  • 33225


Dryer Buddy™ Quadplex #2 20A is based upon the original Dryer Buddy but is even more versatile! This unit takes the place of several other Dryer Buddy numbers, it plugs into a NEMA 6-20 outlet (20amp 240volt). The Dryer Buddy™ Quadplex 20A has FOUR outlets, two NEMA 10-30 and two NEMA 6-20, you may plug in up to four devices total to share a 20amp outlet and view your total amperage draw on the color meter screen! This versatile splitter allows you to plug in several EVSE's, Bitcoin miners, grow lights at the same time while monitoring the amperage/wattage draw allowing you to safely load the 20amp wall outlet for maximum use.

Be sure to set your Electric Vehicle or EV Charging Station (EVSE) to 16amps or less when using this Dryer Buddy (max draw for 20amp Dryer Circuit).

We offer full customization, if you need a different plug or outlets or specific outlets in specific positions we can built that for you! Email me with your custom request

Dryer Buddy allows you to share your 20amp 240volt wall outlet with your EVSE(s). Allows four items to share the 20A circuit. An ammeter is included so you may see how much current your items are drawing and maximize the full circuit. Great for apartment dwellers, temp housing or an easy hookup at a friend’s/relative’s house. See my demo video here: coming soon

Dryer Buddy vs. Dryer Buddy PLUS vs. Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO

The original Dryer Buddy model is a splitter (both outlets always live), You can add one of two Upgrade Paks for manual or automatic operation, an Upgrade Pak essential allows you to pay the difference in cost between the original Dryer Buddy and the Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO or Dryer Buddy PLUS AUTO.

What is a Dryer Buddy Plus? The Dryer Buddy Plus is a manual 2-way switcher based on the original Dryer Buddy. It allows you to share your Dryer outlet with your EVSE or any appliance like a Bitcoin miner. Only one outlet is live at a time, by default it’s the dryer outlet (on the left) with a flip of the switch, power is toggled to the EVSE outlet only. Designed so other members of the house don’t accidentally start the Dryer while you’re charging your EV;

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 it is drawing little to no amps so the EVSE outlet is switched on allowing your EV to charge. If the Dryer is turned on 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, See my demo video here:  Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO with kWh meter Demo

For the PLUS and Plus Auto models the meter is wired to read system Voltage and only meter the Current flowing through the EVSE outlet, unlike the original Dryer Buddy where the meter reads all Current flowing through the unit. In this configuration the Kilowatt Hours (kWh's) will only accumulate for Energy flowing through the EVSE outlet (on the right of the face) this value is stored between power outages and may be reset when you like. This allows you to see only the Energy your Electric vehicle has consumed.

Note: Some high efficiency Dryers such as the Bosch Series 800 Max slowly ramp the speed of the motor and don't draw significant current (over 3.5 amps) while running which will cause the Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO to switch the EVSE outlet off or it may switch several times in a short period. For these Dryers we recommend either the Dryer Buddy PLUS, that unit offers manual switching between outlets or adding the Delay controller Upgrade Pak to the Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO, The delay kit solves this issue; Delay Controller Upgrade Pak

Need some extra length between your Dryer outlet and Dryer Buddy™ or between the Dryer Buddy™ and your Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVSE)? I custom build extension cords to the length your need and with the plug and outlet of your choice, see my extensions in the Adapter’s section for several models; Extension Cords
