What is a Zappi?
Zappi is a smart EV charger with a difference. Not only does it operate as a standard EV charger, but it also has optional charging modes to utilise 100% green energy generated from your Solar PV or wind generation. Increasing the Return On Investment (ROI) for your panels and electric car, the zappi is easy to install and user friendly. But don’t worry, if you don’t have solar panels installed, the zappi will still operate as a standard home EV charger harnessing power from the grid.
Being the first-ever solar EV charger of its kind, our innovative team has carefully designed features and functions to give you complete control of your electric car charging experience. Paired with the myenergi app, you can set timers to utilise economy tariffs, use the boost function, monitor your devices, and so much more!
This future proof, intelligent electric car charging is conceived, evolved, and manufactured in-house right here in the UK.
How does it work?
A solar EV charger works by allowing you to use excess solar to power up your car. Generating solar energy requires solar panels (PV) to be fitted to your home or place of work, but the energy generated through the solar panels is totally free, essentially giving you free miles!
Light energy produced by the sun is called a photon. It is the most basic, fundamental particle of all light. It is these photons in natural daylight that are converted by solar panel cells to produce electricity. This small bundle of electromagnetic energy is constantly in motion. Simply put, a solar panel works by allowing photons, or particles of light, to bounce into electrons setting them free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity.
Want it put simply?
Zappi will charge any electric vehicle (EV) or hybrid. It comes with a charging cable attached or not, this option is called tethered or untethered. It has 3 charge modes – ECO, ECO+ & FAST, the eco options are using solar or wind generated energy, you are in control of how you are charging!
Zappi has advanced integral safety features, this saves time and money on the installation process.
