The home ev charger has LED indicator for gauging charging status, and a hardwired on/off switch to completely cut power to the unit when not in use.

  1. Does this charger have a variable rate charge available, or does it only charge at the higher 240v rate? IOW, are the 16 amp and 30 amp capabilities selectable anytime?

    1. 240VAC only. No 120VAC OPTION. The on board charger in the car and the ELSE must agree on a safe current before charging can start.

  2. Will it charge at a specific time? The rates are much cheaper at mid-night where I live and need to schedule it to charge from 12:00 am to 6:00 am.
