I was just thinking that if the charger used PWM controls or other fancy electronics (which could be designed as a kit, sort of) it would be a great feature to integrate.

I do think 240/120 selectable would be a great feature, as would adjustable amp draw. It would suck to not be able to charge AT ALL because your charger draws 16 amps, and you only have a 15 amp outlet available!
