Can you estimate current rating on the pins? Are they made of brass or steel?
Did you test them?

tnx

Arber
I didn't test it on the fast charge... I need to find some electric car with fast charger in the neighborhood... Feemale pins are from brass, inner diameter 6 mm , outer diameter 8 mm. Male are from 6 mm steel.
I found cable to make male-feemale type 2 for comertional cars . Then will be easier to test it. Until now I didn't have oportunitiy to charge it more then 10-12 kw

On my Blink EVSE, the ground or Earth pin of the handles is slightly longer such that it is the first-in and last-out when plugging it into the car.

Does your plug and socket have that feature?

I make them all the same high. And it works. I can also put this pin longer if necessary. No problem

I may order one plug and socket from you for my Mazda. Since it is already TUVed.
I have your short plug and i tested it to 10kW. It gets somewhat warm though. I imagine steel pins... Can you make brass pins for me?
I will send you PM.

tnx
