Suggestions for a setup for charging my plug-in hybrid vehicle

I want to be able to plug in my vehicle both inside and outside of my garage. When leaving it outside, I currently run the charging cable under my garage door to the indoor plug. Does anyone have experience with an outdoor outlet? I'm going to upgrade to a 240V outlet for faster charging. Is there any reason to get something specific to vehicles (like a charging station) vs. a standard outdoor 240V outlet?

Anything other advice?

  Hybrids also run on gas but you're very clever. ** -- Lile Hancock 12/01/2021 2:47PM
