Yes, all models of the Grizzl-E EV Charger work with all Electric Vehicles and Plug-in Hybrid models. Tesla vehicles need the use of a J1772 to Tesla adapter.
This varies according to the maximum current output. When the maximum current output is set to 40 Amp it will add approximately 30 miles per hour to your EV or PHEV battery until its fully charged. At 32 Amp it will add approximately 25 miles per hour, 24 Amp will add approximately 18 miles per hour, and 16 Amp adds about 10 miles
Yes, the locking pin can be removed to easily lift and transport the charger. Accessories such as outdoor locks, soft carrying cases, additional wall cradles, and plug holders are available on our website store.
Yes, the Grizzl-E Chargers are UL and cUL certified.
What is the UL file number?
The UL file number is E510712.
If you need to set up Grizzl-E for a 20, 30, or 40 Amp breaker, remove the front cover of the charger and adjust the DIP switches inside. For more information on how to do this please refer to the manual. The Grizzl-E EVSE is designed so that opening the box does not void the charger warranty and there are no loose parts or wires inside the unit.
Yes! We now provide an option to choose the maximum output current for your circuit breaker and pre-set it at our factory.
Grizzl-E Classic, Avalanche, Extreme edition all work without any internet connectivity or applications. Grizzl-E Smart is Wi-Fi connected and can work with any OCPP 1.6j application.
What is the difference between the different Grizzl-E Models?
The only difference between the Grizzl-E Classic, Avalanche, and Extreme edition is the look of the enclosure. The Grizzl-E Smart has a Wi-Fi extension module that allows it to connect to a network and run smart charging features.
Absolutely NOT. Grizzl-E is inexpensive because United Chargers is committed to providing high-quality economical charging solutions to advance the adoption of electric vehicles in North America. Grizzl-E chargers are assembled in Canada with the highest quality components and first-class workmanship, with all required certifications and regulations. Every charger leaving our assembly line undergoes multiple quality control tests to ensure that they are fault proof. For more information on how the Grizzl-E is made check out this video on our YouTube channel.
We at United Chargers like to provide you with a choice of output cable to improve your charging experience in different climate conditions as well as in different installation locations. The regular cable is used by majority of EV charging stations and is designed for indoor use or in mild to hot climate conditions. The premium cable is designed to be used outdoor in cold climates (below -10C or 10F) as it is more flexible in cold weather and better protected against harsh conditions.
There are only a few EV chargers on the market that utilize metal enclosures, because the manufacturing cost of metal enclosures is significantly higher than most plastic enclosures. JuiceBox 2.0 is now only made by EnelX in a plastic enclosure, as EnelX redesigned the JuiceBox 1.0 charger and is no longer using the generic and widely available metal rectangular enclosure. Because Grizzl-E is made to withstand the harsh and extreme climate conditions of the Canadian North, we produce it with a metal enclosure. This best meets the requirements for NEMA 4 air- and water-tight rating of the charger, and although the metal enclosure is more costly, it helps make the Grizzl-E a truly robust charger. Most electrical NEMA-4-rated metal boxes on the market utilize same construction principles, such as lid with 4 screws in a rectangular box.
Due to certification requirements for connectivity of cables to metal enclosures, Grizzl-E enclosure might look somewhat similar to the metal enclosure used on the first version of JuiceBox, but this is where any similarities end. Grizzl-E is an inexpensive non-smart EVSE with DIP switches inside the box to control the maximum output current. JuiceBox is a smart and significantly more expensive connected EVSE with Wi-Fi and has the ability to adjust maximum currents through the app. Grizzl-E is NOT associated or related in any way with the respected and trademarked products of EnelX’s previous-generation JuiceBox. All trademarks mentioned belong to their respected owners.
Are you developing a mobile app for the Grizzl-E Smart to see usage, dollars saved over gas, and charging current?
Yes we are developing our own proprietary United Chargers portal (acharger.ca) that will be available for both desktop and mobile applications. The portal is online now with limited functionality will continue further development throughout 2021. ChargeLab and AmpUp are also also developing home usage apps, as this is now becoming a trend. So I think there will be dozens of apps by the end of 2021 which Grizzl-E Smart can use.
What OCPP providers can I use that are free for home EV Charging?
Right now there are two verified network providers that have solutions for home and commercial EV Charging, ChargeLab and AmpUp. We are planning to test and integrate Grizzl-E Smart with an additional 2-3 providers every month. Currently we are in integration testing with EVConnect and SWTCH, they will be added in few weeks. All Commercial providers now working on Home apps as well.
Is the United Chargers OCPP web portal more business oriented? Will you have a more home user friendly version?
The United Chargers Portal will update its UI to be more user-friendly very soon, we just had a meeting on its development today.
