Charger waterproof?

1690 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  RickyM
I just have the charger than came with my 2016 Smart. I don't have a garage but have a car port so it's pretty protected but with a storm may end up some rain. Just wondering how waterproof or maybe water resistant the charger is or do I need to put it inside or in my car when there is a storm?

Lear-Intertek Level 1 EVSE Manual - OEM

Lear says - "Weatherproof rating allows for outdoor use. Rated for indoor/outdoor use protected against water, ice and dust - NEMA 6 rating."

As mentioned by NW453, the EVSE enclosure should be protected by avoiding placement in areas that may be prone to puddles or flooding.
