Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to install a home charging connector at our cottage. It will be outdoors under an overhang. There is no possibility to bring the wall connector closer to the car or to change the orientation of how the car will be parked.

With backing in due to the way the driveway is setup I can just reach with a 25' cable, the Tesla Connector Gen 3 18' won't reach, tried it.

With this said would you look to get an EVSE Tesla Extension Cord with a Tesla Wall Connector Gen 3 18' cord which would give me lots of flexibility OR would you select a Enel-x JuiceBox 48 with 25' cord. The Enel-x gets poor reviews for cable flexibility when it's cold, temperatures can reach -20C during winter, though we are not using the cottage much during winter.

Would love to hear what you'd pick, and most importantly why....

Thank you all for your responses!

Since you mentioned the flexibility of the charging cord in winter temperatures being a concern I suggest you look at the Grizzl-E Level 2 EV Charger, (16/24/32/40 Amp, NEMA 6-50/14-50 Plug 24 feet Premium Cable, Indoor/Outdoor Car Charging Station (Premium Cable - Avalanche Edition). https://www.amazon.com/Grizzl-Charger-Premium-Regular-Charging/dp/B08Q22651D/

As far as I am aware the Grizzl-E Level 2 EVSE is the only EVSE that has an option for a premium charging cable (24 ft.) that remains flexible in sub zero temperatures. Made in Canada.

Here is a review:
Review: The Grizzl-E, A Tough 40-Amp EV Home Charger Built For The Outdoors

The Grizzl-E EVSE comes with either a 6-50 or a 14-50 power plug but can be hard wired by an electrician.
