40A 9.6kW Level 2 Econo OpenEVSE Waterproof Outdoor Charging Station For Sale
Many people have asked me for a cheaper EVSE. I have a 240v 40A 9.6kW OpenEVSE for sale with a Custom 40A J1772 22 foot cable using a 63A plug. 40A 4ft. Power input cable with 14-xx plug. (unused neutral blade removed to allow plugging into a 30A, 50A or 60A outlet) 50A high current contactor. This unit operates at Level 2 on 240VAC. 120v/240v available as well. This is mounted in a light gray outdoor rated enclosure. This unit requires a 50A 240V circuit with a NEMA 14-50 outlet for full 40A potential. However you can plug it into a 30A 14-30 dryer outlet if you don’t need the full 40A for example.

It will charge any J1772 compliant car at up to 40A (9.6kW)
The EVSE advertises the available current to the EV which intern draws what it is designed for.

OpenEVSE v.2.5Plus board running newest firmware
All nuts/bolts/washers are STAINLESS STEEL
The base plate inside is 1/4" thick high quality plexigalss, no thin stuff here.
22ft. Custom 40A J1772 “Whip” with 63A high current plug and PET braided sleeving.
The contactor is a quality 50A 240v unit
The input cable is 40A 4ft. 8ga. with the popular NEMA 14-50 plug. This is the one all the Tesla guys have installed as well as the standard at RV parks!
You can even use the PlugShare app and set the filters to include NEMA 14-50 and see all of them in the country, there are a surprising number of them.
Ready and charging status LED’s
Heat shrink tubing used throughout.
All parts are new.

Here is a link to the owner’s manual:

If you would like the unit customized with a twist lock plug for example or something other than the NEMA 14-50 plug I can do that for the difference in parts. In the case of a L6-30 it would allow you to use many adapters. I also build custom adapters, see my other thread.

The price is $395.00 plus $25 for UPS ground shipping in the continental USA. I offer a 1 Year Parts and Labor Warranty on all my EVSE’s

Also available in 26A 6.24kW version for $379.78
(J1772 cable changed to 26A 15ft., all else the same)

If you would like to see it in action on your EV we can arrange that thru private message at my home. Local pickup in Las Vegas near Smith's grocery on East Flamingo. Payment is by PayPal if shipped or cash for local pickup.

I worked hard on a nice PDF featuring some of the EVSE's I build and accessories. Check it out here for current pricing: EVSE flyer.pdf?dl=0

I get a lot of inquires about custom builds. YES I definitely take orders for anything you would like to see in your EVSE. Example I can build this one here for the same price and make the Whip longer for well under $2/ft up to 50ft. Private message me or if you have a general question you think the rest of the community can benefit from post it here.
