Project EV Review

Project EV Review

This charger, which is produced in China and licensed to Project EV in the UK, is also known as the ATESS or Growatt, which can make things confusing.

But if you’re looking for a cut-price budget option, this is your charger.

You can use the app to start and stop it charging remotely, check how much it’s charged, and organise charging schedules to use the cheapest energy – the basics, to put it simply.

Are there drawbacks? Of course – but they may not bother you.

Firstly, it’s a little large at 353mm x 218mm x 129mmcm. This is less than half the size of the Andersen A2, but it’s still relatively hefty.

You’ll also need to get an earth rod installed, or else choose Project EV’s Pro Earth option to ground your charger. This costs, but will spare you from having a rod outside your home.

If you have a solar array and are willing to pay a bit more, this model can use surplus solar power to power your vehicle.

However, its solar abilities aren’t well-known.

If you’re after an inexpensive product and you have the space to house this, the EVA-07S could be the charger for you.
