other charging station

I recently bought a charging station (ESVE) from SPX, after reading blog comments elsewhere. Ordered their standard one (model EL-50600), for about 950$ + tax. Works fine, with my even newer Focus EV. I like its small size, ability to set different charge rate (24 amp. default), and ease of removal in case I want to unplug from 240 V. and take it elsewhere. Installation directions bothered me, but a bit of improvisation got me through it. Avoid using a side "knock out" for power input, to make installation easier. Comes from Michigan.

Price & availabilty

Will these be sold at Best Buy or Leviton? How much cash & carry and when available? I'm assuming it has a J1772 connector. My Nissan Leaf should be here in about a month. Sincerely, Dave Salzman
