    Interesting. Similar to the Voltec 120V charger, but with a 7 amp lower power mode instead of 8 amp. While looking for pricing I came across this page. It lists the Voltec charge cord at $450, and the Panasonic cord set that comes with the Leaf at $508.

    Both the Leviton and Voltec charge cord are shown as *not* being UL listed. The Leaf's is. Leviton's web site describes which UL standards they're pending on, so maybe it'll be UL by release.

    When I looked a couple months ago just the J1772 connector with minimal wiring was something like $180 OEM price, no electronics included.

    Yes I agree the costs should (and probably will) come down in volume. Up until now volumes have been unit 100s, not unit 100,000s.
    Eeek! You're right...Avnet wants $261 retail for single units of the ITT J1772 connector, 30A, with 20 feet of wire.

    With the 120 volt charger previously restricted, it's good to see that GM will finally make it available. At $450, I will want to consider a portable 240 volt model instead when available.

    If the provided 120 volt charger has a problem, is it covered under the vehicles warranty?

    I bought a spare 120V charger from my local dealer in PA. (My Volt came from VA.) It came within a week (two weeks ago), no worries. It was pretty expensive, maybe $400 or something. But a 240V charger is a TON of money for me, like $5K, because of the distance/contortions to our main breaker panel. For now, the 120V charge-time suffices. I only occasionally deplete the battery, on weekends, and the quick charge probably would not help that much. That said, I had to have a spare cable...

    Just a poke, travelguy2500, to let us know these things when you can. If you still have the plastic bag it came in, and there's a label on it, can you post a photo of that label? It'll help us nail down the part number for those who try to order via a part distributor. I have a part number in the FAQ but I don't know if it's correct.

    Also note that the FAQ has a post that leads you to PlugInAmerica's excellent "accessory tracker" that currently lists about a dozen Level 1 EVSE's, although only 3 have their UL listing so far. The Leviton 120 unit is in there, and is the only one listed that isn't a charging station or an OEM unit like the Voltec.

    My invoice says, "22781210 CABLE 2.215"

    The cost was $450 + $27 tax = $477

    Oh for Pete's sake...you have to enter the part number (22781210) in the search window at the upper left and do a search....
    you will get the same thing I pasted into my post.

    Note that I have not used this supplier so I cannot vouch for them. Caveat Emptor.
