Siemens VersiCharge - Costco Members - pay $360 while supplies last

Wed Dec 05, 2018 6:42 am

In case someone is looking for a Siemens Versi Charge (VC30GRYU)

Features:
30 Amp Indoor/Outdoor Electric Vehicle Charger
20 Foot Cord - SAE J1772 Plug
Integrated delay functionality
Requires NEMA 6-50 Receptacle and a 2-pole 40-amp circuit breaker

Costco Members pay $360 through 12/11/18 while supplies last

NOTE: I think this would charge a Leaf just fine. However, you would need to check this of course. I use a Clipper Creek but this seems like a really good price.

Don’t know about older Leaf’s but my 2108 owners manual calls for a 50 amp breaker and a 14-50 NEMA receptacle.
EDIT: I looked at the manual again, it does call for a 50 amp breaker, but did not see anything on the NEMA receptacle. I put in a 14-50 in my garage, works just fine with my 2018 Leaf.

Either is fine. I use a Clipper Creek plugged into a dryer outlet.

A 40a breaker is just fine with a EVSE that only puts out 30a(27.5a max with our Leafs). This seems like a real good deal, the cord while not short isn't as long as some but if 20' works, you should be good to go.

This is the charger I use and I love it. I had a "dryer plug" installed just below our garage breaker box and it works fine. Very easy install. Drop out of the bottom of the box to the plug, then install the charger next to the breaker box and plug it in. It took the electrician 18 minutes to install the plug and the charger. Cost me $125, the minimum visit charge. Used it with our 2015 Leaf and now our 2018. 40 Amp breaker.

Personally, I would go with a 50amp breaker, the Leaf may not be your last EV, so down the road you may need a larger breaker.
Also remember, the copper wire size is different with a 50 vs. 40 amp breaker.

My outlet is on a 40 Amp breaker, but has wire sized for a 50 Amp circuit.

I am no electrician but I read that you need #6 copper wire for the 50 amp breaker, so I hope you 40 amp breaker has #6, because you stated you have the wiring for 50 amp.
