AeroVironment 240V EVSE-RS moveable home EV charging station
By Anthony Capkun
October 16, 2012 – AeroVironment Inc. has expanded its EVSE-RS home charging product line with the EVSE-RS Plug-In, which “easily and securely” plugs into a dedicated 240V outlet, eliminating the need to hardwire the charging station into the home. The station is SAE-J1772-compliant and recharges all battery electric (BEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) vehicles incorporating the SAE standard. The EVSE-RS Plug-In charger slides in and out of a wall-mounted bracket, allowing drivers to take their charging station with them when they move, and allows them to charge at other frequently visited residences, such as relatives’ homes or vacation homes equipped with a dedicated 240V outlet. The station comes with an installation kit and mounting template and retails for $1099 US.
