    I bought my 220v charger for my GLE550e at Costco on line when they were running a special for About $350. I changed my electric dryer plug to be compatible with the plug on the charger and mounted the new outlet back to back in my garage from my utility room. I don’t use the electric dryer outlet anyway. The car now charges in about 2 hrs instead of the 8+ on 110v.
