AeroVironment Now Offers Portable, Plug-In EV Charging Station

AeroVironment, the maker of electric vehicle charging stations, has announced the company’s latest charging product allows users to easily plug and un-plug the station for ease of mobility.

“(The) EVSE-RS Plug-In, which easily and securely plugs into a dedicated 240 volt outlet, eliminates the need to hardwire the charging station into the home. The station is SAE-J1772 compliant & recharges all battery electric vehicle (BEV) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) incorporating the SAE standard.”

Besides the ability to simply plug in to a 240v outlet, which is the receptacle that your dryer currently uses, the EVSE-RS Plug-In charger itself slides in and out of a wall-mounted bracket; this easy mounting method allows EV drivers to take their charging station with them when they move and allows them to charge at other frequently visited residences.

“The EVSE-RS Plug-In is easy to install, use & move,” said Wahid Nawabi, senior vice president and general manager of Efficient Energy Systems at AeroVironment. “All EV owners need is a dedicated 240 volt outlet, and they can easily install the wall mount and plug-in charger at their home. If they want to remove it, they simply unplug, slide it out of the bracket and take it with them to another location.”

The EVSE-RS Plug-In comes with both an installation kit and a mounting template. The charger has a 25 foot cord, and weighs in at a not-very-light 19lbs.

The full spec sheet can be found here. The unit is on sale now for $1,099 through, although if you act now, the unit is currently on sale for $1,049. You can find the Amazon listing here.

Will you order it on Amazon and plug it in yourself in your garage ?
