Answer: 
The cable to plug it into the 30 amp outlet is only 2 or 3 feet long, so unless you use an extension (which I don't recommend, but could be found at an RV supply store) you will need to have it close to the outlet. The charging cable is over 12 feet and easily reaches our Leaf any of 3 bays of our garage. If you're planning for out door use my advice may not be helpful.

The cord is about a foot long, so it needs to be placed above and very close to the outlet. The other cord (that plugs into the car) is pretty long. I placed the evse about 8 feet from the garage door, and the cord is long enough to charge it outside, or when parked in the garage (if pulled in backwards or forwards)

I think the answers so far miss what the questioner is asking. First, strictly speaking, this not a charger. It is an EVSE, (electric vehicle supply equipment). It is charging equipment that SAFELY delivers either 120 volt or 240 volt AC power to the car. The charger is built into the car. The Volt has an included standard Level 1; 8 or 12 amp 120 volt EVSE charging cord, ("charger") that comes with it. Read More

The Volt has an included standard Level 1; 8 or 12 amp 120 volt EVSE charging cord, ("charger") that comes with it. The questioner is asking about the Volt Level 2 "charger," which is up to 16 amps at 240 volts. This "charger," (and other 30 amp "chargers"), will charge the Volt, (up to 2015), at the same speed as the Level 2, 16 amp, 240 volt Chevy Volt "charger" will BECAUSE the built in charger in the Volt is only designed to use 15 Amps so the Volt will only draw 15 amps or less. The advantage of this and other 30 amp "chargers" is for your next or other electric vehicle that is, or will probably be designed to draw the full 30 amps and charge faster. Read Less

Answer: 
Amps DO make a difference is charge time, not just voltage. Compare 12 amp 220V charge station to 30amp or higher charge station and there will be a significant difference in charge time. Also consider Level 3 chargers are in the range of 200amps supply, but are direct DC.

No. The relevant factors are that you're using 220V AC. So you won't get a faster charge with higher Amps. By the way, you will be drawing 16 Amps, not 30 Amps.

I'm not sure about the volt's capabilities but in my case I have a ford focus that will recharge from empty in about 4 hours with the GE, vs. the leaf which I understand would take more than double that. It has to do with the capability of the cars built in charger, the GE charging station is more like a power supply that can handle up to a 30 AMP demand.

The 220/240 volt GE charger that you are referring to will charge twice as fast as the standard charger that is supplied with the Chevy Volt.

Answer: 
It is very large and heavy. It mounts on the wall and takes a very specific outlet, NEMA 6-50, similar to an electric dryer plug. I suppose if you do not choose the hard wire option you could unplug it and take it with you but to use it you need 220/240 service and a NEMA 6-50 outlet at your destination.
This is why they include the portable 110 charger that uses a normal household outlet.

Hello Dan and thank you for your question.
The GE Residential Electric Vehicle (EV) Level 2 WattStation (Model # EVWSWBC-CP01) has a NEMA-60 plug that is cord-connected to 40 amps. The station is hung onto the wall for regular use and can be moved to another location (for example when you move). This would be considered “portable” as compared to the hard-wired Level 2 WattStation.

