Re: FS: Launching my new Level 2 Chargers. Two versions. 40 amp - $429.99 --16 amp - $259

A 40 amp charger cannot go on a 40 amp breaker... A constant 40 amp draw would blow the breaker.. ANyway, With the Leaf, you cannot charge more than 30 amps anyway... If you ever had a EV that could charge at 40A, then you would need a 50 amp breaker and correct gauge of wire....

No offense, but why would I buy this unproven unit when I can buy a proven JuiceBox with a three year warranty for 15% more or so? Or a Siemens unit?

This is really a commercial ad and as such it should not be in the private ads. All of my EVSE ads were removed by the forum owner Mike.

These are rebranded Chinese units from the many makers that sell them under various names. Few make them but they all "make them".

Chris Howell has tested many Chinese EVSE's and they have all lacked the GFCI coil and test. It is hard to make a glitch free circuit since the levels are so low so they just leave it out.

As I understand it the J1772 specs are optional and leaving out the GFCI test makes a cheaper working unit. OpenEVSE initially did not have the test but for the last few years it has been present and Nick Sayer figured out how to test the circuit so you are confident it is working. The nice thing about the OpenEVSE code is that it is public domain and many have added their tweeks to it. Lincomatic wrote the body, Goldserve added the timer, Killpatrick added temperature shutdown and Nick Sayer added the GFCI test. If you have a good idea Sam (Lincomatic) will add it if there is room (the code space is very full).

I looked the item up on Amazon and cannot see specifics on warranty. Please outline your warranty. Are you making these or importing a finished product?
