These are the one's I know of or have found for the UK. Any I missed then please let me know and I'll add them.

These are the manufactures ... you can get some of these installed by your electrical supplier or a general EV Specialist.

I've been told the home chargers will work with any EV and not like the Super Charger network that only works on Tesla's.

Also worth looking at:

Pod Point
Wallbox (I think this is actually Polestar’s recommended supplier)

Its on the list... 2nd one 😉

Also I wouldn't worry about recommended suppliers... Probably just a paid for reference.

Pod point are one of the cheapest out there, so if on a budget it's definitely one to look into.

Watch out for home chargers that need an earthing rod driven into the ground which can be a problem if you have concrete where the rod should go. Zappi and Wallbox don't need one as the necessary protection is built in so earth rod not needed. (There may be others available)

The Ohme charger ? The Ohme cable is better known as it uses Octopus Agile to automatically schedule the cheapest charging, but they now have a standalone charger that appears to have this functionality
Debating between that or a Zappi

There are two major other factors you may need to consider before you make your choise.

As others have mentioned above some may require an Earth Pit to be installed, and this can be a major issue for some people.

The second thing is Wifi / Wired internet connection. Some have to be wired to your internet router while others can use wifi or have it's 4g card, etc.. Of course this might be a problem for other people, with wifi not reaching far enough so won't connect, or live remotely and have crap phone signal.

Either way, do your research, phone them up and talk to them, so you can make an informed choice.
