"EVSE" means "Electric Vehicle Service Equipment". It's the "power cord" that plugs into a wall outlet on one end and into you car's charging port on the other end. Many people call this the "charging cable".

Technically speaking the EVSE isn't a "charger" because it doesn't convert the AC current coming out of the wall socket into the DC current required by the battery - that's done by electronics inside the car, and it's those electronics which are properly called the "charger".
