Twenty-two pages of posts and only one mention of the Chargepoint EVSE, so I'm chiming in:
This EVSE is on the pricey side, but it does go on sale every now and then... I bought the plug-in with 25' cord for $636 delivered, during the retail bonanza between Thanksgiving and Xmas.
Federal tax credit 30% = $191, City of Austin rebate 50% = $318, for an out-of-pocket cost of $127
. <fist pump>
The connectivity is a nice-to-have, not a must, but I was happy to turn off my Leaf's charge scheduler and replace it with the unit's scheduling (configurable for weekend/weekday, with however a start and stop time, not an "end by" time). I do like the ease of overriding the scheduler--you can either do it with the hardware (plug in, unplug, replug) or with the app (tap "Start charging now").
The unit is very sleek-looking and comes with everything necessary to mount it, including long screws and a paper template. The cord wraps around the mounted box. The "holster" is a ball swivel, so if you mount the unit low to the ground, the "nozzle" can still be engaged and disengaged easily. The colored lights are, well, mainly for the ooh-ahh factor when I show it off to friends. Green for online, blue when plugged in to the car, flashing blue when actually charging. I guess it goes red or amber for faults--haven't seen it though.
I know a lot of members here are avid do-it-yourselfers, but I really liked the ease of opening the box, screwing the plate to the wall, snapping in the wires, and plugging it in. It's worth noting that this unit is UL-listed, as one of the requirements for the 50% rebate from the city was UL approval.
No dog in the hunt... Just a happy customer. (I guess it didn't hurt that about 97% of the public chargers in Austin are on the Chargepoint network, so I already had a Chargepoint account.)
