ClipperCreek introduces the smallest 240V plug-and-cord-connected EV charge station available

ClipperCreek has announced the availability of the smallest cord and plug connected, 20A, Level 2 EV charging station on the market. Based on the LCS-25, this new product features a plug-in connection to make installation inexpensive and fast. With a standard 25-foot charge cable, there is no need to juggle cars to plug-in.

Customers with existing outlets can purchase the LCS-25P and install it in a matter of minutes by simply attaching it to the wall and plugging the LCS-25P into a 240V outlet. The LCS-25P has an introductory retail price of $549, and carries a 3-year warranty.

The LCS-25, which normally sells for $595, is currently on sale for $495.

All ClipperCreek products, including the new LCS-25P, are compatible with and approved for use on all plug-in vehicles including the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Ford plug-in vehicles, Tesla Model S, Honda Fit Electric, Toyota Rav4 EV, and Toyota Plug-In Prius.

Glad to see prices coming down. I would want support for at leats 30 amps, however.

NL...a Chinese firm will soon produce similar units (20 Amps or 30 Amps for less than half that price. (free shipping via China Post included)

That is almost the exact size and form factor of the "convenience cord" Ford includes with its plug-in cars.  It might even be smaller.  The price is similarly sky-high, though I guess you do get Level II capability out of it.

I wonder if it is compatible with my Zoe, she not having the option to charge on a normal outlet. This could be a possible solution for charging from a normal wall socket which is not possible by default.

Important is whether the thing has a current limiter, so you can select if you want to charge on 32A, 16A, 10A or whatever, so you don't blow a fuse upon plugging in.

There is such a solution already for the ZOE, a sort of hobby project by an Italian guy: http://renault-zoe.forumpro.fr/t2524-le-crd-de-davide-rizzo
