  1. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Here is a link to the level 2 adapter I bought to use with the stock charger for a 2016 and up @ Home depot for $10.98, Heavy Duty and has LED indicator to show it is powered. I bought the 2 pole breaker, wire and outlet. Everything was like $50 total and it works great. Make sure you try the...
  2. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I'm a bit confused. I have a 2018 Volt Premier and I'm looking to install level 2 charging at my house. I have a couple of questions because I read that I should have a 40amp breaker in the panel and I thought I could use a 30amp for the Volt. I'm also...

    Hi everyone, New 2018 Volt Premier owner here! Seeking advice on recommended charger (or is it EVSE?) for home charging. - Can I get by with just the Level 1 charger? Which models do you recommend? - I would need at most a 10-12 foot cord given the configuration of my tiny garage and squeezing...

    At the beginning of July 2016 I changed from a 2011 Ford Fusion, 3.0 V6 that had AWD and routinely delivered no more than 21 MPG in mixed driving to a 2017 Volt Premier. I almost never use the back seat of my vehicles for passengers so I don't miss the Fusion's generous rear seating. My EV range...
  6. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Finally got my 220v setup working (thank you Chris TX) so I can more easily fully charge the car. First time, it read 56 miles at full charge, second time (yesterday) it read 58, this morning it reads 61 miles. My driving technique is improving ... where can I expect the range to level off at?

  12. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    A few months ago I built and installed an EMW JuiceBox Level 2 charger. It's been great. After a month of successful (and fast!) charging, a situation came up where the Service Engine light came on and the car would no longer charge from the Level 2 charger. I called OnStar and they said I...

  15. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    In May 2012, I purchased a VolTec Level 2 charger manufactured by Bosch. It came with a one year warranty. Last Sunday, it died. No green lights, no trigger light, nothing. I contacted Bosch Customer service. The rep was sooooooo sorry and took my information and the product number from the...

    I found an old dryer outlet in the house I'm renting that is not in the garage, but in the laundry room next to the garage. It is on a 30amp circuit according the breaker panel. Could I get the Clipper Creek LCS-25P with the NEMA L6-30 plug for $549...
  17. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Hi there! ;) I have a simple question. Assuming the in-car charger is 3,3kw (3300w) max rated, can I buy a 3kw (3000w) transformator from 110v to 240v !? This way, I just buy a LCS-25 to be able to bring the power to the car and thats it!? Plus, I can bring the transfo with me everywhere where...
  18. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I know there's a thousand threads on Lvl 2 chargers, but one thing I don't see addressed is a Lvl2 smart charger. One that connects either via WIFI or Zigbee. Anyone have recommendations on one? I just want to check on it now and then - I'm in Colorado and part of the EnergyHub program that has...

    Okay, so I've ordered my Volt, and I'm excited to get it, but I'm a little overwhelmed :confused: by all of the choices for charging. I think it'd be beneficial to go Level 2, so I'm looking for input. I found this excellent, informative post...
