In this video we install a 40 amp breaker into a circuit breaker panel and hook this up to an appliance, in this case, the GE electric vehicle (EV) Durastation Level 2 Charging Station. Although I made this video to accompany my video for the charging station installation, you can learn how to install a breaker and hook it up to any appliance by watching this video. You have to remember to select a breaker that fits into your circuit breaker panel, and to select a breaker such that 80 percent of the amperage limit rating for the breaker is equal to or greater than the maximum current rating for the appliance. So for example, for a 30 watt appliance, such as the charging station we install, the 40 amp breaker is sufficient. In the other two videos in this series you can see the unboxing of the GE Durastation, and then the mounting and connecting of the charging station to the circuit breaker.
