The original "brick" EVSE is manufactured by Panasonic kitchen appliances division, who is well-known for quality products. It is by far the most rugged and reliable portable EVSE ever made, and once upgraded it becomes auto-adjusting and can operate on almost any outlet type using simple adapters. These same units are also used by other quality makes, such as Nissan and Honda, and we now have thousands of upgrades out there with extremely high satisfaction and reliability ratings. It will charge your i-MiEV at a Level 2 rate of 13A (3.12kW) when used on a 240v outlet. It's still fully portable, or you can easily mount it on a wall with the included mounting holes. You also now get easily programmable amperage settings, so you can "dial it down" if you are on a limited power outlet, or you really want a "trickle" charge, say for example; in airport long-term parking.
In addition to the more than triple speed increase of 240 volt charging, you also gain over a 50% increase when used on a standard 120 volt household outlet*, the unit then charges at a Level 1 rate of 12 amps (1.44kW) instead of the original 8A (960w). The advanced programming feature allows the user to set the charging speed, if desired, to as low as 6 amps in 1 amp increments.
*optional 120v Adapter is required for charging on standard wall outlets!
The process: You send in your existing unit, we upgrade it and send it back. We typically turn them around same-day, so you can get your unit back as soon as possible. Unfortunately we do not offer advanced replacement for Mitsubishi customers, but if you are in a situation where you cannot be without a way to charge, please contact us
