Charger Purchase for Self Install

I'm in processing of leasing an I-Pace as a company car (own business). I want to install a home charger, however I would prefer to do a self install, i.e. purchase a charger then get my own electrician to install. Mainly because my house wouldn't be a straightforward install, and because I am currently getting an extension added along with other refurb work, meaning it is a fluid situation.

So looking for advice on not only a possible type of charger, but also where to buy. Have been looking online and only one I can find that fits the bill is a Rolec Homesmart EV. However can't find a supplier with a quick delivery.

Thanks in advance.

I use this :

https://www.evchargeking.com/en/chargeu ... type-2-32a

It's cheap, I don't have to bother to install a box near the car, very easy to install, I can choose the charging speed and I can bring it with me if needed

It connects to a blue CEE 32A socket that u have to install.
I did it myself near my main electric board. Easy and works fine since 10 months now.
