When we bought a Fusion Energi, I installed a Leviton EVB22-3PT 16 amp 3.8 kW unit not thinking that we would buy an all electric car just two months later.
I'd like to put the 3.8 kW unit up on Amazon and upgrade to a 7.2 kW unit in order to bring charging time on the Focus down. Overnight charging doesn't matter whether it is 4 hours or 6. The ability to add 21 miles per hour to the battery between trips rather than 9 or 10 per hour would be nice.
I need to run about 50 feet of heavier wire and put in a 40 Amp breaker to do the upgrade. I wonder if there is something I could upgrade or adjust in the guts of the Leviton unit that would allow it to send more juice to the car without having to replace the whole unit. Anybody know the insides of these thing?
