So I live just 60 minutes south of you in Dutchess. I used the 120v charger originally but on weekends when I often go out twice the 204v charge came in very handy if you are trying to use electric all the time so I did buy the clipper creek with a a dryer plug format for portability touse at other homes if needed. However if you dont see that use or you can go out twice on one charge, no reason to get the 240v charger. Its really a personal choice. I use electric about 90% of all my driving since having my volt gen 1 for now some 4 years.Thanks for all this guys. I will be able to charge at work on 240V, so I am going to see how it goes for a couple of months before deciding whether or not to wire in a 240V outlet in the garage. However I do like that, with an adapter, the existing EVSE can do either. Love the old sig llninja!
