More Volt Owners Going Online
Juicing up the Chevy Volt is easier than one might think: Plug the car into a standard 110-volt outlet and allow between eight and 10 hours to fully charge a spent battery.
Rick Lipinskas wanted to do the job in less time: He ordered a custom-designed 240-volt charger that fully restores the battery in four hours tops.
He had the special charger installed two weeks ago in the garage of his home in Guilderland after learning that his hybrid electric Volt—number 1,428 of the 10,000 that General Motors plans to make in 2011—was assembled and ready for shipment.
