No. Will never meet code or get any type of UL safety listing. Besides that it will limit you to 12 or 15 amps charging... too slow. Will not work on GFCI outlet. Will not even work in your garage if the outlets are on the same branch or if the branch circuits are are on the same bus.
Get the right stuff and wire it properly. The included L1 will get you maybe 20 to 30 miles per day until you get this resolved.
Time2Roll, thank you for the quick reply. Is your response based on factual certainty or a wise assumption? If a wise assumption, i would agree with you. However, this is directly from their website concerning safety, and it is on a page dedicated to using their device for EV’s:
Safety and Certification. The Quick 220® Power Supplies meet the fire and safety standards of UL (Underwriters Laboratories), CSA (Canadian Standards Association), and OSHA (United States Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration.)
A. UL and CSA publish product safety and testing standards for use in the United States and Canada. Quick 220® Power Supplies conform to UL Standard for Safety Power Units (UL1012) and to CSA Standard for General Use Power Supplies (CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 107.1.)
B. Qualification of testing laboratories in the US is under OSHA, which recognizes about 15 labs to test products. Intertek Testing Services, an OSHA recognized lab, tested and certified the Quick 220® Power Supplies to both UL and CSA standards. Additionally, Quick 220® Systems is inspected quarterly by Intertek to assure continuing compliance with the standards. Quick 220® Power Supplies are listed In the Directory of Intertek Certified Products and bear the Intertek "Listed" Certification Mark for both the US and Canada.
C. UL, CSA, OSHA, and the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories concern themselves with the safety of products that are brought into the home or business. The NEC (National Electrical Code) addresses the permanent wiring of buildings and other facilities. In general, if it is in the walls or a permanent part of the facility, NEC defines how to do it safely. If you can plug it in, then UL, CSA, OSHA and the testing laboratories address product safety.
2. Quick 220® Functions. Some of the contributors to the discussion were uncertain about the operation of the Quick 220® Power Supply. Here is a summary.
A. A double pole circuit breaker is mounted in the side of the case, recessed to prevent accidental on/off switching. It is either a 15 or 20 ampere breaker, depending on the model Quick 220® Power Supply chosen. The breaker protects the vehicle, the Quick 220® Power Supply, and the building wiring. Incidentally, the branch circuit breakers in the building perform the same functions at a different level. When extension cords are used, the user should use electrical cords of appropriate gauge for the ampere load. This is detailed in the instructions.
B. The Quick 220® Power Supply has internal safety interlocks that function as follows:
a. No power is available at the 240 volt outlet until BOTH 120 volt power cords are plugged into 120 volt outlets that are electrically out of phase. Should one of the 120 volt power cords lose power or become disconnected, ALL power is immediately cut off from 240 volt outlet. This protects the user and the vehicle from the effects of the vehicle receiving the wrong voltage by mistake or circumstance.
b. Until a 120 volt power cord is connected to a 120 volt electrical source, it is electrically isolated from the electrical circuits of the Quick 220® Power Supply. This protects the user from accidental shock through the exposed plug contacts.
c. Should one of the 120 volt supply outlets be wired incorrectly and have the hot and neutral lines reversed, the Quick 220® Power Supply prevents any electricity from being connected to the 240 volt outlet. This is to prevent damage to the vehicle and any other consequences of low voltage.
C. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI or GFI) . A Quick 220® Power Supply will trip GFCI’s, which are typically found in wet areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms. One should select electrical circuits in areas of the building that do not have GFCI’s. An outlet tester is supplied with every Quick 220® Power Supply that will quickly identify GFCI controlled outlets.
D. Find the out-of-phase 120 volt circuit. Connect the first power cord of the Quick 220® Power Supply to a convenient 120 volt outlet. Then, test different outlets with the second power cord until the amber light on the front panel illuminates; plug in the second power cord. Begin using the 208/240 volt outlet of the Quick 220® Power Supply. About half the outlets in a building will be out-of-phase.
