Limited to 240V 20A Level 2 (4.8 kW)
They say it charges all first generation EV's at full rate. Well, only if you exclude the upcoming Ford Focus EV which is 6.6 kW and exclude Tesla roadsters using a J1772 to Tesla adapter that can go up to 70A, 16.8 kW. And when the second generation LEAF comes out with 6.6 kW, your probably want to replace the LCS-25 with something that can do 6.6 kW. You'll definitely want 6.6 kw for Future EVs with longer range. The LCS-25 is not future proof unless you restrict yourself to Plug In Hybrids (sedans) with electric range of 40 miles or less.
I'll take Phil's EVSE upgrade for now, and later we may have better portable 240V Level 2 EVSE that let the user easily set the max current and support at least 6.6 kW with end user easy selection of the current limit at 12A (15A circuit), 16A (20A circuit) 24A (30A circuit) and 32A (40A circuit). Preferrably it would also work at 120V Level 1 and 240V Level 2. If it did 120V level 1, I'd add one more current setting - 5A (shared 15A circuit for bed and breakfast weekend).
I will applaud them for offering another EVSE option.
