I got the Autel Maxicharger from Amazon for $450. I did my own research and for the price it does everything I want. It connects to my cellphone by Bluetooth. In my 2 weeks of use, I have been very satisfied.Trying to research what Level 2 charger to get. Seems like a 40amp is more standard. I would like some screen on it, but that is rare.
What level 2 charger did you get and why?
What is your review of it... "would you buy this product again?"
Where did you buy it from and how much do it cost?
Yes, I don't really know why my dealer just automatically ordered me the CP50. All he asked me was if I had a place to plug it in, which I thought I did. Salesman acted as if this was the one that goes with the 2022 EV6JuiceBox 40amp. 14-50 Plug. It was the highest rated unit on several EV sites so I went with it...
You must have gotten a special deal if the CPH50 came with the EV6. I sort of feel mine came with it by the way the salesman presented the deal. I had to pay for it, but they included it in my car loan saying the car warranty would then cover it.Installed the ChargePoint CPH50 in my garage since it came with my EV6. Had an electrician put in a 50A circuit for it. My utility has no incentive program for any EV charging stations nor any special rate for charging at night. I don't care at all since I am on a Solar Net-Metering contract and I can charge for free day or night whenever I want.
That is a reason I forgot to mention. Already with temps regularly below freezing the cord has stayed extremely flexible. No complaints.I have a ChargePoint Home Flex hardwired in my garage on a 60A circuit. I went with the CP because we have harsh winters and this unit had the most flexible cord in cold weather. I also liked that it has smart functionality.
The other poster either got theirs included for free as a dealer throw-in (or, perhaps negotiated with the dealer to include it at no additional cost) or chose it as their "free" gift for having purchased a First Edition trim; FWIW I got my CPH50 for free for being an FE buyer.You must have gotten a special deal if the CPH50 came with the EV6.

Thanks for the tip. I am concerned that the one I have is so specialized, I would be unlikely to find a 6-20 outlet. It looks like this one only uses a 14-50 plug. The one I have now has a 120 volt adapter cord. Does ZenCar have decent customer service? The one I have now (Duosida) have a number that Amazon gave me, but they don't answer. Not sure about the safety credentials also on my current one. I have a CP50 on order but wanted a travel charger. This one sounds pretty flexable so may be more likely to use it if necessary.I just purchased an OpenEVSE 48 amp unit earlier this week for my home fixed charger. Unfortunately, there was no sale on the 48 A version and there's a 4 week backorder for all units. So hopefully I'll get mine a week before Christmas (I still don't have my EV6 yet so it's no big deal). I chose OpenEVSE because it's fully user-repairable and the software it runs is open source. It has a high degree of customizability. I really like that the unit doesn't rely on an app or web service, everything is local. It's also one of the only charging stations with a built-in screen.
After I get my EV6, I'll probably also get a portable 40 A charger for travel use. I'm leaning towards the Keruida unit (made by ZenCar) since it has many adjustment (amp) settings. Most portable units cheap out and only output a max of 32 amps. It's pretty difficult to find a portable 40 A charger with key adjustable settings of 24 and 16 A. This unit has setpoints of 40, 32, 24, 20, and 16 A. I wish it had a 12 A setting but I can just use the EV6's charge settings to adjust for that.
Unfortunately I don't know the answer to that since I haven't needed to contact them. I still haven't purchased the charger yet.Does ZenCar have decent customer service?
