ChargePoint is likely best known to electric vehicle drivers as the company behind the network of public charging stations. The company also offers home charging options and now the ChargePoint Home EVSE is being offered directly from Amazon. The 240-volt charger starts at $499 and then based on options (a 12-, 18-, and 25-foot cord; 16 or 32 amps) tops out at $749. The ChargePoint Home also offers a smartphone connection and all of the scheduling options EV drivers expect from a modern charging station.

The indoor/outdoor Home will be available on Amazon later this year. ChargePoint also offers a home charging unit for people who live in apartments. Bosch has been selling a Level 2 home connector for $450 since 2013, but that one doesn't talk to your smartphone.

Campbell, Calif. – ChargePoint Home, a smart and beautiful home electric vehicle (EV) charger will be available to order on Amazon later this summer. The price of the networked station ranges from $499 to $749.

"ChargePoint Home delivers the same seamless charging experience ChargePoint users have come to count on at work and around town – and now it's conveniently available in a driver's own garage," said ChargePoint CEO Pasquale Romano. "A Wi-Fi enabled, networked, EV charging station gives drivers freedom by allowing them to remotely start, schedule and set reminders for charging, all through their mobile app."

Introduced at CES in January, ChargePoint Home is the most advanced home EV charger on the market offering speed, convenience and intelligence all in an ultra-sleek and durable design.

ChargePoint Home's price varies based on power level, installation type and cord length. The station is available as a 32 amp station that can deliver a maximum of 25 miles of Range Per Hour (RPH), or a 16 amp station that can deliver a maximum of 12 RPH. Cords are available in 12, 18, and 25 feet. The station can be installed either indoors or outdoors, is available in a plug or hardwired version, and has a universal J1772™ connector that is compatible with all EVs on the road today.

ChargePoint Home is integrated with a driver's ChargePoint account so they can see residential, public and workplace charging via their mobile app. Drivers can also view their energy usage and how many miles they've added during a charging session depending on their car. Plus ChargePoint Home works with Nest so drivers can save on energy costs.

Earlier this year, ChargePoint announced the Multi-Family Home Service which gives apartment and condominium residents convenient charging at home.
