Is this the BEST Portable EV Charger in Australia? | In-depth Review Fronius Wattpilot Go 1.4-22 kW

Hi, welcome to Electric Car Australia the Aussie EV & Sustainable living YouTube Channel. My names Greg and today I’m so excited to be reviewing a portable EV charger I have been waiting for around 6 months to check out, the Fronius Wattpilot Go J22 Australian model. which Fronius kindly provided for review.

I’m so excited because this EV charger, strictly speaking an EVSE, is unique in the Australian EV charger market as it’s a portable, solar smart, single and three phase combined charger with build in RFID capability. This means you have the flexibility of a fully featured home charger that is portable so you can take it on those regional road trips AND it suits every EV on the market, so could it be the best EV charger available in Australia today. Well this is the first of a series of video’s to put this charger through it’s paces, I hope you enjoy it.
