Cal, What is the intention with this charger? Is it going to be unmanaged, always-on, private but publicly accessible charging station that can be used by anyone who wants a charge or is it in a private parking lot with parking restrictions so it can only be used by visitors/members and is it intended for as-fast-as-possible L2 (30+ Amps) or just as a convenience to allow people to top up? Is there a limit how much current or power the church wants to provide and/or put the charger on a timer?
Note that the cheapest and most widely usable "charger" is a 120V 20A outlet. If you can have a cheap outdoor (with cover and GFCI) standard 120V outlet for each of the slots (so, 2x 20 Amp breakers) then *anyone* can get a charge if they really need to, it will just be slow and sometimes that is exactly the purpose - not charge more than you need to avoid mooching too much. For L2, I know that EMW has a dual Juicebox but there are plenty others who offer dual chargers, though not everyone is able to share the two chargers on a single circuit, which may be what is needed, depending on whether the church can afford to add dual 240V circuits (and 2x 120V legs for the outlets) Question is if you want to remotely manage the chargers, whether they should be free or paid and which type gives you the best bang for the buck. Just some food for thought.

Any recommendations on which to install? Even Home Despot offers some two dozen choices, and I'm sure some rank better than others. Which are the more flexible, which more trouble-prone, etc?
