I'll say one thing, though. It is BIG! Look at the photo in the pdf on page 2 under "Media" and "Residential Charger" that shows the Blink on the brick wall next to the small car. That thing is huge! We'll need significant wall space for the EVSE and cord coiling dock.....

It's missing something.....hmmm...... Oh, yeah....numbers. Should be Blink 182. That makes sense! What? Taken? By whom?

The Leviton Evr-Green is way way smaller than this unit. They also have 32A 7.7kW capability and apparently it can "plug into the wall" assuming you have their kit installed.
