Is it worth investing in a good L2 charging hookup?

    PIP would replace Liftback, not the Leaf. We need one car with range, but ideally both should have EV for local driving.

    The last little bit of the charge will never be fast, so you don't get quite as much improvement for a full charge as a quick calc would make you think as you go to faster charging. If you come home for an hour and leave again frequently, then L2 is perfect. If come home for dinner, and sleep, then L2 is kinda superfluous.
