Hi everyone, does anyone has any idea, whether there is a good charger available in the market for fast charging.
If you are actually talking about a DC fast charger, there are many. None are cheap enough for consumers to consider owning. Even the 25 kW units that some car dealerships have are $8K.

If you are talking about the smart cord/EVSE connectors to get the full capacity out of your onboard charger, there are many to choose from, and lots of threads about them on this forum.

If you want something a little faster than the 120V that came with the car, but cheaper than going overboard for a 40Amp.


You can buy one in the middle, but it all depends on what outlet you have available the one I bought had a 15Amp plug I used it until I bought a 40Amp.

If you have a dryer within 25 feet of the car you can unplug the dryer while the car is charging, it will save you from running wire or hiring an electrician.


First see what power you have available near where you are going to charge, then work out how long it will take to charge with the smaller EVSE before you make a buy.


Check ebay out there are some used ESEV's there you might find the one you need at a decent price, that will work with the outlet you have.
