BMW USA says the following about the BMW i Charging Station:

Combining BMW i award-winning design with reliable, convenient home charging, the BMW i Charging Station, available exclusively at BMW i Centers, is the sensible choice.

Designed to complement your BMW i vehicle, this wall-mounted charging station reduces charging time for the BMW i3 to around 3.5 hours (7kW at 240v). Plus, with the provided 25 foot cable, you will have the flexibility to charge from your preferred location.

Charging is simple: just plug in and charging begins immediately. Or, use the BMW i Remote App, or the in-vehicle low cost charging timer, to schedule charging to coincide with Time of Use rate plans, available from many utility companies, that make nighttime charging less expensive. Either way, you can enjoy the satisfaction of waking up to a fully charged vehicle.
