As for the other feature email [email protected] to ask them for that feature. It may show up in a future update if they get enough interest.

Hi,

I looked for some information regarding weather resistance on the charger that comes with the PHEV, the one to use on the normal power outlet, and couldn't find anything regarding it.

Does anyone know if it is rain or snow resistant? is it possible to charge it on the driveway if you don't have a garage or in this case it would really be necessary to use a outdoor LV 2? A waterproof cover for the GFCI outlet would be enough?

Looking at the stock L1 cable it is designed to keep water away from the electrical contact points. So I would say just use a waterproof cover for the GFCI outlet.

Salut FHenrique. Personnally, i used it once. Always used a L2 charger at home and on public chargers. For our winters, if you dont have a garage, i would not use the L1 personnal charger. you have a 600$ Qc Gouv. rebate to gat a L2 charger.! why not use it!
