It also has overheat protection. It comes with a backlit display that measures one and an eighth inch by one half inch in the upper left hand corner. We find the amp limit mode, which you can change to limit the amount of amps being drawn by the circuit in the top center. We find the time spent charging in the upper right hand corner. We find the charging status indicator in the center. We see the amount of kilowatt hours that have been drawn from the home circuit in the lower left hand corner.

The plug connects to a nema 1450 outlet which can be found in the garages of most newer homes. If your home doesnt have a nema 1450 outlet, it can be installed by an electrician in about an hour or less plugging. In is a snap.
