  1. Waterproof, "Waterproof", and IP ratings

    Charging and Batteries
    I am about to send a Duosida adjustable (8 to 32 Amps) EVSE back to the vendor (EVDoctor) for service. When I was shopping for a 240V EVSE I looked for the word "waterproof", because I wanted to use it outside. The Duosida had the word "waterproof" in the listing on Amazon with a graphic of an...
  2. Mustart brand -- any experience? Any reason not to get the portable version?

    Charging and Batteries
    There are a few posts that mention Mustart on this forum, but I couldn't really find a lot so here's another "what should I buy" thread from a new Bolt owner (going to pick it up this afternoon). I don't care about anything fancy. No WiFi needed, or scheduling, or anything like that (the Bolt...

    Chargers / Components

  6. 240v—looking for a 14-50 adapter

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Would this work as a simple way to use the 14-50 outlet in my garage to connect to the Bolt EVSE and get a mild boost in charging? I will be mostly local commuting, so thought this would be an affordable way to charge without going for a more expensive second EVSE Thanks Gavin Oops, no links...
