Thanks for the response. I'm seeing some issues with the 350w Electrify America chargers that I would be using (these are from user feedback). Finally convinced my wife to go with the ID4 but since it's our only car, I'm still trying to resolve some doubt in my mind over how much time and how often I need to charge. Any thoughts to make me feel better?
I think you're right to have doubts and indicates you're being honest with yourself. You have to evaluate how much of a inconvenience, how much of a chore it will be to have to be to set aside time and drive to charge on some sort of recurring schedule. It's not hard, it's just lost time, and a low battery necessitates a somewhat inflexible time commitment, not "I'll get to it when I get to it." The ability to charge at home is an often misunderstood, or at least undervalued, benefit to EV ownership that the majority of us take for granted. Most of us don't have to think about charging schedules because we plug the car in when we feel like it and walk away -- it's 15 seconds of our lives and we go on about our business.

Not saying not to do it! But know what you're in store for.
