AeroVironment introduces portable home charging station
The SAE-J1772-compliant charger plugs into a dedicated 240 volt outlet and slides in and out of a wall-mounted bracket, allowing EV drivers to take their charging station with them.
AeroVironment (NASDAQ: AVAV) announced the expansion of its EVSE-RS home charging product line with the introduction of the new EVSE-RS Plug-In, which plugs into a dedicated 240 volt outlet, eliminating the need to hardwire the charging station into a home.
The SAE-J1772-compliant charger slides in and out of a wall-mounted bracket, allowing EV drivers to take their charging station with them to relatives’ homes, vacation homes, or any place equipped with a dedicated 240 volt outlet.
“The EVSE-RS Plug-In is easy to install, use and move,” said AeroVironment Senior VP Wahid Nawabi. “All EV owners need is a dedicated 240 volt outlet, and they can easily install the wall mount and plug-in charger at their home. If they want to remove it, they simply unplug, slide it out of the bracket and take it with them to another location.”
The EVSE-RS Plug-In displays a green light when the station is ready to charge, and stops automatically when charging is complete. Safety features include safeguards against live power, a breakaway safety cable and automatic ground fault monitoring. The station comes with an installation kit and mounting template and retails for $1,099.
