Mine is dead too

Had it for 14 months and went belly up. I called for service and they just wanted another 500 bucks. Time to cut my losses.

DO NOT BUY!

Search on gm-volt.com for info on this charger. MANY people complaining the unit only lasts for about a month after the 1 year warranty expires and SPX/Bosch will not do anything about it. Do yourself a favor and get a more reliable unit from the start.

Bad Charger

I bought one 15 months ago and it just died.

Is this charger still available?

Is this charger available anywhere? I can't get the link to work, and I can't get the SPX site to work. This crap is frustrating!

Can you buy this without

Can you buy this without having to pay SPX the ransom that they are charging to install the charging unit? It does not cost $1,500 to install a 30AMP breaker or run a wire! Plus the cost of this charging unit. I can't find anyone selling this particular unit online.
