Even though this charger is powerful, the first feature that really jumped at us was the fact that it’s guaranteed to be reliable. Aerovironment has been instrumental in the automotive industry for over 20 years by assisting manufacturers in designing and testing battery systems.
With names such as Mitsubishi, Nissan, Fiat, Kia, Ford, Volvo and Hyundai backing them and even granting Aerovironment the distinguished honour of being the preferred charging partner of these companies, you can easily see why we say reliable. The Aerovironment RS EV Charger is a level 2 EVSE that has a very powerful output of 30 Amps/240V at 7.2kW that has the ability of charging your chosen electric vehicle up to 5 times faster than the usual level 1 chargers.
Installation is simple and easy since the RS uses a NEMA 6-50 plug that attaches to an applicable wall socket while your unit gets hung on a supplied wall mount which shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to install. The cable is 25 feet in length and the unit has stowable storage for the cable so that it is out of your way when not in use.
This unit is also designed for both indoor and outdoor use and has been designed and tested to meet and exceed the international UL requirements for safety; so much so that Aerovironment has placed a 3-year warranty on the RS. This device also features auto-restart in the event of a power outage and an auto-short circuit cut off.
