8 amps. Maybe already generally known around here, but I got a JuiceNet ClipperCreek installed and ran some tests, hoping I could dial it down to a few amps for a 'trickle charge' for conditioning and such. Nope, under 8A it pretends it's not even hooked up.

That's almost 2kW which is a pretty good load in terms of household equipment. OTOH that's probably the minimum it wants for conditioning, below that being less than useful. Even the 12V accessory port can do 1600W.

8 x 120 volts is 960 watts or .960 kw pretty close to trickle charge.
240V - this is a ClipperCreek, not the included EVSE. But as you say a 120V version would come closer. I like to keep the OEM version in the car as backup of my backup. I have a [email protected] socket installed with my EVSE, maybe I'll get a cheap 120 unit for that purpose.
