This electric car charging device has been designed with ease of use and installation at its heart. To that end, it is a simpler device than some others we have looked at already. There is no WiFi connectivity, for example.

On the other hand, there are still a lot of useful features and design points in what is a very well-designed charger. For example, it is very powerful with a 32-amp output. That power is delivered via a simple plug and play design. All you do is plug the device into a Nema 14-50 power outlet and away you go. If you don’t have one of these, an electrician can usually install one pretty simply and cheaply.

The device has a huge compatibility range too with ClipperCreek stating that the product should work on just about every EV out there right now. The device is nice and small so it won’t take up much room, and it can be installed inside or outside. The 25-foot length of the power cable is also a very useful length.

Next we have the first Level 1 charger to make the list. There are a number of pros and cons to each device when you compare a Level 1 and Level 2 charger. Naturally, one of the big pros for a Level 1 charger is that it is easy to use and much cheaper than a Level 2 model.

That is also true here with this offering from ZenCar. It comes with a price tag about one third of what you would pay for a premium, Level 2 model. It is also very easy to use; simply plug into a power outlet and away you go. It can deliver between 15 to 16 amps of charging power too.

On the one hand, that is lower than you will get with a Level 2 charger. It does mean that you likely won’t have to make any adjustments to your existing power circuits in your home. It will take longer to charge a car too, especially from a zero battery level. It can be great to just plug in a trickle charge a vehicle though, especially a hybrid.
