Networked Station Will Go on Sale Summer 2015

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.

So $500 for a 16A EVSE with a 12′ cord? That’s not very competitive… Juicebox being the most likely that has more amps, more cord length, same connectivity. OpenEVSE beats them both but requires some (minimal) DIY skill.

Even at the SAME price I’d be concerned about post-sale support from this company. Based on what I’ve read it’s rather subpar to say the least.

Or you can buy a tried an true Clippercreek LCS-20 for $379 with a 22 ft cable, made in the USA and with great customer service… I was expecting for ChargePoint to raise the bar and force competition.

Sam EV

Agreed. Clippercreek is what I’ll buy when my free Blink finally dies.

Eh, the only thing the CP units offer that my CC LCS-25 doesn’t is wifi connectivity, and being able to log all charging sessions. That’s not worth an additional $200+ bucks though.

Why do I need this over a Clipper Creek unit?

Anon

It’s much prettier in your garage…

Speculawyer

Well I like the Wi-Fi ability.

Electric utilities are changing and well all be subject to TOU rates eventually. Perhaps dynamic ones. So you’ll want to be able to control your EVSE and not have it charge during super peak times.

Most cars offer this ability now. Many allow you to set and monitor the charge from any smart phone or tablet.

I think it’s better to have control over the home charging station via the app vs setting times on the car. I do enjoy reading my chargepoint metrics via the web dashboard.
I think there’s a market for intelligent EVSE’s. However it’s tough to justify a substantial price increase when conventional models are dropping.

Stimpacker

I don’t know about you but I rather remote into one device (my EV) than to remote into 2 devices (EV and EVSE).

How can they claim how many miles of range it provides without specifying the car?

mustang_sallad

It’s approximate, and they say “up to” – close enough and keeps things simple. miles/kWh doesn’t vary THAT much from car to car. Might be more of an issue once these plug-in SUVs start hitting the road.

Tg

Please learn how to read before making a comment.

Sublime

Best case scenario an EVSE acts like a big GFCI outlet. Any gadgetry on top of that just adds to the chance that you won’t get a charge.

mustang_sallad

is it correct to assume there would be no ongoing member fees? That would probably be a deal-breaker for most, but hopefully using wifi avoids most of the costs associated with running their public charging stations.

Loboc

More layers of tech means more things that can go wrong. If it ain’t there, it can’t break.

Erin

Totally agree with you!! Why do I need wifi?? (Most) Cars come with the abilty to set a timer – seems smarter to depend on the car’s software than a charging station.

Erin

And a 12 foot cord? Worthless. The $499 will be for the 16 amp, 12 foot cord? No thank you!

Anon

Do I have to worry about hackers rooting my EVSE, too?

electric-car-insider.com

Yes.

Mister G

And for am additional fee you can buy protection LOL

Bill Howland

I got emailed an offer today, as I’m sure all other CP subscribers did.

I’d like to find out if they can provide remote data logging of the charge, or, if the landlord could do it himself, and thereby provide secure access for his ev tenants without having to have dedicated lines from the tenant’s own meter.

If so, then a few $100 extra is worth it. And it would finally provide a good solution for renters who have been holding back on a PHEV or EV purchase due to difficulty in being able to conveniently plug in.

Lensman

The service they are offering to apartment dwellers, “Multi-Family Home Service”, looks interesting. But the devil is in the details. What will be the price of the monthly subscription, and will the price be so high that it eliminates or deeply cuts into the per-mile cost benefit of PEVs over gasmobiles? The latter is one of the things which killed Better Place.

If ChargePoint is offering installation “for free” but charging a monthly service… that’s the business model of an inkjet printer or a smart phone. That’s not good for the customer*. What’s good for a PEV owner would be actually charging for installation, but having a monthly fee not much above the actual cost of electricity.

*I’m not saying that the business model for smart phones is all that bad. At least with smart phones, you get a lot more functionality than just the ability to make phone calls. But when it comes to paying to charge your car, there’s no good reason to be paying much more than the cost of electricity. You don’t need an EVSE which can play games or send pictures to your friends.

Erin Mellon

Hey Lensman – For ChargePoint’s Multi-Family Service drivers will pay a $199 one-time activation and $39.95 monthly fee.

Bill Howland

This is getting to be as crazy as Cable TV bills. Who would pay $480 a year to use their own charger, and then pay all the other costs associated with it?

I was thinking a ONE-TIME additional charge of $150 or so would be worth it for a landlord, but with no recurring charges other than obviously paying for the elctricity and demand charges accrued.

John

I don’t see this as competitive. I don’t need the wifi at all and I suspect most others won’t. Clipper Creek has simpler and very well made units with longer charge cords for substantially less.

Why did this article get pushed down the page so quickly? It was published this morning, but is now showing up amongst articles from yesterday.
