Here is how the EVSE arrived
Image
EVSE case is a casting. It has two mounting plates on the back that attaches to this wall plate
Image
The input cable is not attached and the case punch-outs on the back or on the top. a NEMA 5-30 and strain relief is included, pre stripped for attachment to the terminal strip inside the case. A close-up of the mounting plates on the back of the EVSE
Image
While not lightweight, it seems well made and sturdy

Great pics! Is that a recess I see on the front of the unit at the top? I like how they did the slide mount to the bracket. Any chance you will take pictures of the inside of the unit when you wire the input cable?

Unit is 32 amp capable. Here is how to set the pilot signal. You will need to provide the correct gauge input wiring.

Called the dip switch! Glad they cover pretty much every setting I would ever use.

That case seems to be an afterthought for portability.

Transportable, not portable. Case feels about the same heft as the EAA Avcon adapter. Not to be confused with the LEAF unit, that's for sure. But would easily mount on the garage wall, then take with you on the occasional long trip. Seems very useful for the price point.

Looking real good for a spot that I have a 6-15 outlet :)
Has anyone checked if the main cord is available in 25' ?

It looks like a 6-30 plug (240v), not 5-30 (120v).

Where is the rotary 12A, 16A, 24A, 32A switch located?
Oh, I see it conveniently located on the FRONT face of the unit.
Excellent!

Some other Questions, please:
1. Is there a "max current rating" on the side of the EVSE, as referred to in the notes on the above instruction page?

2. Where do you connect the pigtail?

3. How long is the supplied J1772 "hose"?

------
The mounting bracket is "needed" because the EVSE body needs to be "held in place" so that a sufficient "pull/tug" on the J1772 "hose" will pull the hose "OUT" of the EVSE body enough (not much) to "turn off" the power to the car. Usually the Control Pilot wire disconnects first, causing the EVSE to open its relays.

Please ...

Does it work at both 120v and 240v?

What does the label say for operating voltage range, frequency, and amps?
