Re: Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

IMO, you're getting ahead of yourself on all of this. Since you can recharge at work, in all probability you may never need L2 charging at home . . . . and if it turns out you might, why not stick with the dryer extension cord and your Upgraded EVSE for the time being until you've had the car a few...

Re: Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

JoeS, thank you for your advice. I am re-reading through all suggestions and trying to take everything in stride. As has been noted, I'm a bit overwhelmed at the moment. What I haven't mentioned before is that I tend to get a little OCD with projects and never like to "settle" for good eno...

Re: Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

Barry, that's awesome that the electric gods smiled upon you and everything fell into place for a relatively inexpensive 240V install. Running a dedicated line out to my garage will NOT be as quick and cheap, I know it. First, the electric panel is in the basement on the backside of the house wherea...

Re: Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

Thanks, Don! Okay, here is my current plan of attack. I work for a regional airport in the Chicago suburbs. When I got in today, I asked the director of our maintenance department if we have any QC stations on site, and if not, if there was a parking space anywhere near a regular 120V outlet. He ask...

Re: Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

More and more great advice. Everyone here has been wonderful. So here's another question about what I can do in the short term. I fully plan to upgrade my L1 EVSE as soon as I get it. Sure, I'll have to drive the minivan for area days in the meantime, but what's a couple more days. Unfortunately the...

Re: Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

I'm guessing installing a dedicated 240V line is NOT a DIY project?!

Signing paperwork for my new i tonight!

Hi, all. New to these boards and first post here. Actually, it's my first post about any EV on any board! I am not an i owner yet, but will be after tonight (technically). My wife and I are going in to our local Mitsu dealer to purchase a new 2012 i SE in raspberry metallic. We are both very, very e...
