I think if you decide to purchase the HCS-D50 or any ClipperCreek EVSE it will give you very long service. The ClipperCreek EVSE are built to last but perhaps not the most attractive EVSE with none of the bells and whistles. (In comparison, the Tesla Wall Connector has a glass front plate. This looks great on the cover of Architectural Digest etc. but whomever designed the Tesla Wall Connector has never owned a house with a typical garage where there are ladders, tools etc. that can accidentally impact the EVSE housing. (Back in the real world, ClipperCreek has a video on their web site that demonstrates ClipperCreek employees swinging a wooden bat at the HCS EVSE housing (the bat splintered.)Thanks for this information, I was not aware this J1772 adapter was needed with the hcs-d50, that is another $200 added to overall cost.
The cost to run the conduit is not as much of a problem as the location of where the conduit has to be ran in the garage. Right now with the way my Sub panel is setup I can connect the conduit whip from the clippercreek directly into the panel or even a junction box right below it without much hassle.
I just don't have enough experience with the clippercreek but so far your feedback and another user is very good information. I don't want to buy something and have to replace it a few years later b/c it broke. I do like the fact it is a dumb charger in a sense as there is less which can break and go wrong.
I was hoping to find an alternative but there really isn't much out there for residential in terms of dual charging.
