If 18' cable is adequate, is the Leviton charger a better deal than the group buy, since it is on sale at $726?
Price isn't bad if you're not going to need longer cable. Interesting to note that this Leviton charger can accommodate up to 9.6kW of power compared to 7.2kW on most 30A EVSE in this price range. If this is true, this EVSE can be a good option for future-proofing your EV charging needs.

"These new EV chargers deliver up to 9.6kW of power and offer a more compact, affordable, easy to use and easy to install solution to electric vehicle charging. "

I'm pretty sure the 9.6kW charger is the 40Amp one. The 30amp charger is 7.2kW

That's correct. The 9.6KW charger is the EVR40 and costs $1,032 on amazon with no discounts.

Price has dropped to $716.50 now. I placed my order 4 days ago and just received a shipping notification today so definitely not 1 to 2 months wait.

$800 for made in Canada EV duty charger. $20 extra for delivery.
Bourgeois Chevrolet in Rawdon, Quebec let me buy the Elmec EVC30 with my new Volt and wrote me a $500 check after I paid for it. This way I have the full price Receipt for $350 cashback from QC gov incentive.

Ended up costing me a $75 after taxes.

Oh forgot to say they had stacks of boxes in the back so no shipping fee either.

The EVDuty is a better deal at $800. You get a plug-in type, 40amp unit with longer cord.

I've received 5 quotes from 5 different licensed electricians; only two of the five are 'reasonable' and comparable to each other. Remaining 3 are off the wall.
Best to get your own estimates. Mine range from $700 - $1800

Can you post the company names(and location) of the reasonable prices? I have someone coming on Thursday to provide me with a quote to install.

Thanks for the details! My basement​ is unfinished. Unfortunately, my garage is finished so I will need a special conduit in the garage.

Is it required to have a disconnect box installed? If not, I think its a good ideal to have it installed , Home Depot sells then for around $20


Need a way to discount power , line of sight. Same as how your A/C is installed.

If you have plug in box then you do not need it as you can unplug the cable to cut power .
