Best Home Ev Charger is very nice product. Our electrician found the installation straight forward and decided on direct wiring to our circuit box with a 50 amp breaker to avoid having to use the NEMA 14-50 plug with a GFC breaker (an extra $150).

We also asked him to install a NEMA 6-20R outlet attached to our home generator circuit box so that we could charge with the optional BMW 20 amp charger cord during power outages. The hardwiring dry wall cut was sealed with foam spray covered with rubber spray. Not pretty, but completely sealed and water proof. Our electrician charged $290 for the job.

The charger was $699, so about $1000 to get great L2 charging with redundancy via our generator board and optional outlet and cord.

We are getting 7.3 kw of power to the battery with a 40 amp circuit selection in the app. That is is the max our BMW i3s will accommodate. Full charges in about 5 hours from battery empty, but usually we are charging about 2-3 hours with normal use.
