There are three variables: Power level, installation type and cord length. View the buying guide to decide which station is right for you.
Power Level: The station's maximum charging speed depends on your car's onboard charger—check your vehicle's specifications. For either option, you may need to upgrade your panel.
Installation Type: Home can be installed inside or outside. Depending on which version you want, you may need some electrical work.
Charging Cord: The cord has a universal connector that charges any EV on the road. It's up to you what length fits your parking style.
Plugging into a 110V outlet (level 1) only provides a maximum of 5 miles of range per hour of charging. To charge a 100 mile range EV from empty on a level 1 station would take approximately 20-25 hours versus just 4 hours with a level 2 charger.
The majority of home chargers are dumb, non-networked stations. Because Home is networked and Wi-Fi enabled, drivers have access to a host of features including:
Yes – Home is durable and suitable for outdoor and indoor use. Outdoor installation requires the hardwire version.
The plug version can be easily uninstalled (unplugged) and moved. To move the hardwired version, you'll need to call an electrician.
Home is just 7 inches wide by 11 inches high and 4 inches deep (wall mount) and just under 7 inches deep when the connector is docked. It takes up less wall space than a sheet of paper.
Home is for residential use only. You should not install Home at a business. If installed at a business, the station's warranty will be voided.
