Rivian Charger

I borrowed a family member's Rivian R1S over the weekend.  I have to say, I greatly enjoyed driving it.  I think my wife enjoyed driving it more though.  Something about the heated seats and the instant torque.  

Warning: Don’t do 0-60 mph tests with a dog in the back.  We didn't do this, but we know that it wouldn’t be good.  

I decided to throw the Rivian on a 120V outlet to see how slow it would charge.

I plugged the R1S in at 3:56pm on Sunday and checked the charged at 11:56am on Monday (I’m no math wizard, but I think that’s 20 hours).  The end result was an underwhelming 52 miles gained.  That’s 2.6 miles gained per hour.  

No fault of Rivian.  I just need a Level 2 charger.
