About OEM Audio Your Car Audio / EV Charging Specialists NZ


Founding Director, Paul O’Connor started OEM Audio Ltd after trying to buy a reasonably-priced reversing camera for his own car. The products available were disappointing. So, after 10 prototypes, hundreds of emails, five manufacturers, and many late nights spent on research and development Paul can offer OEM customers reliable reversing cameras as well as a huge range of Lumina Audio multimedia units and EV Power Electric Vehicle charging products.


Our aim is to provide a great-looking media unit that has all your current needs in one convenient well-built, well-designed unit. We offer different Lumina Audio stereo units for many different car brands but all have great sound, the same must-have entertainment, and safety features.

Our director Paul travels extensively to check on our suppliers and factories, which are also inspected to ensure no child labour. Our manufacturing partners are regularly audited by one of the world’s leading Quality Inspections services, QIMA. We also regularly visit the latest trade shows for new ideas and developments.

We have extensive quality control checks in place at the factory, and we give each head unit a bench test’ here in our Christchurch workshop before it goes to the end-user.


From our early days of involvement in importing the very first used Toyota Prius into New Zealand, OEM Audio has followed and supported the EV industry. With positive environmental, financial, and convenience reasons it’s the obvious way forward.

Since 2016 we have been supplying EVSE cables for Electric Vehicles in the South Pacific through an exclusive partnership with our overseas manufacturer. Our partner produces over 2500 EV-related items daily with their main export market being Western Europe. Several new car distributors and over 50 used dealerships regularly purchase our EV Power equipment.

All our EV Power products are tested by TUV to full New Zealand compliance standards and tested again here in NZ. OEM Audio has also invested in a unique custom-built EVSE test facility, which is built to IEC standard. We are unique in this test equipment and it further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the EV industry. 

We have made a long-term commitment to producing up-to-date EVSE products with features the EV community needs. We take customer feedback and listen to EV community discussions in order to offer a desirable range of wall chargers and cables. In 2018 at E World we were award winners - proud to achieve Runner Up in the Small Medium Business Category for Businesses in the New Zealand EV industry. This reflects the efforts made to produce quality products for the EV industry in New Zealand. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements.
