Top customer reviews
It charges fine at 240-volts and 3.3 kW. I put the pigtail I have for running at 120-volts and 1 kW and it charged fine.
It does not charge the Nissan LEAF if the LEAF timer is on.
It should work with any plug-in that has a J1772 receptacle.
For those who use the portable EVSE that comes with a plug-in vehicle to charge at home in a garage and want to leave the EVSE there, this inexpensive EVSE is a good one to take in the car to charge at other places. A 240-plug to 120-plug needs to be made to take with it for charging at 120-volts.
The control box has an OFF switch. It get quite hot during 120-volts charging, so probably hotter during 240-volts charging
First, it is very compact and light. Compared to the large and heavy Level 1 EVSE that came with the vehicle, this this is about 1/8 the size, and comes with a good cord length.
The unit itself consists of:
1) housing that contains the charging contact controller, status lights, and power button
2) short pigtail end with standard 120VAC NEMA 5-15 plug
3) approx. 17 foot cable to J1772 plug that also has a leashed dust cap
In the box was also a very brief instruction and drawing set.
The EVSE was easy to operate as a Level 1 charger. Plug it in to a 120V outlet, connect to the vehicle, and press the power button. When you initially plug the unit in, the Power LED turns on, showing power to the box. When you plug in the vehicle and when the vehicle is charging the LEDs turn on accordingly. When the vehicle is completed charging, the charging LED goes out. With this EVSE my Volt charges at the higher 12 amp setting without a problem.
According to the documentation this EVSE can be connected up to 250VAC, and therefore yield a Level 2 charger at 16 amps. You would need an adapter to take it from the NEMA 5-15 plug to whatever your need is. With the right adapter you could plug this into a dryer or welder outlet and have Level 2 charging, although not something that I intend to do.
Couple of other notes:
-Unit has Chinese (?) characters as well as English on the status lights legend as well as on the warning sticker in the label
-The controls housing has a good loop at the top where you can hang on a wall or you can put a small caribiner there to hang it from so you don't strain the cable when plugged in
-The leashed dust cap hangs against the vehicle when plugged in, so may scratch the side of the car over time
-The controls housing gets warm
-The documentation claims the unit is IP55 rated for water resistance.
Just got it recently so we'll see how durable it is. This would be a great replacement (or addition) for the EVSE that comes with the car. Keep one at home, and use the other for the road. It is cheaper, lighter, smaller, and capable of plugging into 240V of you carry an adapter.
