Just curious - is it better to have a variable charge rate so that at peak electricity rate periods you set it to draw less giving you a lower electricity bill or are there any other reasons it would be worth it?

I was interested in charging at a slower rate to extend battery life (less heat in the Summer) and to keep battery warm throughout the night in the winter, yet having the ability to charge faster when needed.

Probably depends on if your car allows it. Tesla’s for instance can select a charge rate in the car so that would work but depends on what you have

You need flo x5 charger. Ability to adjust the amps plus stop and start via WiFi is awesome.

I have the Chargepoint w/25' cord on mine. Makes it handy when I move things around in the driveway.ipassgas wrote: ↑ For those in the know, would this one be better (with 25ft cord @ 879.20) vs Costco Sun Country Highway ClipperCreek EV40P 32 Amp Plug-in EV Charging Station @ $849.99?
I don't need the WiFi application. Any suggestions?
After executive membership discount and after tax, Amazon is $50 more than Costco. I don't know much about these things. Is the Amazon one worth $50 more (I will never use the WiFi thing).

You have to have a panel rated for at LEAST 40amps to use this. The 32 amps need to be 80% of the load. And yes it’ll do 32amps all the time.

You can do it either way. Install it yourself (does not need inspection) and call it a day. You will only receive the rebate on the charger itself for 50% of its cost up to $500 total rebates.

When you configure the ChargePoint for the first time it asks if you've wired it on a 20A or 40A circuit (for 16A or 32A operation).
