Amazon has what looks to be some spectacular deals on ChargePoint Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger. Regularly, this charger goes for upwards of $570, and deals are commonly around $520. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...a27f2&th=1

At this time they are offering at least 20% off of 4 different 240V, 32A charging station options:
Hardwired 18' cord for $389: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...a27f2&th=1
Hardwired 25' cord: for $419: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...a27f2&th=1
Plug-in 18' cord for $419: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...a27f2&th=1
Plug-in 25' cord for $449: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...a27f2&th=1
.

Home depot currently has this charger on sale for for $519 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Charg...AQodey4HKA
or with a 25 foot cord for $559 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Charg.../301739858

At $389, this brings this charger in below to the sale price point of the Siemens Versicharge Gen 2, which is a nice charger, but does not include Wifi connectivity. Home Depot currently has the Siemens charger on sale for $429, which might be a consideration if you have concerns regarding Data Privacy with Chargepoint's app. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Sieme.../205491633

Even a refurbished Siemens Versicharge is coming in at $399 (plugin with a 20' cord) or $419 (hardwired with a 14' cord), both at Home Depot, so I'd argue this is a great deal if you're looking for a nice Electric Car charger with some additional functionality.

Can't you just charge your car with an extension cord to an outlet outside your house? Most new plugin cars are compatible with a standard 110v outlet I thought, it just takes twice the time (8 hours) vs 4 with a 220v outlet.

Depending on your vehicle. Typically a 110v plug in will get you around 2-3 miles per hour. Whereas this charger will get you around 30 miles or so.

2018 Chevy Bolt came with a 110V charger. I get less than 4 miles per hour of charge from the 110V.

With the 220V, I recharge 240 miles in less than 8 hour.


I bought my 40A Juicebox charger refurbished from electricmotorwerks2014 on ebay. They're the manufacturer of the Juicebox chargers. I was able to use a 15% off coupon at that time to get the price down to less than $310 (no WiFi version with tax). Looks like there are only WiFi versions for sale now, and the price is $385 with free shipping.

Mine looked new when it arrived with all accessories included.

Thanks for the question, geo2209. With modern EVs, you cannot simply use an extension cord for charging. An external charging cord, based on one of several industry standards (yes, they're still getting to one), is required. Especially in the United States, the charger that comes with most EVs is particularly limited. This is largely a function of 120V electrical service being run to outlets throughout the house (even in there is 240V service at the electrical box). This is what is considered a 110/120V Level 1 charger, which I believe usually run at a maximum of 15A. This produces somewhere between 1.2kW-1.4kW of power to the vehicle charger, which as it was mentioned in another comment, only provides a few miles (2-4) per hour.

An EV charging station such as this, which in the United States requires the installation of a 240V outlet, like the ones used for an oven or clothes dryer, will make available somewhere around 6kW of power to the vehicle's onboard charger, allowing for significant improvements in charging times, taking it from 12+ hours for a full EV to achieve a full charge to under 8 hours, or 8-10 hours for a full charge on a Plug-in Hybrid to under 3..

As 220/240V service throughout a home is more common in countries outside of North America, I believe it is more common in other countries to see included charge cords that can achieve these higher levels of performance.

Not a bad price for a refurbished Juicebox; however, for the small difference in price, I would prefer the factory warranty on this new charging station.

When I posted the deal this morning, only the 18' plug-in option was showing. I'll update the deal to include several other good options.

For me, yes - it takes me about 12 hours to fully charge my 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid using the old-fashioned 110v way (routed via extension cord to basement outlet), and about 2-3 hours on 220v. Considering the equipment and labor costs, I figured I'd save a few bucks before I upgrade my charging method.

So, it really depends upon the particular needs of the EV owner.

The Siemens Versicharge is an excellent charging station; however, the particular model for which you have included the link here, and that I've addressed in my original post, doesn't include WiFi connectivity or some of the more advanced management features provided by these Chargepoint models.

The AxFAST portable charger provides the owner with an easy-to-carry, dual voltage charger that can be used on the home or on the road; however, it is limited to 16A of current, which would supply only around 3kW of power to the onboard charger. For many owners, this may be fine, but the higher 6kW power of the Chargepoint charger will provide a faster charge for many. Plus, this portable charger uses a plug adapter to allow it to plug into a 240V outlet, this may make it slightly less efficient than a charge station with a built-in plug or hardwired source.

Thapnks for the in depth explanation! It seems like some other people in this thread can charge using a regular extension cord. I'm looking to get a chevy volt plug in but was wondering if it had a cord I can plug to my exterior 110v outlets or if I need something like this.

You need to be VERY CAREFUL when using extension cords to charge your EV. You need the beefiest, thickest copper cable and even then some people don't feel its safe. I'd go at least 10 gauge, which would be at least $30 for 25 ft.

Thanks, I just ordered one. We swapped my wife's 2014 Nissan Leaf for a 2018 model recently. We used to charge her old car with a simple 110v wall outlet, but the new car has a significantly larger battery. Charging the new one would take 35ish hours from dead to full, but less than 8 with a good Level 2 charger like this (according to the specs).
