Default New to Forum with Question about Charging Stations

       
There are so many choices for 240 V EV Chargers...can someone discuss the pros and cons...I am anxious to put a charging station by my driveway outside. Is this problematic and which charge is recommended ?

City owned chargers are 240 and work fine, plus no cost with 'Charge Point'.

I got a GE charger on Amazon... can be used inside or out (I have it hanging in my garage). Works VERY well, fast and efficient... the only way to go!

Default 240 charge cord

       
I installed a 240 charger at my sons house 8 years ago. It is an outside instillation. I believe it is a Charge Point. I used it last week with the new Volt and it still works.

I've used the Volt charger plugged into 240V from the get-go and it works just fine and quickly; it's the same unit they use in Europe for their Volt version called the Amp, where all receptacles are generally 240v not 120v. Rather than buying an expensive adaptor to plug into a typical 240 receptacle, I altered the 240V receptacle by buying a less expensive but 20A three prong receptacle and attached a semi permanent sign that denotes it's 240V. No problems whatsoever, but I'm sure you should use your own judgment and verify for yourself what I've discovered. When I sell the house I'll remove the receptacle entirely just to be safe.
