2017 Chevrolet Bolt LT
Just purchased my first EV, a good used base model 2017 Bolt with only 7k miles on it. Wasn't prepared for the jack rabbit starts this vehicle is capable of and love it! I worked for Ecotality 10 years ago, a company that had thousands of public and private chargers all over the US, but went bankrupt years ago, so was exposed to the early affordable technology (the Nissan Leaf). Almost bought one then but for range anxiety and the rapid battery pack degradation here in Arizona, basically from the heat on the uncooled battery packs. I have ordered a 240v 16A charger to plug into my NEMA 6-20 existing socket (I'm told this will get me about 10mph charging) which should be enough for my needs. While I have your ear (eye?), what do you folks think of this cable? Is it viable? You have to plug each end into different 120v legs of your 220. Thanks in advance!
