    Tonik 15th Nov 16 at 1:45 AM
    A new name showed up when I was investigating whether a change of electricity supplier would be worthwhile: Tonik. Looked quite competitive for me, with the snag being that I've never heard of them and know nothing about them.

    The inevitable question is, do you know anything? I was looking for an independent review, but all I can find is the company's own website.

    Are they worth going with? Anyone with any information/opinions, I'd be grateful if you could respond. I can't see this question as having been asked before, but if it has, please can someone direct me to the appropriate thread.

    Thank you!

    OK, so it's Tonik Time!

    While I've held off so far, Tonik are still a little cheaper than my current fix from Robin Hood. As there's no cost for an early exit with Robin Hood, I'm now on my way over to Tonik.

    It's purely on cost. Robin Hood might have been a little slow to answer the phone at times, but dealing with them didn't leave me feeling like I was dealing with an adversary. I'd happily use them again if the price was right.
    Signature on hold as I've seen no unused witty comments to plaigarise.

    I started my switch with Tonik a few days ago, 3rd in the overall list but the previous 2 had exit fees so i don't mind not getting the best saving.

    Though i got an email the other day saying there's a collective energy switch event coming next week? supposedly they almost always find cheaper deals for anyone who is signed up to the cheap energy club before a certain date, the date this time is the 24th of April.

    Might pay to compare prices again in a week or so!

    I am too considering switching to Tonik. In the comparison it came up that Tonik was attractive and I'm interested in going 100% renewables. I'm not living in the property yet, I will be moving in a couple of weeks to Hitchin area. Up till now I've always lived in share flats/house with all the bills included so I'm new to all the bills charges and slang. I'm interested in moving away from the big energy providers too, I think smaller companies might be more competitive.

    Happy to refer more people, just drop me a PM

    £20 can be yours and mine! (Although we should probably figure out a way of sharing it out)
