Best EV Home Charger for Mercedes EQE SUV
Updated January 2, 2024, by Michael Kim
Our Top Picks for EQE SUV
The EQE SUV from Mercedes-Benz is one of the most popular all-electric models from the brand. Available in EQE350. EQE500, and AMG trim levels, all versions of the EQE SUV feature a large 100 kWh (90.6 kWh usable) battery capacity and permanent magnet electric motors of various power outputs.
The EQE SUV can charge at 9.6 kW on Level 2 using the 40 amp onboard AC charging equipment. While on the road, the peak charging speed is rated at 170 kW. The 2024 EQE SUV features a CCS / J1772 combination of connectors for charging.
Below, we have compiled a list of the best options for charging the Mercedes EQE SUV at home.
Why Trust US? We have hands-on testing experience with the most popular EV charging products.
ChargePoint Home Flex (50 Amp)
ChargePoint is one of the biggest brands in EV charging, and the Home Flex charger is the official EV home charger recommended by MB USA for their vehicles.
The Home Flex maxes out at 50 amps, so it can provide more than enough current to charge the EQE SUV quickly.
When we tested the Home Flex, we were impressed by the high-quality cord material that managed to stay soft and pliable in hot and cold environments. The cord holster is well integrated into the enclosure, and the ChargePoint app allows the user to manage their home charger as well as activate public ChargePoint locations.
- 50 amp charger, enough for EQE and future models
- 23 foot long charge cable
- Indoor/Outdoor operation
- NEMA 14-50, NEMA 6-50, or hardwired options
- UL Listed and safe
Energy Star Certified, Wifi connectivity, high-quality cord material, choice of NEMA 14-50 or NEMA 6-50 plugs, configurable between 16 and 50 amps
Can’t paint more than one Home Flex to an account, some software features need additional polish
LENZ Level 2 EV Charger (40 Amp)
LENZ is one of our favorite EV brands that we tested in the past year. Their 40 amp home EV charging station is perfect for users looking for a set-it-and-forget-it kind of experience. The unit does not include any network connectivity or apps. Instead, it focuses on the fundamentals: safety, a durable weatherproof enclosure, and a good charging cord. For users with existing 240-volt outlets, installation is a breeze too.
The 40 amp output provides enough current to charge the EQE SUV at full speed with the J1772 connector.
LENZ is based out of California, they offer US-based support and a 3-year warranty in case something goes wrong.
- 40 amps, matches EQE exactly
- 24-foot-long charge cable
- Suitable for Indoor/Outdoor use
- NEMA 14-50 plug
Heavy-duty durable enclosure, 24-foot-long cable made of pliable materials, easy installation
No connected/smart features, the holster makes the cord stick out from the wall
Emporia EV Charger (48 AMP)
The Emporia home EV charger is easy to recommend if you already have other Emporia energy products in your home, as the app can control a variety of Emporia hardware. But the EV charger is a competitive product in its own right. While cheaper than many competitors on the market, Emporia does not cut corners where it matters most in day-to-day usage.
Emporia offers the flexibility to install this charger using a NEMA 14-50 outlet for 40 amp operation. Or buyers can opt to have it professionally hardwired by an electrician for 48 amp output. The plug-in installation is enough to charge the EQE at full speed.
We liked the highly durable single-piece metal charge cord holder because most competing brands include a cheap plastic cord holder in the box. Installation and app configuration were relatively easy as well.
- Up to 48 amps, when hardwired
- 24-foot-long cable
- Indoor/Outdoor operation
- NEMA 14-50 outlet or hardwired
- Lower cost than competitors
- Up to 48 amps of power, app connectivity, and scheduling
- High-quality metal charge plug holder
- The charge cord is shorter than the competition
- The charger enclosure box is made from plastic
Tera P01 Portable EV Charger (32 Amp)
Mercedes EQE SUV owners looking for a charging product they can use at home and on the road should consider the P01 from Tera. We have tested many portable EV chargers, and the product from Tera is a recent favorite because of its attractive design, durable cable, many adapters, and the ability to charge over 240 volts and 120-volt outlets. While you should only use 120-volt NEMA 5-15 outlets in an emergency (because it’s so slow), it’s great to have as a backup option.
It’s rare to see a portable charger with Wi-Fi connectivity as well. The charger pairs easily to their Smart Life app over Bluetooth and connects to your home Wi-fi network. The Tera portable EV charger has a J1772 to connect to Mercedes EVs, but also includes a Tesla adapter in the box. Unlike many competing portable EV chargers, the Tera unit doesn’t overheat when charging at full speed.
- Up to 32 amps
- 25 foot long in total
- Indoor operations
- IP67 water tightness rating
- Level 2 and Level 1 charging
- Wi-Fi Connectivity
Portable, comes with adapters, clear LCD screen, Wi-Fi connectivity
NEMA 14-50 placement at the top of the box may limit mounting options, “Smart Life” app is easy to use but feels incomplete
Electrify America Level 2 Charger (40 Amp)
Every EV owner has probably heard about Electrify America public charging stations. Did you know EA also has an excellent home charging station product too? This one delivers 40 amps, just like the EQE SUV needs.
Frequent users of Electrify America’s public network will appreciate the integration of this home charger with the Electrify America app. Using a single app for managing both home and public charging is the main competitive advantage of this home charger.
The EA home charger is widely compatible with all EVs that support the standard J1772 charging connector. The 24-foot vehicle connector cable is thick durable, and suitable for indoor or outdoor installations.
- Up to 40 amps, can be configured as low as 16 amps
- 24-foot-long charge cable
- Indoor/Outdoor operation
- NEMA 14-50, or can be hardwired
- UL Listed
- Wifi Connectivity
Energy Star Certified and UL Listed, reputable brand and excellent customer support, one app for both public and home charging, 3-year warranty
The charger box is physically larger than most, at 15.75″ x 8.66″. The glossy black plastic shell is sturdy, but may not appeal to everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions about charging the Mercedes EQE SUV
All trims of the EQE SUV sold in North America can accept a maximum of 40 amps on Level 2 (240 volt) home chargers. This means charging at up to 9.6 kW. With the 90.6 kWh (usable) battery pack, the EQE can be fully recharged in about 10 hours overnight.
We would have loved to see 48 amp charging or greater on the EQE SUV, as many rival SUV models offer. However, in practice, it likely won’t make a noticeable difference. Most charging at home is done overnight, and most charging sessions are not 0-100%.
Mercedes placed the charging port on the rear right order of the EQE SUV, just like on their other electric cars. Keep this location in mind when deciding on your EV charger installation location.
Peak charging wattage is rated at 170 kW. According to our charging curve, the EQE can sustain ~170 kW until around 30%, and it can even maintain 150 kW until around 50%. This is an impressive charging performance.
The most efficient version of this SUV is the EQE350 RWD, which is rated at 279 miles by the EPA. The 4Matic models drop slightly to 253 miles.
Why is EVchargerReviews.net different? We actually bring the home charging stations into our garage for hands-on testing for a minimum of two weeks before we can recommend a product.
