~$600 on ebay seems easier peasier than $1000 from AV direct.

Yes, last night I bought an AV unit for $611 plus $30 shipping on Ebay - new in the box.

If I could have bought a Schneider unit from Home Depot, I would have but they didn't have any.

I want to have this on hand so my electrician can install this at the same time he is upgrading my electrical supply and panel from 100 Amps to 200 Amps. ( I need another 40 amps for the solar system I'm getting plus 40 Amps for the AV unit).

Easy peasy.

OR, for people wanting a 'backup' to the Blink, you can wait on Jwallace's $20 or so Nissan EVSE upgrade.

Just saw this outrageously irresponsible post, EVDRIVER.

Please delete or edit with a link with a description of the true state of affairs for EV Charge America, which to me sounds like someone might be headed to jail for fraud.

Sure, everyone should do due diligence before buying an EVSE, but having made your sarcastic joke it would be so easy and helpful for you to point them in the right direction as well.

Yes, and it still seems the Schnieder that many of us bought for $729 pre HD raising the price to $799 is still one of the best deals they offer, the 2 other L2 EVSE's are only good for 16AMPs (3.3KW current generation Leaf), and cost almost as much (well, the Leviton is actually much more at $999, while the Legrand L2 unit @ $749 is ok, but for $50 more, you get the 6.6KW capable Schnieder..)

I guess if you ONLY have a 20A 240V circuit, then these 2 are attractive, way less than running a new service, so they do have a place. If you are running a new circuit anyway, and have the capability / can run a 40A 8AWG wiring, the Schnieder is the best deal to "future proof" you garage for the current and the next generation of EVs

It does seem that Home Depot is throwing a lot "against the wall" and seeing what sticks, I wouldn't be surprised to see these show up in the electrical department at HD stores soon :)

I still think 16a would be plenty fine at home for most people even after the 6.6kW is available in 2013.
If I ever install one for a tenant it will be 16a due to power expansion limitations.
Right now I would choose Legrand over Leviton as it has a holster and easier cable management. Lower price helps too.
