The EV1's smart charger automatically recognizes 110 volt and 220 volt currents.
It draws about 15 amps @ 110 volts and about 8 amps per leg (wire) @ 220 volts.
It is NOT recommended to charge in a standard 15 amp 110 volt receptacle except for short periods of time. A 20 amp receptacle on a 20 amps circuit is required.
GFI protection at the receptacle or the breaker is required.
The car will not charge faster when plugged into a 220 volt receptacle.
The EV1 is compatible with the UK Twizy charging receptacles but note that the public charging stations owned and maintained by Current Vehicles are only for use by Twizy renters.
Private Twizy charging receptacles such as those at Swizzle Inn are available for any restaurant patron.
NOTE: If you have a standard outdoor 110 volt 15 amp receptacle, it MIGHT be possible to simply swap it for a 20 amp receptacle. Please consult your electrician.
