I'm looking to install a level 2 charger ... that will permit me to park and charge outside in the driveway since the car won't be garage parked at all times. ... I plan to have the outlet installed on the interior wall of the garage adjacent to the garage door. ... Anyone counter that solution or prefer other chargers over the JuiceBox?
I'm going to second Gary's external outlet recommendation.Another idea for your Red option is to install a 50-amp Service (NEMA 14-50 receptacle recommended) to that area and set it up similar to a RV connection. ... There are many possibilities.
That 20ft TurboCord that came with your T8 is good for both 110V (Level1) and 220V/240V (Level2) outlets and costs $500(!) but was of course free from Volvo.
If an exterior Level2 outlet (NEMA 6-20) is installed (interior one costs $6 @ HomeDepot) near the red car - either by an electrician or you can do it all yourself if you're comfortable
- putting the proper breaker in the main panel
- wiring to the main panel
- digging a trench and doing exterior wiring
- looking up local/state code requirements
The plus of doing this is saving $500+ on a "landlocked" Level2 charger box and putting that free ($500 value) TurboCord from Volvo to good use! (I put in an interior NEMA 6-20 outlet and didn't spend more money on another Level2 charger box - example setup photo from TurboCord shown below.)
Let us know how you end up and good luck!
