If you’re looking for an EVSE that will look good on your wall, has a good name and will simply exude class without breaking the bank, then the WattStation by General Electric is just the charger that you need. With ease of use included in the design, the GE WattStation uses a simple NEMA 6-50P plug for its supply (40A/240V); meaning, there’s no hardwire installation needed. You simply mount the unit on the bracket, plug it into your supply socket and your car will be charged in no time.
As a level 2 EVSE the maximum output for this unit is 7.2kW at 30 Amps which means that your electric vehicle will be charged at a much quicker rate than with level 1 chargers. With WIFI, Ethernet or Cellular, you will be able to connect to your WattStation via a user-friendly cloud service that allows you to monitor, control and configure your charging station while at the same time gaining information that could help you notice and diagnose problems. A QR code on your WattStation will also connect your mobile phone to the device so that you can check your status from anywhere.
This unit also comes with a NEMA 3R rating which means that it is compatible for both indoor and outdoor use since it is weather resistant to snow, rain, sleet and even a thin film of ice. Apart from all the other features, the sleek interface and bright LED makes it a breeze to see how your EV’s charge is coming along. The GE WattStation received a 4.8 out of 5 star rating by Amazon users.
