I bought the first Schneider Electric wallbox in the entire northeast. 2 big problems.
1). wOULDN't work with a tesla roadster until i desensitized the 5 ma ground fault back to 20 ma. like every body else has their wallboxes set to.
2). Even though "UL Recognized", the thing overheated when charging my Roadster at 30 amps for 8 hours. I fixed it by getting rid of their dopey faston lugs and putting in box lugs... Now it runs stone cold.
To answer CP's question - even the expensive wall boxes used to give you less than useless information, so you might as well buy the cheapest thing that works.
Example: the 16 ampere overpriced LeGrande thing that came with the Fisker had 4 status lights that were always on. What was that supposed to prove?
