I just installed a Mustart Level II charger in my garage.  It is 32amp, 240 Volt, wall mountable, with 25ft Cord.  I noticed many have shorter cords, this offered the longest for what I saw online.  $329 on Amazon.  It's portable, so I thought it gave me flexibility if needed.  I am waiting for the 220 outlet to be installed, so admittedly, I haven't used it yet.   And yes, it supports Levels 1, 2, 3.  I used a Level 2 today at a grocery store just to ensure it worked.

I personally tried a lvl-3 and it works pretty fast, seems to cap at 45-50Kw even though lvl-3 capable of 150Kw.

My lvl-2 experience is 4-7Kw which is reasonable, I would consider lvl-2 at home only since charge time are too long for road trip or dinner to be honest.

Now as far as lvl-1 goes it's just ridiculously slow on the Revero GT, we're talking 20-22 hours from 20% to 100%, Karma should not provide a lvl-1 cable with the car it's just a bad experience.

Now ROSSR, your question, just look for a 32A 240V, make sure your breakers support 40A, a 240V 16A is cheaper like 80-120$ less but the charge time are not interesting.

This is the one I use. I'm getting up to 7.5kw and 32A.
