Before you replace your broken Voltec, if you are comfortable opening it up, check the two line fuses. Replacing those world be much cheaper than buying a new unit. http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?251770-Lesson-learned-on-buying-a-used-level-2-charger

If that doesn't fix it, you can replace the internal parts and reuse the case and charge cable. http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?183826-My-dead-L2-Voltec-240V-EVSE-upgrade-project

Or you can sell your broken one and buy a new one with a warranty from Amazon.

I got a ChargePoint for Christmas. Best present I ever got... love it. Had a 220 outlet installed in the garage when we built it so I had mine up and running in about 10 minutes.
Highly, Highly recomment going with a 220v charger.

Thanks. I replaced both fuses about 2 years ago .Currently they check out OK. Probably something else. I look it over once more time before I order a Clipper Creek.

Carl brings up a great point. Many times the only issue ends up being a blown fuse on the line coming in, which is easily fixed for only a few bucks.

Ah, guess I should've looked for your response before replying. ;)
