Welcome to the Forum and yes the 110 chargers get hot they really need a dedicated outlet and not one that uses a GFI and if you use an extension cord it has to be a heavy duty one not one of those $19.95 ones. Go to www.clippercreek.com and look into a level 2 charger they cost around $525.00 those use 220V it's the only way to go . Faster charging cleaner charging I find the Karma likes the 220 charger more then the 110 lol .Just purchased a brand new white and silver Fisker. Probably crazy since i bought with no warrenty but i've been obsesed over this car and couldn't decide on the white or the silver so we bought both....Awesome ride!!!! Keeping my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong.....Looking for a wall mounted charger since the ones that came with the car take forever to charge and get very hot when they're done charging. Has anybody experience this?
