EVoInnovate, $779 to $799

ChargeHub’s Recommendations According to your Needs

Most charging stations are quite different when taking a close look at all their attributes. That’s why some chargers are more adapted to certain needs and situations. We’ll try to give you a factual illustration of the most adapted charging station to different needs.

Which Charging Station is the Most Affordable?

Least Expensive with More than 7.2 kW (30 amps) of Power

The EVoInnovate is the most affordable charging station with 7.7 kW of power (32 amps) for $779. For this price,you get to charge up to five times faster and enjoy a 3 year warranty and elegant design. We would also like to mention the EVduty, a great alternative for $799. It is similar to the EVoInnovate but boasts a longer cable and a lower operating temperature (-40°C or -40°F).

The Lowest Price

The 16 amps version of the EV200 Series by Bosch is the least expensive level 2 home charging station out there at only $683.

The Most Affordable Smart Charging Station

The JuiceBox Pro has a 32 amps version available for $899 which includes many smart features. Directly from your phone, control the access to the charger, track your charging data, set notifications and reminders and a lot more.

Which Station Charges the Fastest?

First of all, every electric car is limited to a certain power acceptance that cannot be exceeded no matter which charging station you use. This means a 9.6 kW charger won't charge faster a car faster than a 7.2 kW charger unless the car can accept more than 7.2 kW of power.

If your car can accept 9.6 kW of power, then the JuiceBox Pro 40 and the Bosch EV600 Series 40 amps are your best options for faster charging. To give you an idea of the time you save, a Tesla Model S with a 60 kWh battery will be fully charged in 6.3 hours with a 40 amps (9.6 kW) charger, rather than 8.3 hours with a 30 amps (7.2 kW).

Which Charging Stations Have Smart or Connected Features?

Smart or connected charging stations are quite popular with EV drivers because of their capacity to provide charging data and because of their mobile apps that give full control of the charger to the users. Models with smart features include JuiceBox Pro, EVduty Smart Home, ChargePoint Home and Flo x5.

Which Charging Station Has the Best Warranty?

The charging station with the best warranty is the Sun Country Highway Rugged Edition with its five year warranty. It is the only warranty on the market that covers the whole charging stations for that period of time. EVduty stations have the second best warranty: 5 years on the station itself and three years on the cable and connector. Most brands offer a three year on stations.

Which Charging Stations Are Portable?

The EVduty, EVoInnovate and the JuiceBox Pro stations can be installed simply and without any tools, and they are light and compact in size, making it easy to move them for a use in two locations. In fact, once the wall mount is fixed, you only have to unplug the charging station and to slide it up to take it off the wall. They’re also fairly secure, provided you have a padlock on them.

For stations such as the Sun Country Highway, you have to unscrew it from the wall. Don’t forget that your charging station must have a plug if you want to use it at different places.
