Yea! another great development today. Since the island I live on is outside of GeekSquad's Honolulu branch service area, Eaton decided to sell a charger directly to me, and it will be on its way on Monday. Hopefully I'll be able to get the building permit and my electrician scheduled soon so I will be able to do level 2 charging from my carport. By the way retail price on the charger is not $700, like several articles have mentioned. It is actually $1075, which isn't too bad when you compare it with the Home Depot options. Also, according the the Mitsubishi disclosure form I had to sign when I ordered the car, you must use the Eaton charger to retain the 8yr/100,000 mi battery warranty.
Should be driving my new very efficient electric car soon! Just for other Hawaii people's interest, I'm also installing 8 extra 260W solar panels (we already have 24 panels for the house) just so I won't have to buy electricity to run the car. Eventually I think I'll break even, especially since gas here is consistently over $4/gal.
jjlink-> I think a ship takes about 4 days to cross the Pacific, so the Washington/Oregon guys should have their cars next week I think.
