This forum doesn't seem to active, but lets see...

Just purchased e-Transit and trying to decide between charging with a NEMA-1450 receptacle vs purchasing the $700 Ford-connected Charge station.
Does the e-Transit come with the everything I need to plug into an existing NEMA-1450 receptacle?

Does anyone have comparison of charge miles/hr for e-Transit? NEMA-1450 vs Ford-connected charge station?
Other significant value of buying the $700 Ford-connected hard-wired charge station?

Thanks much, Dino

If you haven't done anything yet, I'd go straight for this hardwired option: https://shop.tesla.com/product/j1772-wall-connector?sku=1509549-02-B

Ive yet to purchase anything yet. I've just run the 6/3 romex feeder to the location (I'm an electrician). Can you tell me more on why the Tesla charger is a better option? ...besides price. Thank you for chiming in!
That will get you the full 48 amps or 11.5kW max level 2 charge rate, Don't have to invest in a GOOD 1450 receptacle. There seems to be more data out there about these NEMA receptacles were never really being built to run at max capacity for those length of times.

1. The Tesla charger has a proven track record.
2. 11.5 kW is faster charging than 9.6kW
3. 11.5 kW could be more cost effective if you are on an hourly plan
4. Hardwire is safer assuming the house wiring is sufficient.
5. An equivalent 48 amp charger is going to be double the price.
6. You could also get the Tesla port version for much cheaper if you have another EV and just get an adapter to charge the van.
