Tethered charge points have a fixed lead allowing a more convenient charge experience.

The cable usually wraps around the unit for storage.

The leads come as standard 4.8 metre in length, other lengths are available.

What’s included?

Our standard installation package for charge points covers the majority of homes in the UK and includes the following:

  • Fitting of a Charge Point on a brick or plaster wall, or to another suitable permanent structure.
  • Up to 10 metres of cable, neatly clipped to the wall between the electricity supply meter / distribution board and the Charge Point.
  • Routing of the cable through a drilled hole in a wall up to 500mm thick, if this is needed.
  • Up to 3 metres (10 feet) of plastic conduit to conceal interior wiring.
  • The fitting and testing of electrical connections and protections required for the Charge Point.

Some conditions and limitations that you need to know:

  • The Charge Point must be located in your designated off-street parking area and be fixed at a height between 0.75m – 1.2m high.
  • When you are using your charger the EV charging lead must remain on your property and must not create a trip hazard for you or anyone else.

Additional work that may be required – this would be highlighted in the survey and quoted for appropriately

  • The standard package does not include fixing of the cable above 2m high, trenching the cable underground or suspending it above ground.
  • Installation of a Type A RCD in an enclosure.
  • Some installations require an earth rod to be installed. Although we prefer to install charge points that do not require them.
