I like mine and thought I would start a thread on their stuff after commenting on another.

got my Qmerit install done with a 50A breaker,(said the 6ga wire was good for 60A but like to go with the safer side) and using the Emporia EVSE set at a 50A breaker(6ga single wire) to run at 40A charge rate. Took the guy close to a full day for the install (I was his helper) but happy for GM covering this. My 22 EV dash and the EVSE app both showed +- 9kw charge rate. Started my charge from about 50% and nothing was close to hot, 90deg day and after the sun got off the wires it was all barely warm. The installer commented on how thick the cables on
the Emporia are. So far, quite pleased with my choice of EVSE! Plant Property Building Window Fixture Plant Flowerpot Rectangle Grass Wood
BTW, I payed a total of $480 for the Emporia on Amazon for the UL listed model.
I like that the app shows the stats of each charge "event".
The 1st charge I had my rate set at .12 per kwh and had a "bill of $4.50 for a half charge" that I was ok with but after checking our last bill I see that our rate has went from something like 12-13 cents per kwh to 15.6 now(based on current bill), What else ain't gone up!

I will add that I am interested in the other offerings from them to monitor the house, may look in to some of the circuit monitors, just to have a better Idea what's going on.

I've got their Vue 2 monitoring 16 circuits. Excellent company and top rate support. Circuit monitoring has come in extremely handy. I've mentioned elsewhere that I actually tracked down an in-wall clothes iron that was left on for days because of it.

Recently cleaned out my AC condenser
Made me go clean my coils too, thanks for the reminder! Thinking about the Vue2 also, would be cool but we'll see. I still have the pricey tags for my Bolt to pay and hoping to get the windows tinted (not used to all the IR heat without it).

I just ordered my Emporia from Amazon yesterday (my Blink melted)... after readying all the reviews I could find and doing some research.. it was the best option going!! I am going to make sure all codes and connections are "overkill" on this install. I will update as I have this completed and tested. I would love to look into the monitoring stuff also. Wish me luck!!
Go Bolt Nation!
Happy with mine so far. Like the app info but wish I could do it on my PC, not so fond of EVERYTHING being a **** phone app nowadays but I guess the kids don't know any better, I also miss the GM EV access online, loved that when I had my Volt.
