The US supplied charger also has 2 cords when you get the car (for 120v & 240v).

For the first 3 months I had my A3 etron I used the 120 and it took about 6-7 hours for a full charge.

Just had a 240v line run in to my garage last week and it now takes about 2 hours for a full charge. :D

I can confirm that. With a 240 V line (like for an electric dryer) the charger that comes with the car works like a Level 2 charger (need to switch to the right cord) ... full charge in about 2 hours.

Since the 240 volt charger has a 100% setting and a 50% setting, which is the default, I have been wondering if there is any long term effects on the battery to charging at 100%, which takes about 1/2 the time. I finally inquired at the dealership. The technician said that there is no official opinion on this from Audi, but his feeling is, if you aren't in a hurry, you should charge at 50%, as that is probably better for the battery life in the long term. Just use the 100% if you need a full charge in a couple of hours. Makes sense to me. I'm usually charging over night, so there's no hurry.
