Don't buy the Electric Vehicle charger from Schneider Electric. Buy from an American company.
Buy it from Eaton Corp, that's where I work. If you can afford an electric vehicle then you should be able to afford to buy one of these chargers made by an American company instead of one from Germany.
I'd rather take the $500 that I could save buying the German product (which provides jobs to Americans, when you think about how the product arrives at your house) and spend it on other things that give Americans jobs. You could take that $500 and go to a nice dinner. This supports a small business, server, busboy, and chef. With the rest of the $350, I could buy a used kayak, made in the US. That just provided more jobs in the factory and from the shipping company that shipped it to me.
For the record SE is a French company (not German).
Was wandering the same thing is there any brain inside the box or power filter conditioner.
I'm surprise that Monster Cable is not in this business.
It's not just a plug/cable, there is a computer involved, which communicates with the car in order to supply the right amount of electricity, while also making this a safe experience. Search for the SAE J1772 standard if you want to know more, or google 'OpenEVSE' to see what the open-source version looks like.
BTW, the charger is actually in the car, officially, this is called an 'EVSE' or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment'.
I stand almost correct over priced for 2 fuse a small circuit board and 1 plug.
almost sure this cost less than $ 100 to produce ( apple logo is missing).
They( electrician installer and charger vendor) base their pricing on the fact that if you can afford an EV car you car pay overpriced hardware and installation.
