Hi! Florida USA user here! In the space of one week, my wife and I have gone from the gas world to the (mostly) electric world. Bought a used 2017 Chevy Volt and a new 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus (I've never spent so much at one time since buying my home -- EEP! -- but we're psyched to be taking this step). We are having an electrician come to our home in a few days to install...something...on the outside of our house, just outside our can't-park-the-car-in-it-because-it's-too-cluttered garage, so we can easily charge up the cars. But what should we have him install? A 240-volt outlet? Or do we need one of these charging stations I see advertised? Are both fine options? What are the advantages of one versus the other? Our neighbor has a plug-in and just inserts the cable into his 240-volt outlet in his garage...no charging station. And yet we've been told by others that that's not workable...that we NEED to have a charging station for our home and not just the outlet. Obviously, that would be a more expensive endeavor. I need to call back the electrician to clarify what we want, and I would love to be more confident in KNOWING what to tell him. Any feedback the community has would be SO appreciated!! Thank you!!
