Can I use a Non-Compliant EVSE?

So what happens if I charge my EV with a device that is non-compliant and there is a fire or someone is electrocuted?

After reading these Safety FAQs you are now required to make that decision. Check your insurance policy (home/business and motor vehicle) and if in doubt ring your insurer. We advise you to only use compliant EVSEs.

Also take the time to regularly inspect the charger, cables and plugs for damage. If you are unsure it is safe, please seek professional advice.
