I will echo Will's advice. Don't charge on the 110
for too much longer. I killed my first charger by
using too much 110. I had to replace it with a new
one from Solectria that cost $2-3K. Not good. Put
down the money and have a 220 outlet installed ASAP.

evidence that it causes stress on the charger. Get
the 220 vac in as soon
