Can I charge at home if I live in an apartment or condo?
Yes, there are several options for Rivian owners in apartments or condos.
It is increasingly common for apartments and condos to install Level 2 chargers in communal parking spaces as a resident amenity, so check to see if your apartment or condo already offers this benefit. Rivian vehicles can charge using any Level 2 charger with the common J-1772 plug. If your complex doesn’t offer Level 2 chargers yet, Rivian Waypoint chargers provide additional coverage.
If your parking space or garage has an existing outlet, you can use the included Rivian Portable Charger. You can use a standard 120V outlet (like the outlet used to plug in your cell phone charger) for a slower charge, but it may also be possible to upgrade your outlet to a NEMA 14-50 240V outlet.
Many workplaces offer Level 2 chargers, and there are many public charging stations as well.
