Went with JuiceBox Pro 40 because:

1. Liked the idea of future-proofing in case JLR somehow upped the charge rate on the on-board charger (wishful thinking, I know ), or offered an upgraded charger, or I purchased another EV with a higher charge rate down the road.
2. Liked the idea of plug-in option in case the EVSE broke down and I had to replace it (simply unplug and replace versus rewiring the hardwired connection). My installation is outdoor and JuiceBox offers outdoor rated plug-in option while ChargePoint does not.
3. I got the JuiceBox 40 with a 24' cable for $549 which was cheaper than the comparable ChargePoint (Hardwired, 32A, 25' cable) at the time of purchase.
4. The JuiceBox matched my fence color better
