“Future-proof” chargers: [capacity for future/full EVs, yours or guests]

240v (Level 2), 40-amps circuit; 4 hrs from empty

  • ClipperCreek LCS-40/P
  • ChargePoint CPH25-L25/P
  • JuiceBox Pro-32
  • PowerCharge Connect

* If charging using a standard 120-volt outlet, for safety reasons we strongly recommend a dedicated (unshared) 20-amp circuit
** If you don’t have 12 hours available every day to recharge or want to be able to make multiple longer trips in a day, upgrading to a Level 2 home charger makes sense.
