Get the most out of your bp pulse home charger by using our app via your smartphone or web browser.
Easily confirm when your electric car is charging, the speed it is charging at, and how much electricity your home charger has delivered to your car's battery.
Set up smart schedules to automatically charge your car when you want to, and take advantage of dynamic energy tariffs to charge your car at the most affordable time.
Quickly access records of when and where you're charging, and how much you're paying for electricity - for as long as you've been a bp pulse customer.
We'll take payment for your home charger once you've completed your order, by redirecting you to our secure payment gateway. We won't take any payments from you unless you authorise them and we'll let you know if we need to take any further payments to complete your order.
We'll handle the grant application for you and collect the subsidy from the government on your behalf, once we've confirmed you're eligible to receive it. bp pulse is an approved supplier under the government’s EVHS (Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme) from the Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles (OZEV).
If you need any additional work completed before your home charger can be safely installed, we'll provide a quote for this once we've reviewed your site survey. You can then choose to proceed with the installation or request a full refund for the payments you've made for your home charger.
While the cost of electricity can vary with each energy provider, the average price across the industry is 10.3p per kWh (about £2 to £3 for a full charge on a car like a Nissan Leaf).
We'll work with you to ensure your home charger is installed as quickly as possible and at a convenient time. We can also install your charge point up to 4 months prior to your car being delivered.
Using a 13A socket is not recommended and is a very slow way to charge your vehicle. Drawing this amount of current on a continual basis can put too much strain on some wiring systems and can be dangerous. Our home chargers are wired directly into your consumer board (fuse box) and therefore do not overload your home’s ring main. This means they are completely safe to charge for long periods of time.
The only way to achieve the impressive MPG figures quoted by the car manufacturers is to keep your battery charged whenever and wherever possible. A bp pulse home charger is the fastest, safest and easiest way of doing this every time you park up at home in the same way you charge your mobile phone.
