Default Re: [EVDL] Isn't 120 V. outlet a sufficient "EVSE" ?

I charge at a little less than 5 miles/hour pulling 16a from a 20a outlet. =
So a 40 mile day takes over 8 hours to charge back up. And the low ra=
tes (if you are on time of use around here) are from 12am to 7am, so I get =
7 hours to recharge. Doesn't quite work. And that's on a 20a outlet, =
not 15.

guess I need to lighten up on the right foot...

To summarise, for charging at home, The 120 V. 15 A. outlet

as is
typical in the American home provides sufficient electrical power to
recharge an electric car in about five hours to replace that charge used in
driving up to 40 miles daily (That is 85% of American drivers.)
