    Does the location where you hook the HPWC charger handle do anything? I've been thinking about putting wall hook on the left side making it easier to grab right handed from the rear.

    With the handle on the right side you have to reach around the unit and pull away from you assuming you've parked head in and mounted the HPWC toward the rear driver's side.

    Hi 1deepthink,

    The hanger only serves one purpose, to hang the cable out of your way.
    Put it wherever you wish, with one exception:
    Do not put it where the cable will be run over by the car...
    That will reduce its life...

    Note that for outdoor installs it also keeps water/snow/debris/ice out of the connector. If your install location has none of these issues (say inside a garage) then yeah, do anything you want with it!
