  1. Had anyone used a NONDEDICATED 110 plug-in to charge the clarity? Did it cause any problems like throwing a breaker. The manual seems to emphasize that the electric plug circuit only be used by the charger.

    I'm planning to get a dedicated circuit put in, but at the moment am just using the same garage plug in that is also being used by my refrigerator. No issues so far.

    I used a non-dedicated circuit for my 110 charger for about a month before I got my 240 volt plug installed. Even the 240 V is a non-dedicated circuit that is shared with an arc welder in my garage and a sauna in the house. There will never be a case where more than one of these things will be used at the same time.

    I just plug in to regular wall 110 plug with extension cord, since I can't park in garage for now. I did go and get a 12g wire cord. Nothing got tried so far, but nothing else was running either. I'm getting a 240 level 2 charger this Friday that I'll plug in to my dryer plug. (my dryer is now gas, so it's plugged in 110)

    You better check. Most dryer plugs are only 30 amp, so if your L2 charger is more than 24 amps, it won't work.

    Yep me too. We used the supplied 120V cable in an AC outlet by my workbench. No problems after a few weeks until the 240V line was installed.
