The L2 residential unit is supposed to go on sale February 16. I don't know the pricing but I know this info is accurate.

I like seeing all these L2 and L3 products, but what will get me really excited is seeing them in the wild.

But if the price is right.....

UL just listed the Schneider Square D charging station (model EV2430WS).

More info here:
http://www.pluginamerica.org/accessorie ... c-square-d

Schneider has also posted new documents, like an installation guide, a user's guide, and a product catalog which contains all the specs for the new models. Links for all those are on the page above.

Wish we knew the price.

Only 18' e-hose.
Only current setting apparently 30 amps.
Apparently Indoor only
Apparently Hardwired only
Also, their stated "5 ma" GFI current detection level seems too low.

It's a pet peeve of mine, but this device already has a name, and it is called a "cable".

"Cable" is a very general term.

By "e-hose" (like a gas hose and nozzle at a gas station), I was referring to a particular type of drive-over tested, 4-conductor cable, connected to an EVSE at one end and with a J1772 plug at the other end, used for providing "e-fuel" to (charging) an EV, not just any wires, sometimes enclosed-in-insulation (telephone cable, under-sea cable, RF cable, message sent by wire, etc).

Perhaps a better term will emerge.

Some might like using the more general terms "charger", "cable", and "plug" or "connector".

ok, then EVSE cable, it is a cable and it is NOT a hose. "e-fuel" is another term you made up, but it bothers me less because electricity could be argued to be a fuel, but it again just seems easier to use the existing term of fuel or electricity rather than e-fuel. Why this need to create new names?
