Charging Cable Cost for Wallbox Charger

10 posts in this topic

So it appears the ED comes with the domestic power socket that you cannot use elsewhere; what did you pay for the wallbox socket?  You would think they would add this as an accessories option when building your own :)

The ED comes with a charger which plugs into any 110V 15A socket. It can be

used from 4 Amps to 12 Amps. I personally have a commercial (hospital) grade

outlet with a home (straight) run unswitched to the electrical panel.

This meets our needs for the foreseeable future.

If you want faster charging, then you will require a 220v 30 Amp service installed

and an appropriate charger. It doesn't have to be smart specific...:rolleyes:

But can I use the charger that comes with the vehicle at charging hubs?

Thank you I was just there :)  For some reason I got it in my head that I needed to bring my own cord to a charging station…then I found a clue 😂😂

I think most people (we do), pack a heavy duty grounded extension cord for use away from home.   it will come in handy if you need to extend the included charging cable reach an outlet that's just a bit too far...

I keep the 120V charging cord that came with the Smart ED in my garage to charge the car nightly, I never bring it with me.   It's an all night charge, so not something I'd bring an extension cable to use... my 2c.

We have a wall mounted L2 EVSE in the garage so we always pack the ED's L1 charger.   Plus my wife charges at work to get a little bit of free power.

Mine is outside.  Before installing this, I used the ED's L1 charger.  Had to change the socket on the house and the breaker in the house because, as posted elsewhere in this forum, normal cheap household plugs and circuits are not really meant to draw 12 amps for 15 hours to get a full charge.
