Emporia’s new NACS EV charger is “comparable to a Tesla charger at a more affordable price” – Charged EVs


Competition is good, but standardization is good too. As Tesla’s North American Charging Standard gradually becomes a true standard, drivers of Teslas and other EVs have more and more options for charging their NACS-capable EVs.

The latest alternative to a Tesla-branded charger comes from EV charger manufacturer Emporia. The company’s new NACS Level 2 EV Charger “combines power, design, and functionality comparable to a Tesla charger at a more affordable price.”

The Emporia NACS Level 2 Charger is compatible with the Tesla charge port door, so users can conveniently open the door via a button on the connector. The charger comes with a wall-mounted holster for cable storage.

Emporia chargers are designed to be durable, and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations. Users can manage charging using Emporia’s mobile app, which enables them to customize charging settings, monitor progress, and manage schedules remotely.

The Emporia NACS Level 2 Charger seamlessly integrates with the Emporia energy management ecosystem, which enables users to automate energy usage, charge during optimal off-peak hours, and prioritize the use of excess solar power for charging.

Emporia’s recently-launched installation marketplace offers free estimates based on the client’s location, partnerships with vetted installers and special pricing.

“This is a very exciting time in the EV charging industry,” said Emporia CEO Shawn McLaughlin. “As one of the first manufacturers to market with an NACS charger since Tesla published the specification, Emporia is at the forefront of providing cutting-edge solutions. Most car manufacturers have announced they will adopt this standard within the next 2-3 years.”
