Leviton's Evr-Green 160 Level 2 home charging station, which is slated to hit the U.S. market in mid-April, has received Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) approval from the Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The Evr-Green 160 cranks out up to 16 amps at 240 volts, corresponding to 3.8kW of juice, and will be offered in two forms: a patent-pending plug-in version designed for do-it-yourself installation and a more conventional hardwired setup.
Leviton's 160 charger is part of the company's Evr-Green line of EVSEs. Aside from the 160, Leviton offers a portable charging unit, commercial charging stations, pre-wire kits to make installation less costly and networked software applications connected by Coulomb's ChargePoint system. All Evr-Green chargers are assembled in the U.S., are SAE J1772-compliant and backed by a three-year warranty. Leviton has not revealed pricing for its 160 home charging station.
