CC LCS-25

I just purchased a LCS-25 from MetroPlugIn for $595 shipped. It arrived in two days, I have an electrician scheduled to install my 240V 25 amp line to our garage next week. While I've been able to operate my Volt for 13 months at over 90% all battery off the 120V OEM charger, I'm looking forward to the faster charging times a dedicated 240V line will provide. Additionally we may be buying a second Volt or ELR when our second car, a 556HP CTS-V coupe becomes too expensive to operate.

It would be great if there

It would be great if there was a dial on the back (like on the SPX) so the user could adjust the control pilot signal. This would make an awesome portable EVSE. A higher current capacity would help too, but I'm sure it's hard to fit higher rated parts in such a small box! ;)

Still too expensive

Still too expensive, these still need to be cheaper, let me know when I can buy a portable 240v level 2 for under $500. They sell the equivalent to this n Canada as a SunHighway for $659

LCS-20 is still available via special order

I have an existing 240 Volt 20 Amp circuit in my house, with some very difficult wire routing, so I wanted to use that existing 20A wiring. Therefore I needed an LCS-20, built for 20 Amp circuits (including sending the 16A signal on the J1772 interface). CC confirmed that the LCS-20 is still available -- it's the same as an LCS-25, they just need to configure it for 20 Amp service. So I placed my order and got mine tonight. Just an FYI for anyone who might need an LCS-20 or even an LCS-15 for whatever reason. Price was $995.
