It's a 3 car garage and the 240 outlet is right on the other side of the power box in the 1 car side of the garage ...I actually installed the black "stop" you see in this pic before I got the lvl2 charger -- but it just so happens that because of the location of the outlet the chord ramp also acts as a stop :-)

My level 2 charger experience.
1. Don' buy "more" charge amps ( 16) than your Niro PHEV can use. ( When i the car THEN i upgrade the charger. )
2. Research chargers that meet the 16 amp threshold.
3. What did I buy and why?

AmazingE Level 2, 240 Volt EV Charging Station by CLIPPER CREEK ( Amazon Prime $257.00 free shipping )

Notes: ONLY one I could find with UL certification. Company located in California for Q & A , not a mystery 800 #
Tested with inferred temperature meter. Surface temperature 104 degrees average in a 85 degree garage.
Quality flexible almost kink free 16' supply cable with excellent fitting PHEV plug.
Always keeps up with the NIRO charge time.
5 months use. Smile every time I plug in.
