EV600 Series Powerful Home EV Charging Station by Bosch (model EL-51866)
Why Purchase the EV600 Series EV Charger?
The EV600 Series by Bosch is a level 2 home charging station which allows you to charge your electric car or plug-in hybrid faster than with level 1 charging. Equipped with a universal SAE J1772 connector which can be plugged into and charge every electric vehicle in North America, the EV600 Series is available as a 40-amp station for a 9.6 kW charging or as a 30-amp station for 7.2 kW charging. The station can be installed either indoors or outdoors, and is portable for use in multiple locations. This station is made by Bosch.
Available Options for the EV600 Series Station
Cable length and Power
The station is available in two versions, which vary in terms of power and cable length. The more powerful version is unnecessary for most electric vehicles. See if your electric car can benefit from the more powerful station with this table.
- 30 amperes (for 7.2 kW charging) and an 18-foot cable. Suits every EV, especially if they are always parked near the station.
- 40 amperes (for 9.6 kW charging) and a 25-foot cable. For EVs which can benefit from 40-amp charging, charges up to 7 times faster than level 1 charging. The cable is long enough to charge your electric car whether it is front or back facing.
Incentives and Rebates available for the EV600 Series Charger
The government of Quebec offers a $600 rebate when you purchase your EV600 Series charging station. Make sure that the order for the station is under the name of the owner of the vehicule. Some cities and boroughs also offer further incentives. To find out if yours does, check out or directory of Canadian rebates and incentives for level 2 home EVSEs.
