Here are the highlights:
- Power up from 30 to 32 amps
- Price remains $590
- Max charging: 7.7 kW
CLIPPERCREEK LAUNCHES 32 AMP STATION: More Power, Same $590 Price
ClipperCreek announces an upgrade in power for the popular HCS-40 and CS-40 series EV charging stations; from 30 Amps to 32 Amps continuous as a standard offering.
The HCS-40 is the first major brand, low cost, Level 2 electric vehicle charging station to break through to the 32 Amp level without increasing the selling price. With 25 feet of charging cable and a “no strings attached” 3-year manufacturer’s warranty, the HCS-40’s durability and usability is on par with what customers have come expect from ClipperCreek products.
ClipperCreek’s focus on continuous product value improvement for electric vehicle customers is unprecedented in the market. Charging at 32 Amps and 240Volts, the 7.7KW HCS-40 now offers increased power for cost conscious customers. All of ClipperCreek’s charging station products are safety certified by independent testing laboratories and compatible with all plug in vehicles available today.
“We are constantly developing new products to bring the next level of customer value to the market,” said Jason France, President and Founder of ClipperCreek. “After an in depth analysis, the ClipperCreek team determined the standards would allow an additional 480 Watts of power for charging without compromising quality, safety, or durability. The company’s HCS-40 and CS-40 models are now offered at the 32 Amp charging level with no increase in price.”
The HCS-40 is well-built, easy to install, and simple to use which translates into installation cost savings when compared to other products on the market. After the junction box is run from the main service, installing the HCS-40 is a snap. Using the provided 2 wall screws and 3 power wires, any licensed electrician can install an HCS-40 in no time at all. There is no need to disassemble the unit or to try to understand complicated installation instructions. In fact, no assembly required. An optional connector holster is available for just $19.
