2021 Escape PHEV Titanium Premium
It just depends on the voltage no?So the car cannot draw more than 15A ??
That's almost impossible, usually a 110V (LSVE1) can draw 12A, i doubt that a LSVE2 can only draw 4 more amps...
I ain't no electrician, but why install a 40A breaker for LSVE2 if the car cannot draw more than 15A ?It just depends on the voltage no?
For Level 2 it's 3300W / 240V = 13.75 amps or 3300W / 220V = 15 amps.
On level 1 it maxes out to 12A x 120V = 1440W or 12A x 110V = 1320W.
BUT that is not the power that actually gets into the vehicle because on efficiency it is not 1 on 1. Level 1 wastes more electricity. It is hardly ever more than 80% efficient, while Level 2 can reach 95% efficiency.
Probably to be ready for when you exchange the PHEV for a fully electric BEV (battery electric vehicle).I ain't no electrician, but why install a 40A breaker for LSVE2 if the car cannot draw more than 15A ?
This is exactly what I did. Really like the Chargepoint and its App. My cost was almost the same using a "good" electrical company here in DFW. I have a 2021 EscapeTitanium PHEV and a 2021 Mach-E ER AWD. The charger is mounted in-between the 2 on the wall, front of garage. I extend the cord and keep it draped for the Escape and move it accordingly for the occasional Mach-E charge.For the 2022 Escape PHEV I ordered (and will take delivery sometime in February) - I just installed a chargepoint flex charger (settable from 16A - 60 A) purchased from Amazon for $699. Electrician labor was $400 to put my 60 amp breaker ($30 @ Lowes) into my circuit breaker box, run my 50' foot 6/3 metal shielded wire ($300 @ Home depot) and hard wire both ends, and mount the charger to the wall. + tax-all told less than $1,500 before fed tax credit and state & local incentives. Since all vehicles limit the maximum amperage to what it can accept - why not just set the charger to 48Amps and if I even need to charge a different car with higher amperage acceptance rates - I'm covered.
