PLAINVILLE, Conn. -- GE Energy (NYSE: GE) has reached an agreement with Amazon.com to sell its award-winning GE WattStationTM Wall Mount electric vehicle (EV) charger directly to U.S. consumers through the online retailer’s popular website.

Just in time for the holidays, EV drivers can now buy GE’s wall-mounted EV charging station online by simply clicking and buying it on Amazon.com, just like any other product. Available for use in the United States and Canada, the GE WattStation Wall Mount — a fast, easy-to-use EV charging solution — is part of GE’s ecomagination portfolio of products and services.

“As demand and interest in the GE WattStation continues to grow, we’re excited to give our customers an easy way to purchase the charger,” said Sergio Corbo, chief marketing officer for GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business. “We believe the product is well-suited to an online purchasing experience.”

With the new Amazon.com deal, EV owners can now purchase the fast, easy-to-use Level 2 EV charger anytime, anywhere, from any device. By making it easier than ever for electric vehicle drivers to purchase its state-of-the-art EV charger, GE is helping to lead the creation of the “end-to-end” charging infrastructure needed to electrify transportation in the future.

The GE WattStation Wall Mount delivers a full-cycle charge to a 24 kWh battery in only four to eight hours, whereas plugging an EV into a standard electrical outlet would require 12-18 hours to provide the same level of charge. In addition, unlike other EV chargers available to consumers, the GE WattStation comes equipped with built-in fuses to provide overload protection in the event of a fault occurrence.

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations, the EV charger is NEMA 3R rated to resist rain, sleet and even ice. The unit measures only 24 inches tall, 16 inches wide and 6 inches deep. A flexible cord conveniently wraps around the unit to keep it organized and off the ground.

A Fortune 500 company headquartered in Seattle, Amazon.com began in 1995 as an online bookstore and has grown into the world's largest online retailer, offering a vast array of consumer products.
