I-Pace delivered on Monday. What a car!

Used Andersen A2 charger for the first time. Very good design and simple to use. Have not used timer feature yet but will advise when I do.

Hi AndersenEV, I've just ordered my I-Pace so the next thing to do is arrange fitment of a charger.

Are there any forum discounts yet please? I could also do with some advice on what to get.

I notice you do a 22kw version, though the I-Pace can only utilise a 7kw charger. However, I'm assuming other cars can utilise a 22kw charger, so I'm wondering if it's worth me future proofing and going for the 22kw, or whether the charger can be upgraded to 22kw in future if I wished to upgrade with a future car?

I'd be very interested in a forum discount if one can be arranged, as the charger was quite a bit more expensive than I was expecting. Looks a good bit of kit though. 😁

I think you will need a 3-Phase supply for 22kW.

Hi Grillpan,

Could you please update on your experience with Andersen Wall Box?
Aortega

Hi. I have used the A2 now for six weeks and my experience continues to be excellent. These are my observations:

- It’s a high grade, high quality unit. Top components used and finished to premium standards.
- Very discreet. No one notices it (which is what I wanted). I chose the wood finish as many units are made of white/grey plastics, which did not appeal to me or my wife from an aesthetics perspective.
- The 4m tethered cable resides inside the unit so all you have to do is lift the flap at the top, grab the connector and unwind the bespoke cable and connect it to the car. The cable is flexible and light and unique to Andersen.
- When you are finished you wind the cable back and as you do so, brushes automatically clean the cable which is a great design feature.
- At nighttime discreet LEDs make it easy to see what you are doing whilst un/connecting.
- The Andersen App is simple to use and makes it easy to monitor the kW's used and the cost per charge. It supports solar power, something I will look at soon.
- The pre/post sales support has been exceptional. You definitely get what you pay for. In fact, I received a call that an engineer would come and change a part, as the owner of Andersen was not happy with a specific component, and wanted existing customers to have the best. All replaced at my convenience re: date/time.
- Timed charging is not important for me as I pay the same per kW regardless of the time of day. Right now the Jag will draw power immediately (as discussed in detail on this forum) regardless of setting. However, I am yet to play with the Jag settings in the car to see if there’s a way to use the timed charging feature on the Andersen App.

Not sure if any of this helps but I would recommend Andersen to anyone.

N.B. 22kW is available but you have to have 3 phase at home to support this unit. I looked into this but the cost associated with upgrading from single phase was prohibitive.

Hello RJUK

Hope you are well and excited to get your I-Pace.

We aren't currently running any discounts at the moment. However, I have mentioned this to the management team to look into.

Do you have a 3-phase electrical supply? If you don't have 3-phase and don't plan to upgrade, getting a 22kW will not be of any use to you. But if you are planning on making the upgrade we would suggest getting a 22kW for future proofing.

Hi Andersen EV.

I guess 7KW will be what I need then. I'd be interested in the forum discount if you can get one sorted soon, as this may well be enough to sway me in the direction of the Andersen charger.

Also, out of interest, how long are the current lead times for an install and are you registered to help claim the government grant for charger installations? (I would presume so.)

PM me if preferred.

Thanks
Russell

Do you think you need faster than 7kW charging at home? I've seen it come up a few times in conversation on the forums and it seems rare that people actually need the ability to come home, charge, and go out again shortly thereafter (and for rare events using public rapid charger may be a better solution). Upgrading home supply to 3-Phase is at the mercy of Monopoly and often costs both arms and legs :(

7kW is 20+ MPH, so 10 hours overnight would be 200 miles.

When you, your spouse, and your two still-at-home kids, have EVs the overnight charging situation will be more interesting :) But even then if you arrived home empty today, and only gained 100 miles overnight, then you could gain the other 100 miles (plus commute top-up) tomorrow night - except on the (presumably rare?) occasions when you are doing 200 mile journeys on back-to-back days - then there would need to be some juggling of Spouse and 2-kids EVs to accommodate your need :)
