Great affordable Level 2 Charger, but doesn't do 120V
GREAT inexpensive EVSE, not 120V compatible
You can also see my full review at 300 MPG dot Org.
This is a great portable Level 2 EVSE.
It's 16A, so it's full power/full speed for vehicles with 3,300 watt or so chargers, such as the Chevy Volt and other plug-in hybrids, older Nissan Leafs, and Mitsubishi iMiEVs. (If you have a Bolt, or Leaf with 6.6K charger, you would likely want a 30A charger.)
This EVSE uses the NEMA 14-30 240V power plug. You could also build an adapter to other 240V connections. Since this EVSE does NOT use the neutral, you actually COULD cut off the neutral blade to make this compatible with both 14-30 AND 14-50 connections. That would be perfectly safe and electrically sound (although not for people who are afraid of voiding warranties...)
This EVSE will NOT run on 120V wall power.
The case is made by Delphi and the main circuit board is made by Clipper Creek.
This EVSE is NEARLY identical to the Gen 2 Chevy Volt EVSE, except with the 30A plug and the fact that it will NOT run on 120V

An amazing EVSE for the price!
I've been extremely pleased with this EVSE. I've been using it to charge my 2017 Ford Focus Electric. So far it has reliably charged my vehicle every night. While it doesn't have the features of some of the other EVSEs, it allows the Focus to completely recharge during it's average 12 hour stay in the garage each night. Typical electric vehicles will charge at about 10 miles / hour with this EVSE. While it doesn't include scheduling options, most EVs, including the focus, have that support on-board to schedule charging for lower energy rates.
Hanging it on the wall was straight forward using mounting screws available at any hardware store. I added a bracket to allow the cord to be coiled up. The 20 Feet cord is adequate, but I would recommend that a future version offer a 25 feet cord as option.
I'd also suggest that AmazinE offer a dual-voltage version to allow one cord to be used on 240V or 20Amp 120V circuits.
All in all the product is excellent, it's price competitive with the china-made EVSEs without any safety certification, but this one comes complete with UL listing, giving me peace of mind that my house isn't going to burn down overnight.

Went from 7 hours to 2 on a plug in Hybrid
Amazing E charger. 240 volt. Well made. Easy install. Time saver. Made by Clipper Creek. Definitely, better product than the China made chargers. This is assembled in USA with parts sourced in USA (as told to me when I called Clipper Creek). No problem with plugging into car, smooth plug in and unplug. Also ordered harness and holster, nice set up. Only improvement would be on/off switch on the unit as the pilot lamp is always on. Instructions don't say weather you can leave it plugged in all the time. Called Clipper Creek and they said it was ok to leave plugged in. Other complaint, would be a better location on the charger for the screw mounts. as it is a bit difficult to securely mount on wall. Plus it does the job for one half the price of a fixed wall mount. In other words you don't need to spend $500 or more to charge your EV.

Just as advertised! It works great!
Great product that works, charging time for my Ford CMax down to 2.2 hours from 6.5. Highly recommended.

Inexpensive - Reliable - Charge Rate: 11mph
Bought this unit for $214 about three weeks ago and it has worked great every single day. This EVSE is especially good for my Chevy Volt or any other car with sismilar charging capabilities. The unit is capable of delivering the max charge my on board charger will accept. AKA buying a larger, higher powered, fancier charger that is more expensive wouldn't charge my car any faster. Conclusion: If this gets your car to the max acceptable charge rate that your car will accept it is unbeatable, in my opinion, for the price. If your car can Handel a faster charge and you want to charge faster than about 11 miles an hour you might want something else. But you will pay more for that. In many cases your cost will be double.

Great unit so far with one suggestion to the manufacturer.
Received today and so far, so good. My BMW i3 was at 91% and it charged to 100% in about 45 minutes. Since charging gets slower as you approach 100%, that is very good. My only complaint (so far) is that the manufacturer needs to put mounting ears or offer a mounting bracket for permanent installation on the wall instead of the hooks that are molded into the back of the case. I do realize this was meant to be portable, but I also feel that many folks like me will be permanently mounting the unit to the wall.

Awesome evse (charger)
The Amazing E is awesome. It's made in the USA and is safety certified. It requires a dedicated 240 volt circuit. If you already have a 240volt 20amp nema 6-20 outlet don't fret, go to a home supply store and make an adapter. You can't go wrong with this Amazing evse!

there really is not a pressing need for super fast charging---the generator will always be there for those ...
Driving a Gen I Chevy Volt, there really is not a pressing need for super fast charging---the generator will always be there for those longer drives that happen after the battery is depleted. However, most PHEV drivers will admit that they hate using gas and always look to the battery for miles. I am like everyone else, I love running on the battery, regardless of the generator being very convenient. Of course, the Volt has a slow charging speed even at 240 Volts, but that is still close to 3X's the speed of the 110 volt household charger. I decided to get this unit after seeing commercials for it on YouTube and then reviews on BTA-MALL. This Christmas, under the tree, was an BTA-MALL box with the Amazing-E EVSE inside. Once I had my brother come over and install an outdoor 240 Volt outlet, I plugged this little baby in and VOILA! it absolutely charges much faster than 110 Volts. It has already made a difference in that I drive the Volt more, not afraid to use the battery and then plug right back in for another 10-12 miles. Those little after work trips that used to be beyond the Volt's 32 mile range are now doable. Come home from work empty, plug in to the Amazing-E and in an hour or two(after dinner?)I have more than enough to do local trips and such. I love it, it makes using the Volt even more fun. For anyone who has a PHEV such as the Volt or one of the Fords, this is great. If you have a Nissan LEAF with a 3.3 KWH on board charger, plug this in at night and you should be completely full by morning. Even a Chevy Bolt EV, if you don't want to spend $500 or so on a 40 amp unit, this will work fine. Highly recommended.

It just works, plug it in and forget it.
It just works! Bought for my Gen 1 Volt, charges it at the highest rate Volt can charge. Only works on 220v, which was fine with me, volt came with a 120v charger. Mounted it on outside brick wall, under 220v outlet I had installed by electrician. No issues with it being outside in the rain and elements. I wish the cord was a little longer, but it reaches where I park OK. The lights on it are simple, one tells you its got power, and the other tells you if there are any issues. I only had the issue light go on once. Turned off the breaker and turned it back on, and issue light never lit up again. Other reviews have said "The case is made by Delphi and the main circuit board is made by Clipper Creek" You can't beat Clipper Creek Quality. The Cord going to charging port, does have Delphi printed on it, Nothing to set on it, you just plug it in and plug your car in, and charging begins. Simple and reliable.

Well-built, gets the job done, great price, safety certified...
Unit does what it is supposed to do, simple, well-built, safety certified...Charges at 16 amps, 208 or 240 volts...NEMA 14-30 plug, it does the job well...Love the shopping bags too...
