60A 14.4kW Premium OpenEVSE L2 with built in current display & RGB LCD display w/Real Time Clock, v3 Main Board

I bought a 2013 Nissan LEAF and love it! I have a heavy electrical background and was inspired when i saw some DIY units for sale here. Work has been very slow and my employer is still weeks behind in paying the other employee and I. :cry: This has caused a severe financial hardship. It's a very stressfull time with 2 little boys. I need to support my family anyway I can and am hoping to build and sell a few EVSE's. Thanks for reading this, Now on to the fun stuff!!

I have a Premium High Power OpenEVSE for sale I built this one to be the best of the best! its running Chris's latest and greatest version 3 main board now with built in current reading right on the LCD! I used his best LCD the RGB model that changes colors for diferent status and Real Time Clock that allows you to set a delay timer great for those of us that can sign up with discounted night time electic rates. I went with a SHEILDED BMW 60A J1772 23 foot cable. It has a Dolstar 70A plug. This unit operates at 240VAC. This is mounted in a very nice PolyCase WC Series Polycarbonate Enclosure with Clear Cover - NEMA Rated for outdoor use. This unit requires a common NEMA 14-50 outlet for 50A/48A cont. use or can be hard wired for 60A max. The cost is $521 plus $25 for UPS ground shipping in the continential USA. the premium board/lcd/2nd ct xformer and heavy J1772 Whip really add alot to the cost as you can see but make the best unit you can own!
