Looking to get a second charger for my e-tron. Called Audi and the price is steep, like $2K+.... seems excessive. Any recommendation?
I'm sure it would... just don't use the "wrong" charger. Hah. Sorry, dealers can be good for a laugh sometimes.Greatly appreciate your answer. The folks at Audi told me that using the wrong charger could "burn" the battery.... not sure , are there any particular specs to follow or is that just marketing on their part?
If you have electric rates that are time of use rates or if there is any possibility that you might in the future, get a unit that can be set up to charge only during off peak times. From what I have read here the etron does not make it easy to take advantage of off peak rates.Looking to get a second charger for my e-tron.

4 months in and my ChargePoint 50Amp Flex has been great! I wouldn't buy any other charger. Plus, as chargers go, this one looks very nice.I researched all of the available chargers this past week and decided to go with the ChargePoint Home Flex Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger, 16 to 50 Amp, 240V, Level 2 WiFi Enabled EVSE, UL Listed, Energy Star, NEMA 14-50 Plug or Hardwired, Indoor/Outdoor, 23-Foot Cable.
It was $699 on Amazon.com. Then, I had my electrician add a 50amp circuit breaker to my electrical panel (located just outside from my garage) and a NEMA 14-50 plug for $600 in labor. Then Edison has a rebate of $1000.00 towards the installation of the EV charger. This ChargePoint charger has 50Amps maximum and you can set the amperage for charging on your cell phone app. If your car doesn't accept 50 Amps, you are ready for the next level of EV's which will end up using higher amperage.
