Several weeks ago we had the electricity ran in the garage in anticipation to getting the T8. We picked up our T8 one week ago, and realized that we had done a little overkill and the wrong type of plug. I tried to find out what type of plug the T8 charging cord takes, but could not find it written down - maybe I just overlooked it somewhere.
According to the manual, the T8 charges at 15 Amps. We had a 50Amp circuit and plug installed with a NIMA 14-50 type plug, which was overkill.
On Friday we changed out everything to meet the needs of the T8. Here is what you need:
Plug Type: Legrand 5851 http://www.legrand.us/passandseymour...ngle/5851.aspx
Circuit breaker: 20 Amps
Of course you can remove the 120-240 adapter on the plug, and charge with 120, but it takes over 2 times as long.
Hope this helps others getting ready for the T8.
