Thanks for the input. I saw the Schumaker one from previous postings in the forum. How long does it take to charge from empty to full on 220V? Also do you have to switch to 16amps or does it do that automatically? I think one of the one I was looking at you had to press a button to switch every time you use it or it defaults to 8AMP charging.
With the Volt it will charge at 240V, 16 Amp without switching anything. If you're charging at 120V it will default to 8 Amp.

Charges from empty to full in about 4 hours. Might not be "future proof" but my Leaf SV came with a 40 Amp EVSE so if I need faster charging I can wire that in. Might be a waste to buy a faster charger now if the car is going to ship with a fast-ish EVSE anyway.
