Home EV Charger question?


Active Member
May 8, 2019
For various reasons it might make sense for me to have a charger mounted inside my garage but run the cable out of the garage (via a small gap that exists) and keep it coiled up outside.
This only makes sense if I can take the cable run it to the car and start the charging without having to open up the garage and do anything with the actual charger like press a start button.
So my question is to all you guys with your various Zappi, Rolec, EO chargers etc is would that work? or do you have to physically interact with the charger in any way to start it charging after you plug it in to the car?

any insights appreciated.
Andersen charger is plug in and go. Alternatively you can schedule a charge start time via the car or Tesla app, or a start/stop time via the Andersen app. In all scenarios there is no need to press anything on the charger unit itself.

Which I think is pretty standard for most chargers so I don’t think you’ll have a problem.
