I have a 40a installed and it works just fine, 9kWh vs 11kWh with a 48a. Basically, every hour I get 2 kWh less charge than with a 48a. IMO not a huge deal especially when you're charging over night or for 5+ hours in a session.

Take a look at Wallbox as well, they make a great product, and it's much more compact than everything else out there. I had a Bosch, Chargepoint, and Juicebox before and I prefer my Wallbox.

Awesome, Thank you!
After seeing this in the owners manual I am determined to get a Level 2: "Battery performance and durability can deteriorate if the DC charger is used constantly. Use of DC charge should be minimized in order to help prolong high voltage battery life. It is best to have a mix of AC and DC charging of your battery over time."

My buddy just installed this for his Ioniq 5 that matches for the GV60

I have been researching chargers for a couple of weeks. At first I was planning to purchase either Juicebox or Chargepoint, but then changed my mind. All programs for rebates in my state are filled to capacity, so I see no reason to limit my search to only qualifying models. I am now seriously considering Wallbox. I like the size of it and the app appears to be simple with useful metrics. At this point I am trying to decide between the 40 or 48. I prefer 40 so it can be plugged in...in case there are issues and I need to get a replacement. But...the 48 can charge faster. How does the difference you stated in KW translate to Miles per hour of charge? Why do you prefer Wallbox to Juicebox and Chargepoint?

Thank you!

The difference between a 40a (9kWh) and 48a EVSE (11kWh) is 2kWh per hour difference. So, I guess between 2-10 miles per hour? Depends on your average efficiency. If you get 3 mi/kWh then it would be 6. If you are charging overnight, it won't really matter, 8 hours would fill the battery from pretty much dead with either EVSE.

One thing I didn't like about the Chargepoint was the docking mechanism. Otherwise they all worked fine, no issues. I prefer the Wallbox due to the size and how it looks. I rarely use the app at all, but it is definitely way better than the Chargepoint app.

I have the wallbox (48 amp, though I probably would have been fine with 40). However, in retrospect, I think I would have got the Grizzle. Cheaper, but works just as well. has less features, which turns out I didn't need anyway.
