Re: Egolf 2017 not charging through home 110c outlet

Thanks. I like the splitvolt splitter switch and they also offer a charging cable so total cost on Amazon would be $618. The alternative is to get a 240V dedicated circuit which would cost probably a lot more but would be more convenient in that cable wouldn’t need to go into house but would run out of garage. I will check with electrician on quote to see price difference.

Sounds good. Best of luck! I live in CA where it is common to have a dryer in the garage (in my case, right near the garage door, too). I can see it would be inconvenient if your dryer is not in your garage.

It would only be for relatively short periods of time so I think I could live with it rather than pay electrician a big fee to install outlet in garage. Is there enough juice to run dryer and charge at same time? I wouldn’t want to trip circuits

No, not enough juice. That is why the “smart” splitter only sends power to either your car or the dryer (never both at the same time), with the dryer getting priority.
