I just got my new used Kia Soul today. Very excited.
I read some forum discussions, but was not able to follow it.
I understand the default Level 1 charger is a 12 Amp.
Question #1: Is it waterproof? I Plan on keeping the car and charger outdoors.
Online they sell aftermarket ones that claim to be 16 Amps, and therefore 25% faster. Is this possible and true? I understand there are some risks of fire, but at least it will be outside and far from my house. Does anybody else use these faster chargers? I don't drive much so I don't plan on getting a Level 2, so the extra 25% would be nice!
Extension cords. If I wanted to add a few feet to the 12Amp, could I get a Amazon extension cord that is super thick?
Like a Heavy Duty Yellow Extension Cable rated 12 gauge heavy duty wire, 15 amp, 125 volt, 1875 watt.
3 wire extension cord, 6 foot, 13 amp, 125V, 1625 watt, 5-15P/R
