Hcl stands for hydrochloride. The chemical name for Wellbutrin is bupropion hydrochloride. Wellbutrin Hcl probably refers to their original, immediate release (IR) formula. It's generally taken in 3 daily doses and is rarely prescribed anymore, because of its higher risk of seizure. Their next formula was SR, or sustained release, taken twice a day. The latest version is XL, or extended release, taken once a day. The active ingredient is the same with all 3. The only difference is the shell of the pill, which determines the rate of release.
