NEMA 10-50 EV Chargers
We do not recommend buying this type of level 2 EV charger from third party websites.
This plug type was used commonly until the early 1990s but is no longer recommended and is against electrical code. The plug does not have any kind of grounding wire which poses an electrical safety risk. We recommend calling a licensed electrician to have this 240V plug changed. The most common 240V EV charger that includes a ground is our NEMA 14-50 Level 2 EV charger. We recommend TotalEV™ which provides the fastest charging capability. A link to our level 2 NEMA 14-50 EV charger and level 2 NEMA 14-30 EV charger section is here.
