So a lot of people have an older home with a small service (60A-120A) which typically means that you have to piggy-back onto an existing circuit, like your dryer or oven. So you buy something like a Dryer Buddy (Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO
) or something similar to take care of the issue of tripping your breaker. But now your car doesn't charge if your dryer is on.
Question: Would anyone be interested in a device that regulates the car charging level so that it's always charging some amount, even if your appliance is on?
So if your dryer current draw is like 15A on a 30A circuit, your car can still charge the remaining 8-10A or so. You could hook up a current clamp to the dryer and talk to EVSE to regulate the power draw.
