Hi everyone,

I am new on this forum and plan to get a GV60 performance.
Just a quick question, what kind of home LV2 charger you guys recommended?
What's difference between Nema 6-20 & Nema 10-30 plug?
I saw the photo only the shape of the plug is different, but will that affect the compatibility?

Much appreciate for all your recommendation.

Ron

Hi Ron, Welcome to the forum! The GV60 is amazing. I installed a Clipper Creek: Clipper Creek HCS-60R, Ruggedized 48 Amp, Level 2, EVSE, 240V, with 25 ft cable
This one gives me the highest charge rate that the onboard charger can take 11kw/h. I am very happy with my choice. I love have my 'gas station' at my house!

Hi Ron, The 6-20 plug can only handle a maximum of 20 amps at 240v, whereas the 10/30 is rated up to 30 Amps. Which you choose will limit your highest possible charging speed- though I would consider both of them only a moderate rate of level 2 charging. For a 'fast' rate of level 2 charging like John has achieved, you might have to consider a hard-wired solution- though I suppose it's possible that a charger could use a fat Nema 14-50 plug for a faster supply (but still not as fast as John's, which uses a 60 amp circuit, I believe)

Thank you Rocco! I learn something new from your reply!

Yes - mine is 60amp and hardwired. I figured to just get the highest rate I could and the longest cord I could! I am prepared - ha! But again, just about any will work, this was just my solution.
