Charger for PHEV

4 years ago

I have just purchased a Mitsubishi PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle). It came with a 110 volt charging cord, which will charge the car in 8 hours, at 8 Amps. Supposedly, it has a 12 Amp setting, but it doesn't seem to work; I'll have to speak to the dealer about that. It will fully charge the battery overnight at 8 Amps. I can get a level 2 charger, which requires a 240 volt receptacle, but I'm not sure if it will be very useful. Plus, they cost $400-$900 plus the cost of a 240 volt receptacle installation. Any suggestions?
