    my 500e charging station research

    Hi There,

    You will want to apply for ChargePoint and Blink cards so you can use the most public stations.
    http://www.chargepoint.com
    http://www.blinknetwork.com

    Get the PlugShare smartphone app to find chargers and their status.

    The 500e has a 6.6kw onboard charger so you will want a 30 Amp 240V full phase Level 2 home charging station (aka EVSE for Electric Vehicle Supply/Safety Equipment) with a standard J1772 plug.

    You will need to determine if you can accommodate a double 40 Amp breaker in your panel (an electrician can help) then pull 8 gauge 3/1 (3 conductors plus ground) wire from the panel to where you want your charging station. Another question is whether you want a portable, plug-in charging station or a hardwired one. If plugin then which plug? So you install the matching socket.

    I just researched charging stations for my 500e and I believe the cheapest reputable one available is:

    Next would be one of these:

    http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-GE-EV-...6#.Ud3SZBajO-I (hard wired, no plug)

    http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/2030019...N#.Ud3YSRajO-I

    Of course I did it the hard way and made my own by cutting up a Tesla charger for compatibility with my wife's charging socket.

    It does work well but is $900 and 2-3 hours work for someone pretty handy.

    Hope this saves some work for others.

    Are these pretty much the choices on the market still?

    Looks like the juice box is now the least expensive option.

    Seems a good enough post of reference to merit that. Done.

    Juicebox, $488, 30 amps 25 foot cable, with wall "hook" for business end.

    I bought mine as a kit, $358 to my door, don't know if that option is still available. 1 year later and no issues at all.

    I'm sure everyone has made one of these while researching level 2 charging options. Or maybe not.

    Here's a spreadsheet that calculates theoretical charging time based on a Evse's maximum output rate... good if you don't have a socket that can support a 30amp Evse, or want to go with a cheaper one, and want to calculate the price/time tradeoffs.
    I've left the generic EVSE output value cell editable, so you can put in your own output rate, and see the charge time.

    Since this thread hasn't had any action lately I thought I'd post what I installed for a level 2 EVSE. First off I installed a NEMA 10-30 on a defunct electric stove 40 amp circuit.
    Total $16 with 10-30 outlet and 3 feet of 6 gauge wire. I used the heavier gauge for possible future upgrade to NEMA 14-50 when I get my Tesla.

    The EVSE is only 16 amps but charges from empty to full just under 7 hours. I got mine on eBay for $217 shipped, it looks like they are only $201 shipped from the link they provide (didn't find this until today). I have only been using it for a little over a week but so far so good. Hope this helps.
