  1. What EVSEs will work on NEMA 6-20 or NEMA 10-30?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Are there reputable EVSEs that I can plug into a NEMA 6-20 or a NEMA 10-30 outlet? L1 or L2 is fine with me. 6-20 would be my preference, since my house has a dedicated circuit just for this outlet, which is not in use (working properly per my multimeter, though). Sounds perfect, right...
  2. New Volt Charging Station 240V

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I was building a 2015 volt on the Chevrolet website, and saw where you can add on a 240V charging station for $463. Is this charger compatible with a 2012 Volt? The part number is 23488977, and you can find it for $350 online. Does anyone have this 240V charger...
  3. Parking on Charger Cable -- Um Bad Idea :(

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Oh well live and learn -- so I am out traveling this weekend in Wisconsin. The hotel, thankfully has outdoor plugs at most of their parking lot light poles. And OMG Madison has dozens of free chargepoint stations downtown. Per capita I bet it rivals or beats LA in this respect. (I wonder if...
  4. Drive over 110V charger power cord?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey all-- I live with a friend who takes the interior garage space with his car (his house :p), so I park outside and hence have to use the portable 110V charger. However, the way the garage is setup relative to the outside plug, the cord to the 110V charger crosses the driveway to get to my...
  5. Onboard EVSE

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Can anyone tell me why we don't just have a retractable 120v electrical cord connected to the VOLTs charging system that can just be reeled out and plugged into a standard US 120v socket when we're not at home or tethered to a 240v Blink or other high end charger? Why isn't the 120v charger that...
  6. Would this 25 foot cord work with the Power Xpress?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I need a 25 foot cord for the Power Xpress as it will not reach my house without it, and "trenching" the power cord is more expensive according to the electrician. Would this cord work for the Power Xpress? If not, are there any 25 foot cords available? The one offered by SPX will not be in...
  7. Should GM use better wire and plugs on the 120 volt Voltec Charger?

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Voltec 120 volt charger cord. Closing thread. It was already changed!! This is from 03-21-2012: ORIGINAL POST The 120 volt charger that comes standard with every new Volt has an undersized power cord. (Shame on you.) The wire gage on the 120 volt utility plug is #16. #16 is too small...
  8. Installation of Voltec Charge Station using NEMA 6-20R receptacle (lots of pictures)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The Voltec Charge Station requires a dedicated 20A 240v circuit, and the NEMA 6-20R is the U.S. standard outlet for such a circuit. A convenient reference chart can be found here. I had one of these outlets installed in my garage a few years ago during an exterior remodel for occasional use...
