If we are going to be able to charge any type/size of battery pack from any voltage and amperage of outlet, i think we're venturing out of DIY into state of the art. The additional hardware required to accomodate EVERY battery is going to drive up complexity.

Could we select what is the most likely battery choice for a DIY EV and design the charger accordingly? I like the idea of 240/120 and selectable amperage draw.
