Leviton launches 40A Level 2 charging station

8 May 2012

Leviton launched its Level 2 (240V, 40A) charging station at EVS26 in conjunction with the unveiling of the Toyota RAV4 EV (earlier post). The next-generation Leviton charging station can provide 9.6 kW output, and will charge the Toyota 41.8 kWh pack RAV4 EV in approximately six hours. It also includes a 25-foot charging cable which offers flexibility in the mounting location.

The weatherproof, thermoplastic NEMA Type 4 enclosure makes the device safe for use in both indoor and outdoor locations. The unit comes standard with Leviton’s patent-pending “cord-connected” system to plug into a power outlet, with the capability to be converted to hard-wire for outdoor applications.

The 40A charging station includes a 10-year limited product warranty when installed by Leviton’s EVSE-certified electrical contractors. Leviton designed its charging station with supervisory, contactor and ground monitoring circuits, as well as built-in communication to verify proper connection before charging can commence. The device’s “Auto-Restart” feature enables charging to restart following a minor fault, thereby reducing the chance of being stranded with an undercharged battery.

The charging station will be available for purchase through Leviton’s customer website for Toyota owners later this year.

Earlier in April, the Evr-Green 320 Level 2 Home Charging Station which provides up to 32 amps at 240 volts AC (7.7 kW output). The Evr-Green 320 Level 2 Home Charging Station includes a three-year limited warranty.

Also in April, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. selected Leviton as its preferred Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment provider for customer and dealer EV charging.

I am wondering if there is a reference to know what the pricing for a new residential Level II charging station should be. Most of the dealers I find online do not list prices. These dealer http://webosolar.com/store/en/85-ev-charging-stations show prices but IMO they are overpriced. Then you have places like Home Depot where the stations they advertise are not available. I am having a hard time figuring out what is a fair price to pay and where to buy.
