I just got my PHEV today and doing a charge from 120. I was at 70% to start it'll take about 5 hrs to fully charge. I'm trying to gauge whether a Level 2 is needed or not.
I was at about 20% charge last night. I plugged it in at around 6 pm and it took about 10 hours to full charge. There are a few settings on my charger for different amp coming in, 6a, 8a, 10a, and 12 a. I had it on 10a. It is a bit faster on 12aI am picking up my PHEV today in Deep Sea Blue. I was also wondering if I needed to get a Level 2 charger so I am curious to know how long your charging took at 120volts since that is what I was going to start with too. I am in Alberta and we are on a contract with one of our electricity providers at $.03/kwh so hopefully the charging won't break the bank. Looking forward to your resluts and comments.
Yes the charger gives you options to set at 6 a, 8 a, 10 a or 12 aThe max you can set the included charger is 12amps, it will not let you set it any higher than that.
How long is the cord?The max you can set the included charger is 12amps, it will not let you set it any higher than that.
I haven't measured it, but around 20 feet. I've been using a medium duty extension cord which worksHow long is the cord?
Just idle curiosity…any rebates/tax credits in Canada for level 2 charging setup? In the US there is a $1000 federal tax credit for install and, in my area (CT), a $300 rebate from the electric company for a ChargePoint Wi-Fi enabled charger. At $2000 for electrician and $699 for ChargePoint, still a bit out of pocket.Yes the charger gives you options to set at 6 a, 8 a, 10 a or 12 a
Not the subject matter expert but I can tell you what was used for mine after Friday.What gauge wiring do I need to install at home for a Level 2 - 32 amp charger?
