This is pre-order vaporware with scant details at this time. Also, they kind of missed describing how to get 48 Amps out of it (or into it). It must be hard-wired, not a 14-50.

Edit: It looks like there are several versions coming. The rendering probably isn't bi-directional because it has a J1772 instead of CCS.

The most interesting feature to me is the Home-->Vehicle and Vehicle-->Home 2-way feature. If, if, if, it ever appears, and it is designed properly, and if Lightning and this unit play nicely together, this could be the $400 (pre-order) answer to Intelligent Backup Power. I expect the competition to include Vehicle to Home or Vehicle to Grid on an assortment of EVSEs soon. This is the first I have seen besides Ford's.

This charger is now available and on sale for $299. I signed up for their test program and received an email today.


I won’t have my truck within the return period, but I think I’m going to order one anyway. I need three level 2 charging stations, one for home and one for each of two offices I frequent. I’m not going to start out buying three of these, but one to start makes sense.

That's a great price for a 48A EVSE. Unfortunately, any mention of the bi-directional V2H/G models seems to have disappeared. The product page is still at the same link I posted above.
