Answer: 
You very likely do not have a NEMA 6-30 220V outlet like this one in your garage.
I changed an unused dryer outlet to the receptacle that I needed.
Dryer outlets might not have a ground wire in the receptacle, but mine had the ground wire available.

Answer: 
This EVSE (Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment) requires a 240V receptacle to plug into. Specifically this one is designed to use a NEMA 6-20R socket (20A). Aerovironment does make a "dual" model that can use either the 6-20R (240V) socket or the more common 5-15 (120V, 15A) standard 3 wire socket.
Whether it will charge your electric vehicle faster depends on what you are comparing to. In general, it Read More
This EVSE (Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment) requires a 240V receptacle to plug into. Specifically this one is designed to use a NEMA 6-20R socket (20A). Aerovironment does make a "dual" model that can use either the 6-20R (240V) socket or the more common 5-15 (120V, 15A) standard 3 wire socket.
Whether it will charge your electric vehicle faster depends on what you are comparing to. In general, it should charge faster than a Level 1 (110V) EVSE since it is higher voltage and can supply more current. But the real factor that determines the speed of charging is the charger itself, which is built in to the car.
As an example, take the Chevy Volt. It has a 3.3KW or 3.6 KW charger built in. From a 110V outlet, the standard EVSE (cord) will supply 8 to 12 amps of current and will do a full recharge in 10-12 hours or so. If you use a Level 2 (240V) EVSE it draws more current (16 amps, I think) and will do a recharge in 4-5 hours.
Some vehicles, like the Nissan Leaf have higher power chargers built in (6.6KW) and you see even more difference between Level 1 and Level 2 since Level 1 is not using the full 6.6KW capacity and Level 2 does. Read Less

Answer: 
The EVSE that comes with the Leaf is 12Amp/120V, 1.4kWh, 6 miles per hour.
The Base LEAF, 3.3 kW onboard charger, max about 12 miles of range per hour.
My Leaf, 6.6 kW onboard charger, with the second port for CHAdeMO, about 24 miles per hour of charging, with a strong enough EVSE.
220V EVSE sizes:
15a, 3.3k, 13 mph for either size of onboard charger.
20a, 4.4k, 20 mph, on the larger onboard

Answer: 
Actually that is KWH (kilowatt hour) not kvh. one kilowatt is 1000 watts. volts x amps = watts so this Turbocord is 240 volts x 16 amps = 3840 watts or 3.84 KWH. Your actual voltage may or may not be 240 so the KWH may be lower if your supply voltage is lower. If your voltage is 208 then the output would close to 3.3 KWH
