How to balance the electrical load in your home with Connect
To charge at optimal power and harmoniously adjust the load, add Dynamic Power Management to your Connect. The Connect will continuously communicate with the DPM module, constantly measuring the energy used by your household appliances and dynamically adjusting the charge speed of your car. This means you can always charge at maximum speed, without the risk of overloading your connection. Our installers will configure the Connect in such a way that your maximum speed doesn't hamper your household. Handy if you simultaneously use devices in the house that use a lot of power.
DPM comes at an extra cost but in most cases, it spares you the expense of upgrading your grid connection. Upgrading your grid connection will cost you a one-off installation payment as well as additional monthly payments. The cost depends on your network operator and your home situation.
Upgrade Connect with Dynamic Power Management
Optimal charge speed without overloading your home. It harmoniously distributes power to your whole house so all your appliances can run with the power they need.

You will be able to charge with speeds up to 7.4 kW with a single-phase electrical supply. Some homes in the UK allow up to 22 kW on three-phase electrical supplies, but this is very uncommon. The Connect charge point comes with a Type 2 socket. You can have the standard, universal cable or select a tethered cable for which you can choose between a 5m or 7.5m length.
To get the best experience from your Connect, we recommend that you only pair it to one mobile device at a time. When you connect two devices, it can interfere with the Bluetooth connection.
Automatic reimbursement of home charging costs is only available with the Shell Recharge Advanced charge point, and only if your charge card is issued by your employer. Once you've activated your home charge point in the online user platform, you can set up automatic reimbursement. All you have to do is fill in your energy tariff and add the bank account you want to get reimbursed on - we'll take care of the rest.
