The Turbocrd makes Level 2 charging accessible for anyone wanting to install a 20Amp/240V outlet. Now there are a few complaints in the blogosphere about the availability of such a plug in public/private locations, many would prefer the 30Amp plug commonly used on a dryer outlet. However if such an outlet is available for use at a house then the outlet can be easily converted from 30Amps to 20Amps by simply replacing the outlet and 2-pole 30Amp circuit breaker with a NEMA 6-20R Receptacle and @-Pole 20Amp breaker. This can be accomplished with out an electrician by a novice Do-It-Yourselfer from Home Depot for about $30 or less (ok ~$29.95 J ).
The TurboCord’s petite size allows it to fit in many outlets and doesn’t dangle down like some other models which come with the car. This will prevent marks, scratches and Charging Abuse from showing up on your dry wall. The Body is shaped to be used in both indoor locations and outdoor outlet covers while still plugged in.
The Turbocord will definitely appeal to those that also want workplace charging without installing a charger, simply install a 240V 20Amp outlet. AeroVironments’ Turbocord will fit the needs of anyone driving these cars should they wish to charge three times faster.
The Turbocord vs. The competition’s EV Charging Stations:
Well it’s portable, light weight, and pretty reasonably priced. The Clipper Creek unit only charges at 240V and not dual voltages so you’d still have to carry around that other cordset for emergency situations.
FIVE STAR RATING. Best In Class. Sell your level 1 on Ebay and buy one of these Daul (120V/240V) units. If you have an EV/ PHEV with a 3.3kW charger, then buy one of these. If you got an EV with greater than 3.3kW then look for one of the Wall mount models so you can charge faster a 30Amps. The Turbocord can only output 16 Amps which would not charge as fast as your vehicle is capable of.
