A:  Yes, the E-Golf vehicles sold in USA have the J-1772 plug in port. This GE charging unit is a J-1772 standard, Level 2 charger.

by|Oct 15, 2017

    A:  As I've said, in many response answers, the PLUG configuration is universal and should fit any vehicle sold for the US market. That is how many retailers have charging stations on their property to serve all.

    Answer This Question

    A:  That is fine, I have mine in a 50A breaker to future proof a little.

    by|Apr 16, 2018

      A:  Yes, This GE charger will work, but the wiring of the unit to connector for the 6-50R 50 amp outlet is beyond the skill set of the average DIY. The GE charger will only draw up to 30-32 amps, which is well below the 50amps available. So, you are safe in that regard. The GE charger recommends "direct wiring: to the power source, but a 6-50R male connector plug could be wired to "plug-in to" the 6-50R outlet. Again, using the proper wire size and wiring to the male plug is not easily done. It is also crucial to have proper "grounding" of the GE unit when it is plugged into the 6-50R outlet. A professional electrician should be able to do this in about an hour. Try to permanently mount the GE charger as close as possible to your 6-50R outlet to minimize the length of wiring needed for the male plug which will connect the unit to the outlet. The GE Unit is not "portable" and should be permanently attached to a wall.

      A:  Why you have a 60 amp breaker in the garage is beyond me unless you're a welder. A breaker is only there to interrupt a current overage. With the 30 amp unit, you should have no problems unless something else is put on the same circuit which combined exceeds the 60 amps.

      Q:I just ordered this and was told by the Kia dealer this is combatable with my Kia Soul EV. Wondering the truth to this.

      Answer This Question

      A:  The plug configuration is standardized across the EV industry. That's why charging stations at various public locations are compatible with all EV cars. My GE unit works flawlessly with my Prius Prime and also with visiting plug-ins.

      by|Sep 19, 2017

      A:  Yes, the KIA EV is compatible in that the KIA EV uses the SAE J1772 charging port, and the GE unit has the SAE J1772 charging connector/plug. You are good to charge, once you properly wire and install the GE Unit to your power source.

        While I have only had the device working for a couple of weeks, it has worked as advertised. 30 amp circuit and a 24 amp draw. It was a little difficult to install only because I was replacing a lighter duty unit from a previous electric car that I had owned. The old installation was not compatible with the new GE unit, so I had to adapt the installation. The cord is a little on the short side compared to many units, but the value is unsurpassed.

          I hired an electrician to install the charger for $450. It's very easy to plug into the car and to unplug. It chargers the car quickly. I was surprised that the box did not include instructions or a feature booklet. It did include instructions on how to install the charger but those were really for the electrician.

          I purchased this model based on best value and GE reputation for standing behind their product. One thing that is not mention on the HD description is that you should mount it in shaded location. You probably can overheat electrical components if mounted in direct sunlight. That did alter my original mounting location, but overall I like the new one. I had vacant 40 amp breaker from an electric stove that I decided to use. A trip to my electrical supplier and $90 later I was able to complete installation that included 1/2" metal conduit, 8 gauge for both hots and ground, and miscellaneous bits and boxes. The run from the panel to the box was about 50'. I was able to get into the charging box from the back. There is just enough room but I wouldn't recommend doing it if you are not comfortable with careful drilling through, thoroughly cleaning metal shavings from and around the circuit board and sealing around the incoming conduit. Additionally I did not used supplied mounting brackets. I just drilled through on the inside and used screws with silicone to attach the box to my house. In the end much cleaner look. Since I had 40 amp breaker, no jumper configuration was needed to get the box running. Charging cord length is just right, and the cord is very supple and pliable, making it easy to move around when plugging it in or out. Plug itself feels very solid, fits flawlessly into my Ford Fusion Energy socket. The LED on the box, in my opinion, is just enough to let you know what is the status of the charging. Once my car's batteries are depleted, it will charge them to full in just over two hours. That means that when you come from work, plug it in, eat dinner, and by the time you are ready to go out on the town it's ready! It's been a little over a week with it and it is performing like a champ. I highly recommend getting it! You will not be disappointed. As far as the less than stellar reviews go, people must have gotten defective units or returned ones that were messed up by people that didn't knew what they were doing. Mine was in perfect shape, properly packaged, 100% functional, and installation was easy. Buy it! And if your not good with electrical installation I urge you to hire a licensed electrician.

          Fair price, quick shipping, good quality and works great! Easy to install with moderate knowledge of electricity and skills. Charge time is 1/4 of what it was with the level one charger.

          This is a simple “What you see is what you get” no frills level 2 charger. I paid an electrician $75 to install it and mount it on the wall of my garage wall just beneath my electric panel. I have not had it for very long but, so far, it works as advertised and cuts the charge time for my Ford Fusion Energi by at least half. I feel it is a good buy considering the amperage. I had considered a less expensive 15 amp portable model but most reviews advised heavier duty models for possible future needs. Considering price, utility and value, I highly recommend this charger.
