A complementary charger demonstrated by Renault on its Frankfurt Motor Show stand will make it possible to plug ZOE into a conventional domestic socket, thus gaining an extra charge when drivers are a long way from their main charging points.

The Wall Box nevertheless remains the main home charging solution since it is designed for faster, more ergonomic charging.: In the UK, for example, a free 7kW (32 amp) domestic Wall Box is supplied and installed at residential addresses for every new ZOE purchased, courtesy of a government charging grant covering 75% of the cost, to encourage the take-up of electric vehicles. The remainder is covered by Renault.

Scheduled for early 2014 (depending on the country) as an option or accessory, the complementary charger will be compatible with all ZOE vehicles currently on the road.

    It makes the one I built for £300 look quite cheap.

    I am disapointed that the zoe flexi-charger cable is not able to charge at 16A. There are many places where a 16A CEE is available. I am thinking about buying a cable from Ratio Electric (model 31320) which can charge at 6,10, and 16 amps. It says on there webpage that it can not charge renault Z.E. But i can confirm that it can!
