Surge Protection of your Electric Vehicle and Charger

There has been a case of a voltage surge in New Zealand that has damaged a Nissan LEAF and its JuiceCord charger. 

JuicePoint recommends that surge protection be installed in your switchboard if your location is prone to voltage surges or if you live in a rural location. 

Please discuss with your electrician about Surge Arresters, for example a Schneider Surge Arrester part number A9L20100

This is a more substantial arrester similar to what you find in expensive power boards for protecting TV’s and computers.
