Re: [EVDL] Tesla and Hyatt.....Plugitin!

I totally agree don't create the plug over. does
anyone on this list have any contacts at either
company. If so please let them know that there are a
few thousand electrics on the road that might be able
to stay a day at a hyatt if there were the right kind
of charging station.

Re: [EVDL] Tesla and Hyatt.....Plugitin!

<sarcasm>Right. Please "let them know" so that they can go back and
redesign this extremely complicated government-grant-funded piece of
engineering to use a range plug and completely sidestep all the fancy
safety-minded electronics. Obviously they simply weren't aware of all
our lead-sleds.</sarcasm>

Re: [EVDL] Tesla and Hyatt.....Plugitin!

You can get standard electrical connector and plug adapters from a
electrical supply house or from a RV parts dealer. These are molded
together connector and plugs, where you can plug any combination of plugs
rated at a higher amp into a receptacle that is rated at a lower amp.

The circuit breaker supplying the circuit or power outlet protects this
circuit, so you have to take care of not turning up the battery charger
current above the rating of the receptacle.

I carry in my EV spare parts box, a complete set of adapters that I can plug
in my 50 amp EV input cable into a 120V 20A, 240V 20A 3 and 4 wire, 240V 30A
3 and 4 wire, and 240 50A 3 and 4 wire.

Using a onboard PFC-50 charger, it has a range of 60 to 250 VAC input
voltage which auto adjust to the voltage.
