High Power 9.6kW 40A Electric Vehicle Charging Station for sale

I bought a 2013 Nissan LEAF and love it! I have a heavy electrical background and was inspired when I saw some DIY units for sale here. I apologize to those who have already read the following before, I finally had to turn the matter over to the Nevada District Attorney.>> Work had been very slow and finally stopped. My employer is many months behind in paying the other employee and I. :cry: This has caused a severe financial hardship. It's a very stressful time with 2 little boys. I need to support my family anyway I can and am hoping to build and sell more EVSE's. Thanks for reading this, Now on to the fun stuff!!

I have a High Power 40A 9.6kW OpenEVSE based Electric Vehicle Charging Station for sale with a Custom 40A J1772 25 foot cable using a 63A plug. It’s running Chris’s latest OpenEVSE version 2.5plus main board. I used his best LCD.. the RGB model that changes colors for different status and Real Time Clock that allows you to set a delay timer great for those of us that can sign up with discounted night time electric rates. 40A 4ft. Power input cable with 14-50 plug. 50A high current contactor. I installed a Quad meter that is really cool looking. This unit operates at Level 2 on 240VAC. This is mounted in a heavy duty 1/4" thick walled 6x6x4 inch outdoor electrical junction box.

The cost is $492.00 plus $25 for UPS ground shipping in the continental USA. I offer a 1 Year Parts and Labor Warranty on all my EVSE’s

Also available in cheaper 40A version with Blue lcd/no timer, Basic Volt/Ammeter, and 40A 25’ BSA Custom whip with upgradeable length. $450 plus $25 for UPS ground shipping in the continental USA.

For many more options download my PDF: EVSE flyer.pdf?dl=0

It will charge any J1772 compliant car at up to 40A. However you can dial it back to whatever you have for a supply like a 30A dryer outlet.
The EVSE may be set in multiple steps between 6-40A in 2 amp increments. This advertises the available current to the EV which intern draws what it is designed for. You can go into the menu and set it for less if you take the EVSE on the road with you to fit what you may find in the wild.

I stop at 40A as this is what the cables are rated for. It is built to plug into a 14-50 outlet protected by a 50A circuit breaker. 40A is 80% of 50A and it is the maximum allowed for the homes outlet as a continuous load.

It will charge any J1772 compliant car at up to 40A

• OpenEVSE v.3Plus board
• 25ft. Custom 40A J1772 “Whip” with 63A high current plug and PET braided sleeving.
• The contactor is a quality 50A 240v unit
• The input cable is 50A 4ft. 6ga. with the popular NEMA 14-50 plug. This is the one all the Tesla guys have installed as well as the standard at RV parks!
• You can even use the PlugShare app and set the filters to include NEMA 14-50 and see all of them in the country, there are a surprising number of them.
• It has a RGB RTC LCD display. (Red Green Blue with Real Time Clock) This allows you to set a delay timer great for those of us that can sign up with discounted night time eclectic rates.
• I used a metal blue lighted ring Menu/Select button. With IP65 water resistance rating
• Heat shrink tubing used throughout.
• All parts are new.

Here is a video on me demo'ing the unit

If you would like the unit customized with a twist lock plug for example or something other than the NEMA 14-50 plug I can do that for the difference in parts. For example a L6-30.this would allow you to use many adapters. I also build custom adapters, see my other thread or PDF.

If you would like to see it in action on your EV we can arrange that thru private message at my home. Local pickup in Las Vegas near Smith's grocery on East Flamingo. Payment is by PayPal if shipped or cash for local pickup.

I worked hard on a nice PDF featuring some of the EVSE's I build, their many options and accessories. Check it out here for current pricing: EVSE flyer.pdf?dl=0

I get a lot of inquires about custom builds. YES I definitely take orders for anything you would like to see in your EVSE. Example I can build this one here for the same price and make the Whip longer for very few dollars per ft. up to 50ft. Private message me or if you have a general question you think the rest of the community can benefit from post it here.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: This EVSE is intended for use ONLY by responsible adults. Because they are hand-made, they are not UL listed - but are made from UL listed parts. 240v electricity is serious business and caution should be exercised while using any EVSE. For safety's sake, do not use this EVSE outdoors in inclement weather unless it is a model that specifically says Outdoor or Waterproof. You should always install a GFCI breaker not a standard one for any and all circuits a person can come in contact with. This EVSE has a GFCI built inside that protects from that point down line. (The J plug side of the EVSE is safe for outdoors in all weather). BY PLACING AN ORDER WITH US, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USING THIS EVSE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT FROM THEIR USE.

Henry, My sincere apologies. Yes I sell many different models. I build one then list it, build another and list it. I'm sorry I didn't search for a section rules sticky at the top and didn't find one. I backed up one section and still didn't see one. I didn't know there was any limits.

I have met some of the kindest and supportive Volt drivers here through the forum. I really enjoy the EV community. I would be happy to be a forum supporter/donator if this helps.

Thank You
