- Sep 2, 2011you dont need to change the charger. The j1772 standard is just an ac power delivery system (a plug.)
they have several and it will give you an idea. You just plug in the j1772 at one and and have a nema whatever at the other end.

With 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.
