I charge my Tesla based Mercedes B at 40A using A Quick Charge Power cable and an OpenEVSE using J1772. I think you can also purchase a high power JuiceBox but I have no experience with it.
All three fully comply with the J1772 specification including the GFCI test unlike many Chinese units.
And if price is the reason some are putting off buying a quality EVSE, Clipper Creek is now offering factory refurbished units, with a one-year warranty. Cost is $300 for the LCS series and $400 for the HCS series, regardless of power output.https://store.clippercreek.com/used
So if you're lucky and can score a factory-refurbished HCS-60 (assuming you have the necessary 60 amp circuit as well), at $400 that's less than half the price of a brand new one. (For those not familiar with how Clipper Creek's nomenclature, the number refers to the required circuit capacity
, and not the output. Actual maximum output is 80% of that, so an HCS-60 outputs 48 amps max, an LCS-25 20 amps max, etc.)
As availability varies, you have to call or email them, no web sales.
