Hi Adam,

Thank you for your question.

The MFG confirmed that The CP01 is rated for outdoor use and has an on/off button. The CP02 is rated for indoor use only and does not have an on/off button. Functionally they are the same.

Hope this helps.

The answer to both questions is yes. No brainer installation.

The primary problem people have is insufficient service amperage to their house, which is unrelated to the charger. If you have an electric stove, a/c, electric water heater, and other 220V appliances you might experience a power problem. Most people are now upgrading to 200AMP service amperage to their homes. If you do this, it is smooth sailing.

The home owner that we installed the charger for had a 2013 Volt. As far as the speed that it can charge from 0-full I do not know. But I do know that at the time that we installed this charger and I still believe this to be true, it was that largest (fastest) charge that we could get. He has used it for about six months and had no problems with the device or the speed of the device.

The GE Wattstation installation guide says to "ensure a dedicated circuit, capable of supplying 30A at 208-240 VAC, is available", and "power feed must have a centrally grounded neutral in order for Wattstation to function correctly". It also recomends a 40 A upstream circuit breaker be used.
30 A would use 10-3 plus a ground wire.

I am using a 30 amp breaker, but the installer has offered to replace it with a 40 amp if we have issues with the breaker kicking. So far I have only had to reset it once. It may have been weather related as there was a storm the same day. Over 3000 miles of charging and one breaker reset, pretty reasonable IMHO.

If you're installing a new breaker for this system I would use the 40 amp as described in the instructions.

while I'm not an electrician only an EV owner. you can do the math. the charger is a 7.7KWH charger which on a 240 v circuit at full load is 30 amp hence the need for a 40 amp circuit.

IF you know you are only pulling less than 24 amps (5.7 kwh) you will be safe on a 30 amp circuit. If someone plugs in and draws more the 30 amps the breaker will most likely trip and/or you risk a fire with not having the adequate overload protection.

Yes, you can hardwire. There is a heavy cable coming out of the unit that is about 1' long. It comes with 3 prong 220V male plug. If you want to hardwire, your electrician can cut off that plug and wire it in however you want.

BTW, I like the idea of a plug. If I ever need to troubleshoot I can exchange my charger with the one my buddy has, to see whether charger or supply is at fault. Hard to do that if you are hard wired.

You have to buy the one sold as an installed unit. If you change, remove, or extend the supplied plug you will void the GE warranty. Not a chance you want to take if something goes wrong with the charge station or your car. I had an electrician install a 220V/50amp outlet just below where I mounted the station. My two cents.

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. But to be fair, there is a 220/240 home charger that is available through Chevrolet that performs about the same. They estimate the cost to be around $500.00 and the average installation cost to be $1475.00 in information I was able to get from GM's Volt website.

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.

I'm answering my own question. After extensive research, I got no definitive answer. Since the GE charger met the Japanese electric standards for rechargeable cars, I decided to go with it. So far, it seems to work well with the I-Miev.

I'm disappointed in the lack of solid info about electrics and their chargers. I guess that's the price to pay for being an early adaptor....

Greetings psyfly,

My name is Tom, from Home Depot's How to Community. I am here today fielding a few product questions and saw yours. The Mitsubishi MiEV's recommended charging method is a Level 2 system which utilizes a home charging dock. That is what the GE charger you are looking at does. You should however, check with Mitsubishi to determine if testing has yet been done on the GE product. There was a time in 2011 that they only had tested level 2 systems manufactured by Eaton.

Hope that helps.

Question

Have the Home Depot's residential charging stations been tested with a Fisker Karma?

I have read that some of the residential charging stations will work fine with cars like the Chevy Volt or the Nissan Leaf, but are not effective with high performance vehicles like the Tesla or the Fisker Karma. Please provide any information you have about which of these products will work with the Fisker Karma. Thank you.

The Tesla Roadster II has a on board charger that is 30 amp or greater. I can't speak to the older Roadster, Model S or the Fisker. The dealer selling you an EV should be able to address these questions.

I think GE makes this only as pictured. A neighbor of mine is a rep for GE and I will ask him about colors. If they make optional colors I will edit this post or write a new.

No. They seem to only offer the black, white and silver one. Note that while charging the inside lights up, and there re is a greenish light in the oval. Looks really cool!

Absolutely, and better than most of the competition that either limits to under 20A or trips at GFCI values well under 20mA. The GE is well-built and will charge at a full 30A with an excellent-quality SAE J1772 connector.

WattStation is not suitable for vehicles that require ventilation. It will provide fault indication if a vehicle requests fan ventilation, as per SAE J1772. The fault indicator will illuminate and turn solid red. (instead of green which indicates charging)

It plugs into a 40V 240V circuit. A circuit will have to be run and the appropriate outlet installed.
