Vehicle Incompatibility

Bill from Buffalo, NY reported on the Home Depot site that this station will not work with a Tesla. According to Bill, "As stated in the specs, this unit will trip off at 5ma fault, however, Tesla Cars put more than a 5ma fault while charging and will trip this unit unless redesigned."

Works great with my 2013 Leaf

The EVlink is presently $699 on the Home Depot website. It was easy to install and I have had no problems with it. Before I installed it, I measured the standby power consumption and it was very low (< 2W). It has a separate cable holder which I found to be very convenient, since I put it on the wall very close to where my charge port is.

Charging station works fine on my 6k charger in a 1970 VW

Charging a 1970 VW with a 6k Elcon PFC 6000 charger takes very little time and works as intended.

Good Reviews at Homedepot.com

I just order this EVSE from homedepot.com. Easy. All but one of the 8 Home Depot reviewers gave it 5 stars. Also, I called Home Depot and she said it is made in USA.

Thanks for the correction, John. The link has been updated. By the way, we just got some new datasheets on Schneider's products. So we will be adding a lot of details to this page, and creating others, soon.

Doesn't always charge

JasonT, at the My Nissan LEAF forum is reporting he has to sometimes plug the connector in a second time to get it to start charging. http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=104208#p104208
