I keep seeing all of this mention of having an electrician come to the home to install a charger. Will this be required? I was under the impression the leaf could charge from a regular 110V electrical outlet. I realize the expensive charger would allow it to recharge faster, but I really don't need that.
I currently drive an electric vehicle and already have a 20-amp socket on the wall just where I need it. But because I drive only about 10 miles a day, it really doesn't take very long to recharge the car from such short trips. So I figure when I get my Leaf, I should also be able to get by with 110V outlet, even if it takes a little longer to charge. Even if I decided to make a cross-town trip, I would still think by the next day I should be charged up plenty for my short commute to work.
