Re: JESLA -vs- BMW i3 portable charge cable

Mon Mar 30, 2015 11:23 pm

Any plans to do type 2 mennekes? Or ChaDeMo to Type 2 CCS?

Pity that the Chademo to Type 2 adapter from Tesla uses it's own signalling rather than homeplug green, a fairly simple physical adapter for Tesla Type 2 to CCS would have been great.

Personally I've replaced the supply side of the the BMW portable charge cable with an IP68 plug and socket system and I have swappable Schuko, UK and 16A 60309 2P+E connectors.

If Jesla was available for Type 2 I know at least five people including myself who would be willing to put money down for a pre-order.

No reason at all that is obvious, but there may be an issue. It appears that Tesla still uses J1772 signaling, expensive with a Menekkes plug.

I can't physically buy the EU version of the UMC, however. I've tried numerous times.

I have Menekkes Type 2 plugs in stock, and we're building a J1772 adaptor for Tesla cars in Australia.

Go buy the EU - Tesla UMC and lets make that work!

No plans for anything CCS this year.
