Interesting, I didn't realize one was manual and the other automatic. I agree, forgetting to flip the switch back to EVSE would be a BIG deal in the morning if your car wasn't charged up to go to work
also since we tend to turn the dryer on before going to bed, who'd want to get up in the middle of the night and switch it to car.....so I take it when the dryer is ON it interrupts the power to the EVSE? I'd think thats what you'd want, I mean a dryer is rather short term use and the EVSE could just charge after the dryer was done.
If you have the Ober EVSE do you know it's max charge amps? Is it the full 27.5a a upgraded Leaf can charge at or is it indeed 24a?
Update: Looking at Brads description for his Dryer Buddy it says: "All the Dryer Buddy's are available in a Plus version. The Plus version is a 2-way switcher that adds a high current relay and power supply inside to power only one outlet at a time. Any Dryer Buddy can be upgraded to a Plus version."
So does that mean it's automated, IOW not requiring one to flip a manual switch?
Also in another area he talks about his Dryer Buddy being able to give power to a EVSE while the dryer is in "air mode" only, IOW the heat coil is not on. I wonder how that works, how does the EVSE know the dryer is in tumble mode only as apposed to the heat coil being kicked in......wish I knew more about the Dryer Buddy and how it worked, looking at his photos I don't see any with a manual switch though.......maybe I'm just missing it
