Level 2 charger question

Mon Oct 14, 2019 1:12 pm

If I buy a new portable level 2 charger can I also use it as a level 1 and plug into a wall socket. I might rent a room at a house and the 1 and 2 both cost the same. I rather buy the 2 and if I buy a house in 4 years I can then install a 240 plug

Try Googling "dual voltage ev charger". Check out TurboCord Dual 120/240V Plug-In EV Charger.

As John Arbuckle once said, "You get what you pay for". Unless you can find an actual user of one of the dual chargers offered on Amazon, all you really have to go on are the consumer reviews, if any, posted on Amazon.

I have a Zencar level 1/2 16 amp charger off amazon. Works like a charm
