Re: Can anyone recommend a level 2 Home Charging Staton?

I just bought a AeroVironment level two charger off of eBay, supposedly new in box for $640, if this works out it will be a pretty good deal.

Re: Can anyone recommend a level 2 Home Charging Staton?

1. The "original" SPX Level 2 EVSE
http://www.servicesolutions.spx.com/Ful ... ?id=26&l=1

spec sheet (same info as the one for Power Xpress below):
http://www.servicesolutions.spx.com/pdf ... pcsht4.pdf

Apparently this is an old web page/site, perhaps showing what
was intended, or a prototype of the eventual product.

I was confused by the different appearance, and "controls".

2. The SPX Power Xpress that is apparently what emerged:

I just had a Schneider Electric EV2430WS installed. I have only used it once. It's quite simple and well finished. My electrical contractor bought it from a local electrical supply house (Austin, TX), $850. (Installation costs $850.)

Re: Can anyone recommend a level 2 Home Charging Staton?

Here is the total costs that I paid:

$640 for the AeroVironment charging station off of eBay, exactly like the Nissan dealers have

$126 for wire and 40a circuit breaker.

$225 labor for the electrician, $45 an hour for 5 hours.

The charger works great, had it installed today. Also, I don't have 200a service like the manual says I need, i just have 100a, but it still works great.

Didn't have an inspector here either, probably a state to state thing.

More likely an "Oops! I forgot to get a building permit" thing.

Re: Can anyone recommend a level 2 Home Charging Staton?

nice to see these on ebay now

$640 is a good deal for an all weather unit, and being white it blends in to the outside decor of a home better than other units.

Re: Can anyone recommend a level 2 Home Charging Staton?

We got the AeroVironment unit and have been happy with it. It is pretty simple, but has withstood electrical storm intermittent power outages.

Re: Can anyone recommend a level 2 Home Charging Staton?

When considering the cost of the EVSE installation, remember to include the 30% federal tax credit; however, it can only be claimed if you buy the EVSE from the manufacturer or official distributors, not individuals.

It is likely that the IRS will not audit you in regards to an EVSE credit, but in case they do, you will have to produce the original purchase receipt with your name as the original buyer.

Just something to keep in mind :)
