What We Like About These Chargers

Beyond the sleek appearance with 4 colours to choose from, it is great to see a leading EV charging solution that is manufactured locally in the Asia Pacific region.

The E2 Charger includes all the leading technologies like solar power integration and programmable charging.

Their standard flagship single-phase E2 charger comes with all the functionality built-in, so there is no need to buy additional hardware to make this charger work as is the case with some other products on the market.

All this comes at an attractive price of $1,395 for Australian customers.

Key Features

Smart Charging

The Evnex E2 Home Charger can be controlled remotely through the Evnex mobile app, allowing users to schedule charging sessions, utilise solar power only and monitor their charging history.

Ease of Use

With an intuitive interface and simple plug-and-play operation, the E2 charger is accessible for all users, regardless of their familiarity with EV technology.

Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) compatible

It is great to see that Evnex E2 chargers are compatible with OCPP. OCPP is a communication protocol that many 3rd party software systems can utilise to interact with the charging device. Over time, as the EV market grows, we expect there to be more software

Evnex Mobile App

The Evnex is very straightforward and contains all of the essential features with a sleek design. At the time of writing, there wasn’t enough reviews on either app store to give a rating.

Pros and Cons

See the below evaluation of the Evnex chargers compared to alternatives on the market.

Local company with products manufactured in New Zealand

Attractive price point compared to chargers with similar functionality

Solar compatible and dynamic load balancing
No option for an untethered single-phase charger, so limited to a 5m cable (which is shorter than some options)

At the time of writing, it appears Evnex do not have an Australian office to provide local support, but they do have an Australian number to call.


It is recommended that the Evnex E2 Home Charger be installed by a qualified electrician to ensure safety and compliance with local regulations. The installation process is generally straightforward.

Warranty & Service

Evnex offers a comprehensive 3-year warranty for the E2 EV Charger and the X22 EV Charger. Their warranty document is a simple one-pager that covers some of the logical areas where the warranty will not be valid including misused or incorrectly installed products. 

There is no Australian address to process local warranty claims, so it is unclear how a warranty claim would be processed and whether any costs would be incurred by customers. Customers can contact Evnex customer support on 1800 959 377 for assistance with any issues that may arise.

Should I Buy an Evnex E2 Charger?

In terms of features and value for money, Evnex’s E2 home charger looks to be one of the better options available on the market. The company has almost 10 years of experience manufacturing EV chargers which makes them one of the more experienced companies on the market. 

The one thing we would like to see in the future is a local Australian support office and a clearly outlined process for Australian customers to process a warranty claim should the need arise.
