I bought this charger off Amazon back in November when I got my Volt- it's
been working well and matches the Volt's max 16 amp draw. I have just what
is on the ebay deal no adapter cord.  Apparently yes it can adapt down to
120v with a adapter cord, removes one of the hots for a ground I believe.
The backwards can be done with a standard volt charger, the unit is exactly
the same but the cord is different for 220v Europe markets.  I thought
about doing that but then I would end up forgetting it at home and not have
a charger onboard.  As well the Volt is limited to 12 amps at either
voltage so probably a whole extra hour to fast charge, so impatient lol.
 Like most reviews the J1772 plug is a little tight but not overwhelming if
you have any arm strength.
