The Charger SE was discontinued for 2018, leaving the SXT as the entry-level model. Positioned above the SXT was a new AWD Charger GT powered by the 3.6-liter V6. Return response was quick and I was able to get some of my questions about the car answered.

First there is a USB charger, which slots into the 12V socket and can power two devices at once. Our only criticism here – and one shared with a lot of these chargers – is how the ports contain a bright blue light, which can be distracting, especially when driving at night. Next you’ll want to decide if the charger will be left in place all the time, or removed after each journey, and whether it will complement the aesthetics of your car. Thankfully, many of these products come in a variety of colours to help out with that last point. But fear not, as the humble 12V socket – also known as the cigarette lighter socket – can come to the rescue. Their prohibitive cost and high power levels make them unsuitable for home installation, Tal said.

The Winter Storage Mode allows you to keep your golf carts plugged in months at a time and you won’t have to turn it off yourself. If your golf cart is plugged in, it will keep charging until it’s full. Once your batteries are fully charged, the charger will shut itself off. And, if you keep it plugged in, the charger will kick start again once it your charger reaches a certain level of voltage. It will also save you the trouble of having to ask someone to keep watch of your cart while you’re away for the winter.

The EVSE wall unit also should be positioned to minimize the hazard of tripping over the power cord. In general, this means keeping the cord out of walking areas and positioning the wall unit as close as possible to the vehicle’s electrical inlet. Another option is to install an overhead support that keeps the cord off the floor. Charging with Level 1 EVSE will not require any special equipment besides an outlet, but does require a dedicated branch circuit.
The charger also supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge for 2.0 and 3.0 devices, so don’t expect to have to plug in your phone for very long. Then to pull it all together there’s industry-grade materials and modern circuitry to prevent things like overheating and overcharging. Designed to be independent of port or charging cable standards, Quick Charge is compatible with just about every plug and cable out there. It’s backward-compatible, too, so Quick Charge outlets can function as standard chargers when non-Quick Charge phones are plugged in.

It can even repair a damaged battery and work with both CANBUS electrical systems and micro-hybrid start-stop vehicles. It is also hugely impressive when it comes to innovation and safety.
