7455Re: J1772 conversion cable for Solectria Force
- Sep 1, 2011With a new adaptor, would you need to adjust or replace the charger? I am very interested in this, since none of the public charging stations in my area work with a level 1 or level 2 charger.

It seems likely that a comprable unit can be constructed for substantially less. A bit of engineering is required to get around the input controls employed int the J1772 standards but the information to do this is available.
