This is 120 volts with a current draw of 8 or 12 amps. This results in a possible charge rate of .96 KW/h at 8 amps or 1.44 KW/h at 12 amps.Level 2
This is 240 volts with a current draw of 15 amps. This results is a possible charge rate of 3.6 KW/h.These are the only options available for the Volt. Using these rates you can calculate the (theoretical) length of time it will take to recharge the battery:
18.5KWh / .96 KW/h = ~ 19 hoursWhile you can purchase an EVSE which permits a larger current draw (say, 30 amps) the Volt will not charge any faster because the maximum current the car will ever draw is 15 amps.
18.5KWh / 1.44 KW/h = ~ 13 hours
18.5KWh / 3.6KW/h = ~ 5 hours
