Tip number 1

To European users, for safety reasons I recommend the much sturdier industrial CEE plug, which allows you to charge at commercial areas (malls and hotels) and campsites. With the Schuko adapter you can also charge by using a simple domestic socket.

 

Tip number 2

European buyers on AliExpress can choose two options:

  1. Shipping via DHL (faster but with import duty and taxes)
  2. Shipping via UPS (slower but without import duty and taxes)

 

I recommend the UPS method if you want to save money. The product is sent from China to a European warehouse where import duty and taxes are taken care of, only then the product is redirected to your address and you don’t have to pay anything extra. Meaning you get a brand new EVSE for around 175 euros.

The downside is that the UPS method takes 2-3 weeks, while DHL only takes 1 week to deliver your product.

Summing up, if you are in a hurry choose DHL, otherwise choose UPS.
