Question Home Smart Charging options

I know the car can only handle 16A and most threads say Clipper Creek LCS-20 charger...not the LCS-20P?

My question is about smart charging. What is the best value for smart charging with smartphone integration? Is there value here for the Karma?Would it be paying extra for?

I recently posted about the Chargepoint Home unit. Mine is hard wired but the same unit can be purchased with a dryer plug. But even the hard wired unit is very easy to disconnect and move to a new location if needed. Hope this helps.

No, mine is plugged in unlike my old hardwired Chargepoint charger.
