Need a L2 charger recommendation

Sun Nov 26, 2017 5:44 pm

I’m looking to purchase a L2 charger for garage/home charging. I have an existing 240 service box in garage, with a spare unused 40A breaker. I’ll be installing the wiring from box to charger location.

Some items I’m looking for:

-L2 charging that maximizes my 6.6kw charge ability obviously
-WiFi control if possible. My car does not have Carwings or any that capability. Would like to schedule charging to happen in middle of night without having to set the timer on dash every day.


I’m looking at the JuiceBox on Amazon currently at $539~ and consider it to be the front runner.

Any help would be appreciated.

I see the Juicebox Pro 40 on eBay, somebody selling new for $470 shipped. That's a good deal, considering that the cheapest 6.6kw+ I know of is the GE Wattstation for $400 at HomeDepot.com (without WiFi). I'd prefer OpenEVSE, but at $560, you'd have to decide if the extra 19% cost is worth it.

Another vote for JuiceBox Pro. That's the way to go!!

Just noticed that JuiceBox apparently sells refurbished models on eBay...thinking this is the route I'm going...Thanks.
