The "Quick 220" allows two separate 120 volt / 15 amp outlets (NEMA 5-15R normal household outlets in the USA or Canada) to be combined to be used to create 208 or 240 volts.
This can provide DOUBLE the charge speed for an Electric Vehicle (EV) because the voltage is doubled.
PLEASE READ WARNINGS, LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS BELOW

The 120 volt household receptacles / outlets (NEMA 5-15R or 5-20R) with “GFCI” will not work with Quick 220. Those outlets are usually located outdoors, or at locations that have water present, like pools, bathrooms and kitchens. It’s easy to identify GFCI outlets, since they usually have a TEST and RESET button. It may have a small green or red light to let you know that the GFCI is working, or has tripped.
Comes with testing device and instructions.
You can use this device with the portable EV charge cable*** that is supplied for the:
1) Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In HYBRID (all years for North American delivered cars)
2) Fiat 500e (all years for North American delivered cars)
3) GM Chevrolet Volt (2016-2019 ONLY, for North American delivered cars)
4) GM Chevrolet Bolt EV (all years for North American delivered cars)
5) Tesla (all years for North American delivered cars, except 2008-2011 Tesla Roadster)
***All of the above EV charge cables REQUIRE:
Adapter - NEMA 5-15R to NEMA 6-15P - for use with Quick 220 - Click here for product details
For Tesla cars, ordinarily you would just use the optional NEMA 6-15 adapter plug from Tesla to allow your portable charge cable to plug into the "Quick 220", however, those can be very hard to find. This above adapter solves that issue. This adapter permits the NEMA 5-15 plug that comes with every Tesla portable charge cable (Mobile Connector / UMC) to use a NEMA 6-15 power source, like the Quick 220.
WARNING: Permanent damage to your charge cable, as well as possible fire, injury, or DEATH could result from misuse. USE THIS PRODUCT ONLY WITH THE 208-240 VOLT PRODUCTS LISTED ABOVE. DO NOT EXCEED 12 AMPS.
The typical EV charge rate goes from:
---> 3 miles (5 km) added per hour charging (at 120 volts / 12 amps)
---> up to 6 miles (10 km) added per hour charging (at 240 volts / 12 amps)
All Quick 220 systems are tested by Intertek to meet OSHA standards for use in the work place and to conform to UL Standard 1012 for Power Units.
We recommend Quick 220 use at no greater than 12 amps, the maximum recommended by the National Electric Code (NEC)for continuous duty on a 15 amp circuit.
