Lectron's New Level 2 Charger for J1772 and PHEVs

As electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) grow in popularity and use, their widespread adoption relies on strong and capable charging infrastructure. Lectron’s latest NEMA 14-50 Level 2 Portable EV Charger delivers convenience, portability, and value to EV drivers. 

With high-performing Level 2 charging, you can get significantly faster charging over the standard, Level 1 charger that comes with the car.

Our Level 2 charger delivers 240 volts, 9.6 kW, and 40 Amps of charge. This charging capability ranks among the highest available at a residential property, and this means you could get back on the road in just a few hours. 

The charger is fitted with J1772-standard connectors, which various car manufacturers have widely adopted. Among the car brands that use the J1772 standard, these include Mercedes, BMW, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Porsche, Nissan, and Chevy. 

Using the J1772 standard ensures that no matter what vehicle you own, you can count on Lectron to offer chargers or adapters that will suit your needs. In fact, even if you own and drive a Tesla, which uses its own proprietary connector designs, all you need is one of our compact and ruggedly made Tesla-to-J1772 Adapters.

Your safety is paramount

Operator safety is a critical factor when it comes to our product designs. Especially when it comes to EV charging equipment, safety standards and certifications are crucial.

This Level 2 Portable EV Charger is ETL, FCC, and UL certified. This means the device and components have undergone independent testing and verification for safety and reliability. Moreover, the charger has an IP65 weather-resistant rating and incorporates built-in protections against overvoltage, overcurrent, and short circuits.

You can rest assured that your charger and its peripheral products are safe and dependable for charging your car, whether it’s an EV or hybrid PHEV.

This charger is equipped with a NEMA 14-50 plug, which lets you directly connect to a 240-volt outlet, without needing to hire an electrician to hardwire the device into your home or property’s circuit board. 

Thanks to this easy setup, you can simply plug into the socket to get much stronger power (it’s the same plug you use to run your clothes dryer or other heavy home appliances) for faster charging, while saving you on added costs of hiring an electrician. 

Going on a trip? Don’t leave home without it!

Portability is another critical feature of our Level 2 Portable EV Charger. Like our other portable chargers, this one comes in a convenient carrying case that easily stores in your car. When you need to charge, you have a rugged 16-foot cable that easily plugs into your J1772 car. 

Added to the rapid charging capacity and great portability, another key feature is that the charger is easy to use, intuitive, and uncomplicated in its design. The charger features bright LED indicator lights that show real-time information on charging status and device performance. This gives you seamless monitoring of how quickly and well your car is charging, which ultimately offers peace of mind, each time you park to charge your car.
