Question recommendation for a level 2 charger to use at work?

After installing a charge point at home (which is good so far) I discovered the charging station in my work parking garage doesn't work and everyone brings their own charger to plug into the 240 outlet. So now I need to buy another charger to keep in the car. Any recommendations? (other than asking them to fix the charging station!)

What's the outlet? Nema 14-50? Or something else? What's the max amps on the circuit?

But honestly I would ask facilities to fix or replace the existing charging station.

How far are you from work to home. The reality if your charging at home you probably will not need to charge at work also, save the money

You will probably want the lightest 32a charger you can find that has the right male plug.

HOWEVER, without a picture of the plug or the NEMA designation, you will never know the best way to spend your money.

Sidebar - Most US commercial buildings do not actually operate at 240vac, they operate at 208vac. So it takes 15% longer to get the same charge. I say this so you won't wonder why "the charger is not very efficient".
