Ok, I have not run my Bolt to zero energy left yet, but I often wonder what I'll do if that happens. I'd prefer to not have to call a tow truck to haul me home. So I got to thinking, can the Bolt be charged from a generator? The generator itself is an inverter style with a 240 volt output to power travel trailers. I would need to use an adapter to connect the generator to my Chargepoint charger and then plug that into my Bolt. This would sure beet the 110 volt charger supplied with the car. If I was 20 miles from home it would take me 5 hours to get enough juice to get home, versus the half hour it would take on my plug in Chargepoint. Anyone ever done this? Anything I need to watch our for?
