Auto-Switching works through a priority charging system. For example, by charging your EV on the secondary outlet, when you start your dryer (plugged into the primary outlet), the Smart Splitter automatically pauses the EV charging session. When the dryer cycle is finished, the EV automatically resumes charging. All automatic; no intervention needed. This ensures you don’t need to worry about overloading your circuit or plugging and unplugging your devices.
The Smart Splitter is compatible with most home 240V NEMA outlets (See below). Popular outlets include the NEMA 14-50, 14-30, 10-30, 6-50 and 10-50. The Smart Splitter comes with the same outlet type on both sides. If your EV charger and wall outlet are different you may need an adapter which can be purchased alongside your Smart Splitter.

No. The Smart Splitter's built-in load sensing algorithms work just fine without an app—or an internet connection. The Smart Charging App gives you more control and information about your charging, but is not involved in auto-switching or simultaneous power.
Whether you own or rent, any home with a 240V outlet you want to power two devices through will work.
In some cases, it may be necessary to purchase a high-quality 240V extension cable to reach an EV and EV charger that is some distance from the Smart Splitter
No problem! Wall passthrough kits are available online and at your local hardware store. Alternatively, you can install conduit between and along walls for devices that are not immediately next to another. With this use case, we recommend working with a local electrician to be sure everything is set up correctly. You can find a local electrician in most territories through Qmerit here.
