The instruction manual for the volt says you are not supposed to use a GFCI outlet. However... outlets located in garages are required to be GFCI by code in most cities now. The 120 Voltec unit does have a GFCI built in. You have a couple of choices here:
1 Violate your local code and replace the GFCI outlet with a standard commercial grade outlet. (The charger has a GFCI detector built in.)
2 Try a different brand of GFCI outlet. Some may be more compatible with the Voltec charger than others.
I'd go for #2. If it's problematic, find one designed to reduce nuisance tripping.
