Re: [EVDL] J1772 Charger Inlet on Ebay

Doug, are you including the necessary"Pilot" signal electronics/ or do you
have a source for it? (The parts for the inlet are simply a 600volt piv
silicon one amp diode and a 1/2 watt 600 ohm +/- 10% resistor properly
connected. What good is a $137.50 receptacle and $29.93 in shipping if it
won't turn on the 240 VAC at the charging station downtown?

Re: [EVDL] J1772 Charger Inlet on Ebay

Still been too busy to do the tests. You want to build me a little box for
these things and I will then sell them together? Things are pretty busy
here at the moment (a good thing). I appreciate your help on the diagram.
You gave permission to use via EVDL so I am using it.

I know it seems a higher price than you want to pay but it is cheaper than
almost every other place I have found online so I am being as competitive as
I can be. I even sold the one I had in stock in my car that I was going to
do the test on because it has been that popular!!!

I have already sold quite a few without the electronics. It would be great
to include them but I just haven't had time to do it. I know...."the road
to hell is paved with good intentions"......

Hence up at 12:30am Saturday night doing emails and website fixes and
uploads. I really want to go to sleep......

Re: [EVDL] J1772 Charger Inlet on Ebay

Hi, Doug, ( am a night person...)
I have been thinking about what you have said the past few days. I
want to share with you what I think is best for the "Home Builder" EV
hobbyist. Just between you and me (I am not interested in harming your
business.) I IN MY PERSONAL OPINION, NOT FOR PUBLICATION! Each Hobbyist EV
should have a suitable Charger built-in to their EV. and It should have a
cord of at least 20 feet in length with adapters for 125 V.AC at 12 Amps and
240 V. AC at up to 40 amps if the charger they could afford is rated for
those inputs. Most if them should also have a J1772 adapter Receptacle
either built into the vehicle in some safe manner,or as a box and suitable
outlet at the end of their cables. In their garage at home (Or carport,)
they should have something like the "Spa disconnect" with switch, GFIC, and
wiring to a suitable source breaker in the home main panel. And a suitable
located Outlet to plug the cord from the EV into. (I feel having a J1772
plug and cord in or at the home is superfluous for a hobbyist EV.) Only
those NEW Manufactured EV owners , still in Warranty, need a J1772 cable and
plug at their home, and they are getting $7,500 and $3,000 more from "Fed"
and California State, to install a proper J1772 Supply Station (The
commercial ones are selling for about $5,000 installed by a licensed
Electrical Contractor.). I won't broadcast that point to the Web, it would
not be fair to you and others who have invested in these parts for your EV
parts business. Besides it is only my opinion. And that is why I won't build
or design an adapter box for the cord and plug assembly. If I was to buy a
new Leaf, I would chop the cable between the charger and the J1772
receptacle, put in a suitable plug and jack pair to reconnect them. then add
another connector and 30 ft. cord with a NEMA 15-30 plug on it and a Spa
disconnect in my garage with a NEMA 15-30 receptacle and use that for
charging and save myself $4,750 on Garage wiring, but I am "Frugal...".

*Dennis Lee Miles*

Re: [EVDL] J1772 Charger Inlet on Ebay

To Doug Especially, I'm sorry, I intended this as a communication to you
only, I failed to notice you had sent the message I was replying to the
EVDL.
Note to everyone, the remarks on my previous post were my personal
opinion ONLY. they were never intended as suggestions for a Hobbyist EV
Builder. Please do not attempt any of them without suitable expertise wether
you have it yourself or an expert assistant.

Re: [EVDL] J1772 Charger Inlet on Ebay

That's almost exactly what I'm doing. I'm in the process of fitting a NEMA
L6-30P twist-lock receptacle to my car under the gas cap lid. I will have
two pigtail extension cords that fit into that. The first will be NEMA
L6-30P to 220V/35A for charging at home. The second will be a NEMA L6-30P
to 110V/20A for charging at work. My charger draws 15A on 110V so it really
isn't 15A compatible. It draws about 15-20A on 220V but obviously charges
much quicker. The charger does automatically switch between 110 and 220V.
All this with 10ga wire for the extension cords.

This will let me quit stressing my 15A circuits and wiring with the 15A load
when charging at home. The circuit at work has a 20A outlet so that will
work fine also. I'll carry the 110V extension cord in the trunk and keep
the 220V cord at home. When I'm done, all circuits will be used within
their standard ratings. Always a good thing!

The Boise, ID area doesn't have any public charging stations that I'm aware
of, so I don't feel a lot of draw to standards except those at home and
work. I also don't have a charger smart enough to deal with much of that.

I'm still gathering a few parts, but I'm pretty soon going to tear in and do
a fair amount of rewiring. There are some changes around the AC relay to
turn off the charger that I've been wanting to make. Time to get rid of
some black electrical tape connections! That will also include the new
relay and inrush current limiters for the DC-DC converter. Finally, time to
add the heater (the real reason this all got started).

Re: [EVDL] J1772 Charger Inlet on Ebay

No harm done Dennis. I like the idea of having the J1772 connector
installed in my car as it is a very stable plug with a latch and is very
sturdy. Your situation is your own and I appreciate what you have been
doing for the EV community.

Next week I am going to get a chance to drive the Ford Escape Electric
Vehicle in NYC. I'm all about EVs even if the OEMs make them. My feeling
is that the more EVs out there, the more willing people will be to start
converting them. I also want to support EV racing. Once people see that
EVs can go fast, I believe it will help push the agenda. Here in NJ and the
Northeast, EVs are almost non-existent. Doing all I can to push for more
EV Adoption. EV Conversion or OEM. We all win when more and more people
drive EVs.

To Doug Especially, I'm sorry, I intended this as a communication to you
only, I failed to notice you had sent the message I was replying to the
EVDL.
Note to everyone, the remarks on my previous post were my personal
opinion ONLY. they were never intended as suggestions for a Hobbyist EV
Builder. Please do not attempt any of them without suitable expertise wether
you have it yourself or an expert assistant.

Initial demand (computed by extrapolating the reservations for GM Volt and
Nissan Leaf,) shall exceed 200,000 vehicles in 2010 and 2011. However only
50,000 vehicles will be marketed, so a LARGE demand for Nice Newer
Conversions is predicted!
