Default A very basic question

Hi, I've just signed up for this forum on the Ford Focus EV and I have a very basic question.

Up till now I've assumed the Focus EV could be charged either with the charger they plan to sell thru Best Buy, the 3-4 hour charge, or else on standard 110V household current. I've seen Youtube videos that show the Mitsubishi I Miev getting charged either way, which strikes me as an advantage because at least you could get a partial charge from any standard outlet. But in reading through all the posts on this forum just now, along with the Ford site, I don't see any charging system except that J-1772 plug requiring the 220V wiring. I understand this is the best way, but what if you're caught out there somewhere discharged and no high-capacity charging station available?

So does anyone know, does the Focus EV have 110V charging capability as well as 220V?

Thanks - Pat/greeniniowa

Well, I feel a bit silly answering my own question, but I looked again at the Ford web site: http://www.ford.com/electric/focuselectric/2012/

... and they say this:

Focus Electric also comes with a standard 120-volt convenience cord, which allows you to charge the batteries in your own garage, using a standard 120-volt household outlet.

So I guess my question is answered. Whew! That issue was a show-stopper for me.
