In North America, the standard EV charger uses a SAE J1772 plug—also known as a J plug—which attaches to the EV’s port. The standard SAE J1772 plug is compatible with all EVs and PHEVs, with the exception of Tesla vehicles. An adaptor to make the J1772 plug work with Teslas is typically included with the vehicle or available for purchase online.
The EVSE and iEVSE stations can be installed by plugging them into a 240v outlet with NEMA 6-50 plug type, but the iEVSE Plus is hardwired only. A certified electrician should be used when installing an electrical source, like the 240v outlet, and for hardwire installation of charging systems.
If you’ve purchased an iEVSE or iEVSE Plus and would like to use a network service provider and/or connect with your local utility to accept payments or restrict access, contact provider to set up.

Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is an application protocol for communication between the Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station and a central management system, also known as a charging station network. EvoCharge charging stations can be connected to any network you prefer. Unlike other non-OCPP EV charging systems that require you to use their specific network for the unit to work, EvoCharge’s OCPP stations give you the freedom to choose the network and software you want to use, and to switch companies over time if you’d like. Find more information on OCPP.
The manufacturer limited warranty for an EvoCharge Charging Station is 3 years, while the EvoReel warranty is 2 years. The manufacturer warranty covers defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service conditions, including software and firmware.

EvoCharge EVSE, iEVSE and iEVSE Plus units require 208-240VAC plug, Single Phase and a dedicated 40A supply circuit. The supply circuit can be adjusted for use with 30A or 20A supply circuit. EVSE and iEVSE units can be purchased with NEMA-6-50 plug types or can be hardwired. iEVSE Plus is only available with hardwire power connection. We recommend working with a certified electrician for installation. View full installation instructions.
Yes, multiple charging stations can be installed in one location. With the iEVSE and iEVSE Plus charging stations, you can charge up to 20 units in a group and control the output of current to each station, which is called “local load balancing” or “local load management.”
Yes. EvoCharge Charging Stations will automatically stop the transfer of electricity to the vehicle when the car is completely charged. Users don’t have to worry about overwhelming or “overfilling” their EV battery, even when left unattended for long periods.
EvoCharge charging stations are rated for indoor and outdoor use and are NEMA 4 rated for temperature rating of -22℉ to 122℉ (-30℃ to 50℃).
The charging stations can be mounted to a wall or pedestal.
All models come with a cable holster to place the charger in when not in use and the cable can be looped around the holster.
If you’d like better cable management, EvoCharge offers the EvoReel, which mounts to the ceiling or wall and self-retracts when not in use, or the Cable Retractor if you want a more basic tethered cable mount.
The NEMA 6-50 plug is 12 inches in length. This is the maximum length allowed by electrical standards (NEC and UL) for EV Charging Stations.
The EvoCharge base unit uses an indicator light on the front of the unit to communicate the charging status. View the charging status indicator guide for more info.
