The JuiceBox Pro (WiFi) will derate down to 6/12/16/24/32 amps x 240vac in the cellphone app.
It's a good value, but not exactly portable. It saves your charging information and even graphs it.
I have a Bosch, Clipper Creek, Chevy Volt, and a Tesla Model 3 EVSE with TeslaTap. The JuiceBoxes are the largest and heaviest with a clumsy cord, but they are industrial quality units. Not even all commercial sites are as robust as a JuiceBox. Few are more robust.
For a portable (carried in the car) I'd get the Tesla Model 3 with TeslaTap since it is 32a, small and light, with swap-able pigtails for different outlets, which is how you control charge rate.
Like above the Jaguar Retail USA EVSE is a terrible joke. It's not even 12a which is what a 120v outlet supports at minimum. The prototype cars came with a good EVSE with L1/L2 pigtails. It is a Jaguar P/N, and I wish they would have made them an option.
But for home or business use? The JuiceBox Pro. There is nothing wrong with the Bosch or Clipper Creek or Tesla, it's just the JuiceBox Pro is a better unit and a good value.
People say the Bosch is junk. Mine has lasted outdoors for 6 years being used every single day without one problem. It has passed more kWh than all our other EVSEs combined. I agree it's sort of Mickey Mouse, but it certainly works. Would I buy another? No, there are better choices. But it shows you can't always trust the internet.
