What we Think
It can take the knocks. As the name suggests this is the most compact charging unit available but it is also one of the toughest, constructed from cast aluminium. It has the maximum IK10 rating for impact resistance. With a fixed cable and connector, the charging process is extremely user friendly, using the plug and charge principle. The Compact Mini also features three-colour LED's to indicate the charge status. The cable wraps conveniently around the unit. We would recommend buying the optional cable holder. ICU units are manufactured by Alfen BV, a very large engineering company that has been making electrical equipment since 1937. And since 2008 has been growing into a major electric vehicle charge point operator in Europe.
