So I am the proud owner of an ACME buck-boost transformer. (sounds like something between back to the future and wily coyotee). What a wonderful difference a few volts make. The charging anxiety is now gone. It has been 4 months since I have been able to pull in the garage and charge right away. It is a real breath of fresh air to have this convenience restored.
Thanks to the BMW team that was out to diagnose the NJ power issue. I am glad to have this behind me.
