The EVduty-40 EVC30 Smart Home 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. It can be connected to your smartphone via an iOS or Android mobile app. Its smart features allow you to remotely control access to it, follow your charging statistics and more. Equipped with a universal SAE J1772 connector which can be plugged into and charge every electric vehicle in North America, the station delivers 30 amps of charging power. The station can be installed either indoors or outdoors, and is designed to withstand the harsh Canadian weather, with its extra flexible 25-foot cable. The station is portable for use in multiple locations since it comes with a plug and is very light. This station is made in Canada by Elmec.
Available Options for the EVduty Smart Home Station
The EVduty-40 Smart Home is also available as a non-smart EVSE, the EVduty-40. The Smart Home version is a smart charger and offers the following features:
Wi-Fi connected: enjoy all the benefits of a Wi-Fi connected station with the mobile app.
Control access to the charger through your smartphone: keep full control wherever you are.
Follow charging statistics in real time: stay up to date with your EV or PHEV’s charge.

Adjust the maximum output current of the charging station (8A, 12A, 16A, 20A, 24A, 28A, 30A).
Set power-sharing between multiple stations.
The station has three options for plug type:
NEMA 6-50P (welder outlet)
NEMA 14-50P (stove outlet)
Hardwired (connected directly to your electrical panel for a permanent installation)
The non-hardwired versions allow you to move the station, which can be useful if you move or if you have a second place of residence.
You can buy the station on its own or buy it as part of a bundle for a single house or two houses.
The one house bundle includes the station, an SAE J1772 connector holster with cable wrapping and a NEMA 6-50P or 14-50P outdoor outlet (depending on the station you choose).
The two house bundle includes everything from the one house bundle, as well as an extra holster, an extra outdoor outlet, and an extra wall mount.

I ordered a second one and the first one still works 100% with 0 problems for 4 years.
Delivery (speed, etc.): Excellent service, I went to the St-Charles branch and was very well received. We quickly explained the promotions and gave the required details.
Recharge experience to date: Still learning. The EVduty application is not bad, but lacks a few features.
Overall rating out of 5 for the service and product: 5
For now, my opinion on the station is excellent. With respect to delivery, nothing to report, because I went straight to the store on Boulevard. St-Charles in Kirkland. At this place, I was very well received. All my questions were answered and I was able to leave with the station of my choice. As for the charging experience to date: The charging station charges the car batteries in less than 5 hours. This makes a big difference with the 120w current. However, on two occasions, when I plugged in the car, the red light code (4.3) came on telling me that charging was not occurring. I was able to restart the recharge simply by unplugging and reconnecting the station to the 240W socket (as if it reset the station.) Eventually, I expect to make pass by the shop to understand what happened. But since this has not happened again, I give the overall rating of 5 out of 5.
