Get a 24 Amp Level 2 Charging Station for your garage for just $499 and say goodbye to “range anxiety”. The new station, from ClipperCreek, can deliver around 20 miles of range per hour of charging.
The new model LCS-30, offers 5.8kW of power, for up to 4 times faster charging than the standard 120V cordsets delivered with most vehicles.
It is available for both hardwired and plug in installations; the hardwired 240 Volt charging station is $499; the four types of LCS-30P plug-in versions are $515.
Designed to serve the residential, workplace, fleet, and public amenity charging markets, the LCS-30 has best in class product features, including a 3-year warranty, a fully sealed, rugged NEMA 4 enclosure, 25 feet of charge cable, and a separate, low profile wall mount connector holster.
“ClipperCreek’s mission is to promote the electric vehicle market. We do so by building the most durable, powerful and reliable stations on the market and we do so at various power levels to suit customer’s existing infrastructure and budget. ClipperCreek’s constant innovation has resulted in yet another product value improvement, the LCS-30,” said company founder and president Jason France.
It’s an ideal solution for electric vehicle owners who want faster charging, but don’t necessarily want to upgrade their electrical service panel, because this new charging station provides the maximum charging power available through a standard 30 Amp, 240 Volt circuit.
With 24 Amps available to the vehicle, the LCS-30 can deliver approximately 20 miles of range per hour of charge for vehicles capable of accepting this level of power for charging. This allows more fleets, public lots and individuals to use the existing infrastructure. That makes installation easier and more affordable, including for shopping destinations installing free chargers in parking areas for their stores.
Many people already have a NEMA 14-30 receptacle in their garage, so that will be a very popular configuration and installation costs will be minimal or even no cost at all, depending on the existing power configuration. The unit is available for wall mounting or on a pedestal.
Features of the LCS-30 include:
- 25 feet of charging cable for installation flexibility and superior vehicle reach
- Integrated cable wrap makes storing the cable simple and convenient
- Low profile wall mount connector holster allows storage of the vehicle connector out of the way and where it’s most convenient
- Fully sealed NEMA 4 rated enclosure for product durability
- Next generation SAE-J1772 connector with optional padlock feature
- No assembly or mounting kit required
- Safety listed by ETL
