How many amps does the charger draw on 120 volts? Is there an amp selector? I do not want to blow fuses in my old home.

I would seek professional assistance prior to plugging in the charger, there should be a rating on the charger body, also I would have thought that this electronic automobile, would be suited for your home

The 120 volt chargers draw about 12 amps. maximum. A standard 15 amp circuit should be fine. 20 amp even better. The circuit should be for the charger ONLY as the current draw is pretty near the maximum of a 15 amp circuit.

If you are having them run a line why don't you have one run for the fast charger? The 120V chargers are slow.
