I put a deposit down on my Volt last week here in Oregon. My local dealer will be getting two mine and a demo. I hope to see my 2012 in the fall. Here are my questions;
First, of the four chargers recomended by chevrolet, which is the best for the Volt?
I understand the Voltec and SPX Level 2 are smaller and require a 20 amp breaker. The ECO Blink and the ChargePoint require a 40 amp breaker and seem to have higher amperage. Do these higher amperage chargers make a difference in any way such as charging times, safety, battery protection, etc.? I am a little retarted when it comes to this stuff. Any help or explanations would be much appreciated.
Second, If the smaller amperage chargers are equal, then, what is the best way to measure Kw input into the car. I would like to be able to accurately measure the electric fuel cost of this outstanding car!
Thanks for your help!