EV Charger Indoor/Outdoor Level-2 WattStation Wall Mount with Plug is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bummer I've had mine for less than two years...two years... I'm a electrician and inspector seems they should last longer than that. Says unable to charge..out of warranty . 120v volt charger works fine. Except the 12 hour charge time. Again, two years...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Charger Initially we were a bit concerned about the size of this unit, but it's Great. Electrician had no problem with the install, plugs in easily and the unit turns off when the charge is complete.
Date published: 2016-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality, some minor drawbacks The GE Wattstation is a fine quality wall charger-point. (I say Charge Point because NONE of these are actually "chargers", the "charger" is already built into your car. These are Electrical Safety access points). On the inside, the Wattstation has industrial-grade relays, fuses and connections - clearly built for reliability and long life. On the outside it is a sleek, modern looking unit with a curiously bright lighted ring around the front plug nest, which is eye-catching, but serves no significant purpose except perhaps as a large nightlight for the garage... though in itself is somewhat useful. While the unit is on, the white lighted ring remains on drawing only 5-watts of power in standby mode. However you can press a button to turn the unit completely off. The unit has two indicators on the front; one lights green when the charge point is actively providing power to your car, the other will light red only if there is a fault condition. The front panel is gloss black plastic. The unit comes with a 20ft car cord which is adequate length for most people. Five more feet of cord would have vastly improved the versatility of this unit. When connected, you hear a large industrial relay "clack", and charging begins. There is a slight hum from the unit - a result of the relay coil being energized. The unit comes with a unique wall mount bracket that screws to the wall, but holds the unit itself by way of capturing three large cut-outs on the back. It has a locking key to prevent wall removal... but will allow you to take the unit with you easily after unlocking it from the bracket. This might be useful if you live in an apartment - but it is difficult to see this being used in practice. Some people appear to complain about a "loud humming or buzzing noise" while the unit is operating. I have learned that this is actually tiny vibrations of the relay, when it is energized. If the user did not solidly mount the unit to the wall, or if the unit is loose in some way... that relay vibration will resonate through the unit making the sound much LOUDER. If you install the unit solidly and securely... any noise during charging will be barely noticeable. The Source Power cord is a NEMA 6-50P, 240V 40A, cord - only 1 foot long. I replaced/extended my source power cord because it was just too short. Otherwise you would have to have the source power outlet immediately next to this unit... which might hinder you from neatly wrapping the car cord around the unit frame. This unit is HUGE. At the front face the unit is 24-inches top to bottom, 16-inches wide, and after being mounted, stands 7-inches away from the wall. However it is very convenient to simply loop the cord around the unit body. It is simple to install if you already have the 220V outlet very nearby. One long (hidden) bracket mounts to the wall with three screws... you then simply lift the charger up and lock it to the bracket, then plug it into a 220V socket - similar to a clothes dryer. It comes with two security keys for that lock which is on the bottom of the charge unit. The front plug "nest" protects the car cord plug from damage and debris. The plug nest has a METAL receiver hook which the METAL plug latch locks to, when not in use. PROS: - High Quality - Industrial grade components inside - Arguably, good looks (modern?) - High quality, flexible car cord - The J1772 car connector uses a METAL latch (not cheap plastic) - It is SIMPLE to install. CONS: - It's BIG - The car cord is only 20 ft long (but adequate) - The source power cord is a SHORT 1 foot length I can recommend this unit, despite its few drawbacks. The quality of the internal components are industrial-grade, most of us would expect nothing less from GE's industrial power division. I am extremely pleased. I expect many, many solid years of durability. The price is very competitive especially when compared to smaller units that do not appear to use as high a quality of components.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works well but is noisy and bulky The Watt Station is much larger than the one Nissan arranges for Nissan Leaf customers. However, I was able to save about $400 by putting up the Watt Station instead. It is very bulky and takes up a lot of room on the wall. The instructions called for screws that do not do not fit the holes in the mounting bar. I have been using my Watt Station for three days and it seems to be working fine for regular charging. However, it did not work wit the car's timed charge setting last night. I have yet to figure out why. Lastly, the Watt Station is very noisy. There is a loud hummmm when charging is in progress, but that doesn't seem to hurt anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. This is a 30A, not 40A as advertised, but 30 is so much better than most of the competition at only 15A or so. It's a solid unit with a 20mA GFCI instead of the oversensitive competition, some at 5mA which can't even charge a Leaf at times. We use it for testing the Tango for compatibility. It works flawlessly for up to 30A. Wish it were 40A so that the Tango could charge at maximum rate.
Date published: 2012-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with my Nissan Leaf. The GE WattStation is doing a fine job charging my new Nissan Leaf. It is an attractive unit, was relatively simple for the electricians to install, and has worked well. My only complaints have to deal with wanting a slightly longer charging cord (say 20 feet), and the as of this writing unresolved problems with the reports of some Leaf owners of problems with the unit. We have had no problems with it whatsoever though.
Date published: 2012-07-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice Unit design looks good installed on a wall or a post. Cord wraps around unit for clean look when not charging. LED light around where the charging handle is stored is a nice feature although I would have given it 5 stars if that light was at the end of the charging handle-small issue and no issue at all if your charger is located close to the charging side of your car or in a lit garage. Overall an excellent choice for a quality charger that's easy on the eyes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great! I've owned this unit for about two months. Today we noticed the car ( 2015 VW e-golf ) wasn't charging after plugging the vehicle in. I unplugged the unit, plugged back in, heard the sharp "click" from the watt station telling me it engaged but no voltage from the unit. After flipping the breaker on and off we were unable to get the unit to charge again. A bit pricy for not having zigbee or wi-fi. When I return it, I'll have to consider a different brand
