ChargePoint Home Flex (50 Amp)

ChargePoint Home Flex recommended for Mercedes EVs

The ChargePoint Home Flex charger is the official EV home charger recommended by MB USA (and dealers) 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.

LENZ Level 2 EV Charger (40 Amp)

LENZ EV charger for the EQE

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.


  • Amperage: Up to 40 amps
  • EV Connector: J1772

Tesla Universal Wall Connector (48 Amp)

Tesla UWC and Mercedes EQE SUV

The Tesla Wall Connector may be the most popular home charging station because of how many cars the company sells. But that means they’ve integrated three generations of improvements into the current version of the product, which now comes with a J1772-friendly Universal Wall Charger.

The UWC from Tesla is a good option for EQE owners looking for a reliable hardwired charging station with a quality cord and intelligent holstering system. As a bonus, NACS-connector compatibility means you can charge any EV you acquire in the future. Our only concern is the plastic construction which means it’s not as durable as some other products for outdoor installations.


  • Amperage: Up to 48 amps
  • EV Connector: NACS + J1772
  • Home Connection: Hardwire
  • Cord Length: 24 feet
  • Cord Thickness: 15 mm
  • Weatherproofing:
    NEMA 3R
  • Networking: Wi-Fi
  • App Control: Yes
  • Warranty: 4 years


  • Quality cord, easy to manage
  • J1772 and NACS in connectors in one product
  • Smart cord management


  • Hardwire install only
  • Plastic enclosure means only a NEMA 3R rating

Emporia EV Charger (48 AMP)

Emporia EV charger for EQE

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 operating at 40 amps. Alternatively, 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.


  • Amperage: Up to 48 amps
  • EV Connector: J1772
  • Home Connection: NEMA 14-50 or hardwire
  • Cord Length: 24 feet
  • Weatherproofing:
    NEMA 4
  • Networking: Yes
  • App Control: Yes
  • Warranty: 3 years


  • Lower cost than competitors
  • Emporia 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)

Tera P01 Portable EV charger with EQE SUV

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.


  • Amperage: Up to 32 amps
  • EV Connector: J1772
  • Home Connection: NEMA 14-50
  • Cord Length: 25 feet
  • Cord Gauge: 10 AWG
  • Weatherproofing:
  • Networking: Wi-Fi + BT
  • App Control: Yes
  • Warranty: 5 years


  • 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

Frequently Asked Questions about charging the Mercedes EQE SUV

How fast can the EQE SUV charge at home?

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.

Is 40 amp (9.6 kW) charging enough for the EQE?

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%.

Where is the charging port located on the EQE SUV?

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.

How fast can the EQE charge at Level 3 DC charging stations?

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.

What is the EPA-rated range for the Mercedes EQE SUV?

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.
