Hello folks.
Trying to figure out something. Is CCS1 = J1772 + DC prongs?
I have an option to install either J1772 socket or CCS1 socket. Sooner or later the EV wizards will crack the CCS1 and I (and many others) would want to implement it in their conversions. Don't think the commercial EVs have 2 sockets.
Please let me know what you know.
Thanks in advance.

What you really want to reverse engineere are Tesla Superchargers!

One connector on the car supports 1 and 3 phase AC, CHadeMO DC, and CCS DC

Otherwise yes CCS1 is winning over CHadeMO now that Nissan switched, and

CCS1 indeed uses a "J1772 Combo" port

I believe superchargers communicate with a Tesla active DB, which checks the plugged in vehicle VIN, with the active car list. I've read that salvage cars are removed from the list and hence cannot be used for diy conversion to supercharge.

To confirm, if I install a CCS1 socket and plug-in public J1772, the connector will fit and the pins (power and data) will match, right?

I just meant their physical plug, not talking about using their network.

And someone else will need to clarify that last
