Like nearly everything else in the world, the pre-owned market for electric vehicles charging stations is trying to capture a new clientele. Our partner ClipperCreek has just announced the sale of factory-certified, pre-owned HCS and LCS series charging stations. The electric vehicle charging stations are factory tested and certified by ClipperCreek and come with a one-year warranty. Pricing starts at just $300. Pre-owned LCS charging stations are $300, a savings of up to 42% off the price of a new LCS. HCS models are available for $400, a savings of up to 59%.

ClipperCreek says that their factory-certified pre-owned products have been inspected and fully tested to ensure ‘Like New’ functionality. The products may have visible cosmetic imperfections. The products will be packaged in ClipperCreek packaging, and will come with an installation manual and a new connector holster, as new products do.

“We have had an increasing number of customers asking for a pre-owned charging stationoption, and quickly realized re-certifying slightly used HCS and LCS products would offer great value to our customers, and also aligns with our own environmental impact and sustainability goals,” said Jason France, President and Founder of ClipperCreek.

Features of the HCS and LCS stations, including power capabilites, will vary depending on model; all factory-certified, pre-owned ClipperCreek HCS and LCS stations feature the following:

  • One-year warranty
  • Wall mount SAE-J1772TMconnector holsterincluded
  • Integrated cable wrap making storing the cable simple and convenient
  • Rugged, fully sealed NEMA 4 station enclosure for installation indoors or outdoors
  • Support from ClipperCreek’s outstanding customer service team
  • No assembly required
  • Made in America
  • ULand/or ETLlisted, electrical safety certification

With the electric vehicles market on the rise and expected to grow exponentially by 2025, the need for infrastructure is greater than ever. But, in case you still need to have your own charging comfort at home, companies like ClipperCreek are now giving a great entry point into the EV charging station world.

Since we love to test the products before we recommend them, we’ve recently reinstalled our HCS-50P charging station at our new office, so we can fully take advantage of the downtime to charge the 2018 BMW i3 we have in our garage.
