Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RogerD So far - so good - though this is a replacement for a previous unit
Had purchased one of these (in-store) on my way home from picking up my EV (Kia SOUL EV). Had the unit installed - everything fine for about two weeks -- then it stopped working. Popped the cover (after making SURE that the 240v was turned off -- had a disconnect installed right next to it) and discovered there was a burning smell and a melted area of the circuit card -- oddly enough AFTER the fuses, right where the white conductor from the J-plug attached to the card.
took it back to Home Depot, ordered another unit (this one) and so far, so good. Will update if necessary (hopefully not!)
great price - since most vehicles already have timers didn't see the need for a second one! Instructions are definitely ehh. Looks fine in my garage. Did pick up a bracket to hold the cable and J-plug.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYPro916 Works like a champ
This charging station was well-packaged and the instructions were very clear. Using the product daily without any problems at all. Simple clear bright green light illuminates to tell you when unit has power and ready for charging. Whisper quiet operation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fogger AWESOME PRODUCT!!
Product installation was a piece of cake after an electrician installed a sub panel in my garage. I was able to learn the how the product was factory assembled, took notes as to placement of appropriate wires then slowly took each one apart noting their exact locations. Then drilled a hole outside threw the siding and into the center of a box I now have assembled on the outside wall with a lock on the door. I love this product! I'm proud of the final result. My girlfriend was impressed too I believe when she walked by midstream and said: "Wow that looks pretty complicated." It's not though really. Simple 3 wire hook up directions are clear and quite simple. Just make sure to note exact locations of each color wire and EXACTLY where if you choose to disassemble it as I did. I also like how there are no switches or remotes to make use of the product once it's finally assembled it's plug and go. Excellent! That way I don't need to write out complicated instructions for her to use it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GoRyobi2015 Good quality at a good price
It may not be fancy but it does the job at less than half the price of others. Easy to mount. I chose not to hard wire it so I added a plug. Mounted just a few feet inside the garage door and the 18 foot cord is fine whether I back in to driveway or park nose in. I use it on a Ford Focus Electric. After round trip to work and back it took about 9 to 10 hours to charge on 110 outlet but now, only about 2 hours. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baker001 Easy purchase, easy install. Used on 2016 Chev Volt
Simple set-up, though the documentation on the jumper position to lower the amperage if you do not have a 40amp feed was somewhat confusing at first. After a few minutes of studying the diagram and looking at the board it became apparent that the wire fits into a position on the jumper connector itself rather than onto the circuit board. Installation took less than an hour, though my electrical panel had a 30amp feed available.
Great to charge the car in 4hrs max. The cord is flexible and the plug in connection feels sturdy and of good quality. Somewhat better than the 120v factory one.
The shipment box is done very well, though quite a bit bigger than the unit. It folds down to store in case of a warrenty problem later on. Overall great price and value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Singh excellent quality excellent value
Excellent product excellent quality.
this EVSE has very basic features but it very high quality!
it has very basic feature but guarantees you the GE quality. very sturdy! does the job really well!
it doest have any smart feature or to that matter it doesn't even have a on-off switch or holder for j1772 connector ;) which i think are not that important. it has the controller built-in which detects when the plug is connected to the EV and then automatically turns-on. turns-off when u disconnect the connector from your EV.
you will have to drill a hole and supply your own input cable and conduit. which is very easy and your installer will have no issues with that.
it is a 30 amp charging station which connects to a 40 amp circuit breaker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BPeterson Simple, Cost Effective Charger
We installed this at our office in order to charge a 2012 Nissan Leaf. Very easy installation, simple design, and was far cheaper than some other Level 2 chargers out there. We also like the LED indicator
