My brother's Volt has a manual switch for use on a 110 volt circuit: 15 amps for a dedicated circuit, 8 amps for a shared circuit. I don't see any kind of setting on the Model S to limit the current while charging. I understand that the charger could sense what type of adapter is in use, and regulate the current for higher voltage circuits, but I don't see how it could know what kind of fuse or breaker is in use, or whether that circuit is dedicated or shared. I don't want to blow a fuse while charging from a motel's standard outlet.
