Level 1 slow charging provides 12 amps on a 110V source, equaling 1.3kW on the AC side, however, 110V charging is at least 10% less efficient than 240V charging. For cars that thermally manage the battery during charging, 110V charging can be 30% less efficient, resulting in a baseline minimum of 7x faster charging and up to 8x or 11x.
