Build

Jeep electric car charger has a rugged, fully-sealed enclosure—built to National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Level 4 standards.

Design

Mopar Branded (Manufacturer ClipperCreek) Jeep Electric car charger has dimension of 19.7 x 7.9 x 5.3 inches, which weighs around ‎13.5 pounds. It has mixed design of rectangle and oval shape.

Display

It comes with 4 small LCD indicators. at the center of the box. The indicator explains about the status of Power, Charging, Power Fault & Charging Fault.

The PHEV charging unit charges up to 5.5 times faster than the cordset that came with your vehicle. The HSC-40 puts out 32 Amps (7.7kW) of power, perfect for all plug-in vehicles. Miles of range per hour of charging: 14.50

Cable length

An integrated cable wrap keeps the 25-foot charging cable neatly stowed and the included wall mount connector holster and padlock keep it all secure. Compact size offers flexible installation and usability. 

NEMA Plug

It is the standard J-1772 plug for most EV’s in the US. For the absolute ease of use, we recommend having an electrician install a NEMA 14-50 outlet in your garage.

This outlet looks like a dryer plug, and you can plug a Level 2 charger directly into it. This makes it easier to take with you if you move, or if you want to plug something else in when you aren’t charging — like an air compressor for tools — you can.

Full charge time – Jeep electric car charger

The Level I 120-volt charger can be fully recharged in approximately 14 hours. You can shorten the time and charge your vehicle in as little as 2 hours by using an available Level II 240-volt charger. However, the estimated charging times are based on a completely discharged high-voltage battery. Charging times will vary based on various factors including the age, condition, state of charge, available current being provided to the charger from its energy source and temperature of the high-voltage battery.

How to charge?

A PHEV SUV combines a gas engine and an electric motor powered by a battery that can be recharged by plugging it in.
