Which product should I buy? What’s a good price to pay? How can I determine which brand will last the longest? These are a few questions that swim around every modern consumer’s mind. The race to build the best product is no doubt good for consumers, but it can be hard to trudge through a long list of sometimes indiscernible options especially when it comes to relatively new technology like Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE), colloquially known as EV charging stations. As an EV charging network that supports any type of EV charging station, EVmatch can help you make a decision about which station to buy based on our customers’ top choices.
Charging Station Graph

Every station in the chart above is listed on the EVmatch network by a private charging station owner. Dubbed “residential hosts,” these owners share their private stations with other EV drivers. Residential hosts create a listing with essential details including location, availability, and access fee. Drivers then request to reserve a charging session and pay ahead of time to cover the cost of electricity and any access fee set by the host. 

Here’s a breakdown of the top four Level 2 (220/240V) EV charging stations as represented by ownership on our network.

1. Tesla

Tesla Charger

The Tesla Wall Connector allows Tesla owners to upgrade their home charging experience from Level 1 (110/120V) to Level 2 (220/240V) for a faster charge. Tesla stations are only compatible with Teslas (don’t worry all you Bolt and Leaf owners, Enel X and ChargePoint have you covered!)

Features (source: Tesla)

  • Price: $500
  • Warranty: 48 months 
  • Installation: Can be plugged into a 220/240V outlet for easy installation. As many as four Wall Connectors can share available power, perfect for owners with more than one Tesla or commercial installations.
  • Power: Compatible with 208-250 volt power supplies. Customizable power levels allows for installation on a range of circuit breakers.
  • Connectivity: None available
  • Cable length: 8.5 feet or 24 feet

2. Enel X

JuiceBox Charger

EVmatch’s Recommendations

  1. Enel X JuiceBox Pro – We recommend the JuiceBox Pro because it’s affordable, durable, connected, and a customer favorite. Plus, JuiceBox Pro owners can manage their station remotely through the EVmatch app, which makes renting your home or apartment station extremely easy. Last but not least, the JuiceBox is compatible with Tesla vehicles via an adapter.
  2. ChargePoint Home 32A –  ChargePoint’s home charger receives our runner-up mention because it’s the second-most used connected station on our network. We are fans of Level 2 stations with WiFi or cellular connectivity because they provide added access and power control features, which enable beneficial energy grid services. 

For those people out there looking for a new charging station, EVmatch is offering a $250 rebate when you purchase and list a JuiceBox Pro on the network. Fill out the form here to learn more or email
