Some wall-mounted EV chargers, like the EnelX JuiceBox series, offer both hardwire and plug-in options. A hardwired charger runs the electrical circuit directly to the device, while a plug-in device requires a 240 volt outlet to be installed. The charger is then wall-mounted and plugged into the outlet.
While a plug-in charger offers more flexibility since it can be removed, we recommend hardwire installation where possible since it is a safer, better looking, and more weatherproof option. Hardwire installations are also more reliable as they are less likely to “trip” and require reset.
