How it Works

What’s the most amount of power a Smart Splitter can sustain?

40A continuous, 50A peak with a 50A breaker.

My Smart Splitter has power cycled 10 times in the last half hour, what happened?

Congrats! Your Smart Splitter just went through an Over-the-Air update. Sometime it can take a few power cycles before success.

My dryer is currently running, but I still see light a green light on my Tesla charger.

If both lights are green, there is no need to worry. This means your dryer is most likely drawing so little power that both combined devices do not exceed the switching threshold—this is not an issue. Our built in safety mechanism will ensure your total power does not exceed what your outlet can handle.

I want to charge one car after the other, not simultaneously. Can the splitter accommodate this? If so how do I set it up?

This is exactly how our Smart Splitters work! Our Smart Splitters are designed with a primary and secondary outlet, giving the primary outlet priority. This means your primary car will charge first then when it is finished charging your second car will automatically start. This is automatic, so you will not need to set anything up or press any buttons.

Will the Smart Splitter automatically turn off the EVSE side when the dryer side is in use? Is there a physical switch?

Yep, you bet! All Smart Splitters are equipped with automatic power switching and will automatically prioritize the primary output. No physical switching required.

How does the Smart Splitter know which outlet is the car charger and which is the appliance?

On the sides of the Smart Splitter you will see a label for Primary (PRI) and Secondary (SEC) next to the LED's. Normally you will plug your Appliance (dryer, water heater, heat pump etc.) into the left side (Primary) of the Smart Splitter and your EV charger would be plugged into the right side (Secondary). When your car is charging and you run your dryer, the Smart Splitter will automatically allow your dryer to take priority while pausing your car charger. When the dryer cycle is done your car will automatically resume charging. Whichever device is plugged into the primary will take priority over the secondary outlet. The primary side will most commonly be on the left side of the Smart Splitter, however, in the case that your outlet is upside down the primary will be on the right side.

Do I need to set anything on the unit for it to know the appliance gets priority power?

The Smart Splitter auto-switching technology takes care of everything for you.

How does simultaneous charging work?

If you have two Tesla's or even EV chargers that allow you to set the current limit, you can charge both of your cars at the same time. For example, if you are charging on a 50 Amp circuit you safely pull up to 40 Amps continuous, which means you can set your current limit on your car/charger(s) to charge both cars at 20 Amps. You can also set your the current to 30 Amps and 10 Amps if you would like. If your total power exceeds 40 Amps, the Smart Splitter will sense this and shut off your secondary charger for safety.

How does the Dual-Car Version Work?

The dual car version allows you to charge two cars with one outlet. In this case you would want to plug the car that has less battery in on the primary (PRI) side as it gets prirotiy to charge first. As soon as this car is completely full the Smart Splitter with switch to charging your 2nd car. ORIf you have two Tesla's or even EV chargers that allow you to set the current limit, you can charge both of your cars at the same time.

How does the Appliance Version work?

The Appliance Smart Splitter automatically switches between your appliance and EV charger by sensing when each needs power. There is a primary and secondary outlet on the Smart Splitter, and the primary (PRI) always taking priority. You would most commonly plug your dryer into the primary outlet of the Smart Splitter so it gets priority when you want to do laundry. When you start your dryer the Smart Splitter will automatically pauses your car charger until the dryer cycle is done.
