of getting this as it's 4 hours at 5p/kwh and we should only ever need to top the car up at night.

Here's the details they sent me in an email.

The Zappi has lots of smart features such as 24/7 monitoring of your total home electricity usage ensuring you never blow a fuse & optimising for solar if you're clever enough to have panels.

Our favourite clever feature is that it knows when your off-peak tariff kicks in. So if you are on one of our off-peak tariffs, such as the Octopus Energy Go tariff, we will pre-programme your Zappi to know that 00:30 - 04:30 means super cheap, 5p/kWh electricity.

To bring you the best possible prices, we've partnered with MyEnergi to offer a Zappi home charger for as little as £359.

I'm looking at tariffs and considering the Eon Secure Bill. It's a fixed price for 12 months regardless of how much energy you use, but it is calculated on your previous 12 months usage.
It might only be cost-effective on your 1st year of EV ownership because your previous 12 months usage will not include any charging, but the year 2 quote will take that into account.

may be worth checking the small print for "exclusions" or ask them directly (anonymously) if it's ok to charge an EV - be a shame if the monitored usage triggers a check and then you discover the exclusion.....

I like the sound of that. I have been looking around for a new energy supplier and also at the Zappi charger so that looks perfect. Is there a link for the offer?

Just got a quote from EON Secure Bill, and indeed it is about £130 more than my current tariff, without EV charging, but it is a fixed price for 12 months, regardless of how much you use. I specifically asked if this applies even if I start to use more energy during the contract by charging my car overnight. The guy said he didn't think it made any difference, but I have asked for a copy of the small print to check the clauses fully.
If it is as seems I may be able to charge my car for a full year for £130 all-in. Definitely would only work in the first year of ownership, but might be worth it.
