    I'm thinking about getting the wall charger and leaving the mobile in the car in case I need it on the go.
    The wall unit pulls more amps than the mobile 14-50 right?

    That Ram is just an artist's render based on sneak peeks. Don't write it off yet.

    Yeah, I'm not digging the cab to bed transition.
    Plus I don't know what's going on with the front end, looks short and weird.

    I keep one in the trunk, and one in my garage. Just carry the adapters (that come with it) in the bag just in case
    The mobile you can connect to a 14-50 with the adapter (I believe supplied).

    That is what I do/have. I keep the 120V charger in the trunk for "oh shit" situations or to top off and use my wall charger in my garage for daily charging.

    If I have one recommendation for an EV owner, get a home wall charger. It eliminates the need to use public charging. Wall chargers pull more juice!

    Planning on charging at home 95% of the time, I think I'll get both chargers and keep the mobile setup in the trunk with the 14-50 plug.
    Mounting the wall charger in the garage.

    And... answering my own question, it looks like the wall charger pulls more than the mobile.

    Ya a standard 110v outlet is going to charge MUCH slower. The wall charger (can also set via BT) is cool, and charges at 48amps. The NEMA 14-50 (which is what I have) charges at 32A.

    No, I won't charge with the 110v unless it's an emergency.
    I was on the fence about the mobile 14-50 or the wall connector (second pic).
    Sorry for my babbling confusion.

    The 14-50 is plenty for me. I think the wall charger is more beneficial if you lived in a condo or something and can limit to which vehicles, by VIN can charge there. Besides, the 14-50 may come in handy for other uses too if needed

    Yes but like mentioned above, a 14-50 is plenty fast if you're plugging in at home most days.

    These Out of Spec Youtube guys have produced some very nice EV reviews. Here's Lightning vs Rivian towing from Grand Junction to Ft Collins CO. Nowhere near the same as towing a travel trailer, though. A TT would cut range by half I think.

    They don’t make these sizes anymore (believe they were 2016-2020) but some of these have gone really strong. Of course, like any manufacturer you’re vehicle won’t always be problem free (including Toyota). The numbers in front is the battery capacity (ie-75kwh) when they stopped making these, they also went away with “ludicrous mode” where you get an extra jolt of power with it warming up the battery

    Oh, I love the freedom and all, but with that comes the responsibility. If I ever want to own a home of any kind of value I can't keep buying cars every few years. I make good money for my area, but not enough to do that all the time.

    Porsche is a brand, not a model. Porsche didn't label their sedan as a 911 in an attempt to market the performance glory to solidify sales. They built a new car with a new moniker and it stands on it's own without being propped up at the expense of a legend.

    Totally agree here.

    Sounds like they’ll dilute a classic name like Ford did with the Mustang/Mustang Mach-E. If they are trying to make a new vehicle, just give it a new name. I know it’s not so black and white to the marketing folks, but seems risky to make a new car using a age old name. Names so old (911, Corvette, Mustang) that they are basically their own brands!

    Dodge did the same thing with the Charger. Not a terrible looking car but an an awful use of a historic name. Could have called it a Coronet and been fine, and then the current Challenger could have been the Charger. When it first came back it looked more like a classic Charger anyway.
