My solution was an OpenEVSE built by GlennD here on MNL for 425+shipping - Built in future proofing, adjustable capacity to 50A in 2A increments, multiple plug options if I need them, 120V or 240V, mounts on the wall or portable. I love being able to charge at 27.5 amps. An hour gets me more than 30% of recharge capacity, which is great when I come home for lunch.
I have the OEM trickle charger in the car. Not really for emergencies, but to just store it there. I can't ever see using it. If I am out and about and need a charger I will stop at a L2. I guess if there are no L2's then I would use it (but will probably call for a tow rather than charge at 5% an hour for half a day).
