Get a propane generator, likely cheaper than any such 'power converter' type system.

Re: Anyone tried an EVdoubler-style product?

I've never heard of such a product, but you'd also want to ensure that the two outlets are on different phases in the breaker panel. As to using a 16A charger, you can likely just swap whatever outlet you have to a 20A breaker circuit, even on GFCI.

Re: Kia Battery Replacement Frustrations [HELP/ADVICE]?

The problem that I am having is that Kia Canada "customer service", at the supervisor level, has told me that there is nothing that they can do. I've equally had two different service centers/dealers tell me that there is nothing more that they can do.
