Great write up thanks. I am generally a very tech oriented/savvy guy but or L2 chargers I tend to go the other way. The most trouble I have had has been with "smart" feature laden chargers. I find that I have no need for the information and control (I can usually do almost everything with the car settings) so I tend to go with the dumbest chargers (like mustart mentioned above) myself. Never have had any issues with those cheap/dumb ones, yet all the "smart" ones (including the ridiculously priced Porsche branded smart Taycan one) are the ones that crash, need to be power cycled, etc etc.

So unless you must have the smarts I would go with a non connected, no smarts, just give me the juice one. I use ones that go up to 9 KW (mainly because I don't want to hard wire them). No issues and not a single failure so far (I own something like 4 of the dumb ones).
