wildfire, I had not heard of nor seen any charging rate variation as a function of temperature. At 240vac my iMiEV absorbs about 3.08kW; however, you raise a good point and I'll try paying attention to this.
I like the fact that the GE Wattstation consumes ZERO watts when turned off. Our Mitsubishi (Panasonic) L1 EVSE consumes 5W, which over the course of a year means 5W x 1kW/1000W x 24hr/day x 365days/yr x $0.10/kWhr = $4.38
For myself, I preferred a transportable L2 EVSE (SPX Xpress), so I could take it with me to friends' houses and typically plug into their dryer outlets for a recharge. At 33lbs, the GE Wattstation is perhaps a bit too heavy/bulky to do that. Besides, you'll be mounting it outdoors so you should have a totally watertight setup and not utilize some type of external 240vac connector, and the SPX Xpress needs to be carefully sealed against rain (there's a post somewhere by jray3 where he ran into trouble with it because of that).
iDriver - that's an 'interesting' photo
