The popular Dryer Buddy Plus is no available as a Fully Automatic unit called the Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO. it is available in all the Dryer Buddy numbers #1, #2, #3, #4 ect..
The Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO is a fully automatic 2-way switcher based on the original Dryer Buddy Plus. It allows you to share your dryer outlet with your EVSE without having to flip any switches. Basic operation is simple, the Dryer outlet is always live and the EVSE outlet is only live when there is enough amperage available to charge your EV. When the Dryer is off or only tumbling laundry on Air Dry it is drawing only a few amps so the EVSE outlet is switched on allowing your EV to charge. If the Dryer goes to heat mode at any time then the EVSE outlet is switched off, when the Dryer is done power is restored to the EVSE outlet and if your EV needs charging it will resume charging. Designed so other members of the house don't have to understand anything technical to use the Dryer when they need to do a load of laundry. Great for apartment dwellers, temp housing or an easy hookup at a friend’s/relatives house. Housed in a solid 6x6x4 PVC gray box.
I used the Blue kWh meter that's an option in my custom build EVSE's. 100A Volts/Amps/Watts/kWh Meter. Keeps track of how much energy your using so you know how much $ in electricity you’ve used by simple multiplying by your utilities rate (0.13/kWh here in Vegas)
