Default Build your own EV charger. open-evse Open Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE)

Ok let me start by saying it really is not a charger. All the EV vehicles have the chargers built in you just need to supply power and communication and safety to get it to charge your EV.

There are commercial units available they are expensive and not very flexible. Open EVSE will let you charge with 120 or 240 volts. This will do 3.3KW- 10KW charging. And beyond.

I bought OpenEVSE Plus v2
