Yes, the charger really is 4,000 watts.
There is also a 1,500 watt unit as you mentioned.
Even more surprising is that Greg also has a 5,000 Watt unit.
I think there is also a 3,000 watt unit, but I have to check my email
from him to confirm that.
I got a user guide from him along with a price list dated April 1, 2009
The chargers put out about half as much charge current at 120 VAC than
they do a 240 VAC as you would expect.
I have a photo of the 5,000 watt unit that shows a small fan in the
middle of the heat sink.
I'll see if I am successful in uploading these documents in the files
