For those of you who are familiar with Ingineer's Nissan L1 to L2 EVSE mod (discussed in this thread), you are no doubt interested adapters like those discussed in this thread. As I mentioned in that thread, my brother has picked up the gauntlet and is willing to make them for us. We're going to try and keep this simple so we're not making a full time business out of this. Please bear with us and be sure to read the threads listed above first so you know what you're asking for up front...
The following adapters are available for sale:
- A5*: $50, fits NEMA 5-15 & 5-20 (120v - household)
- A6**: $60, fits NEMA 6-30 & 6-50 (240v - industrial parks, welders, hotel A/C units, etc.)
- A10: $60, fits NEMA 10-30 & 10-50 (240v - "old style" appliances)
- A14: $60, fits NEMA 14-30, 14-50 & 14-60 (240v - "new style" appliances, campground, rv parks, etc.)
- ACS: $90***, fits CS6365 (240v - public parks, stadiums, heavy duty portable generators, etc.)
* Yes, Ingineer's 120v adapter is less because he recycles the original 120v plug while doing your conversion. By all means buy his, but if you want another, or want different lengths, we offer it too.
** A screwdriver is required to open the plug and rotate two pins to work with NEMA 6-30.
*** Please allow extra time for this adapter as special parts are mail-ordered and will take time to arrive to us before we can start building. Additionally, if our supplier changes the price of this part, we may need to pass the additional cost on to you. The current price listed reflects our cost at the time someone last ordered one. If the price has changed, we will confirm with you first.
If you need a quick reference of what most of these plugs look like, see this post.
Each adapter is available in three lengths (all at the same price):
- long: ~4' of wire
- normal: ~1.5' of wire
- stubby: ~3" of wire
I'm personally fond of the stubby variety as they take up less room in the trunk!
We offer a multi-adapter discount of 4% for each additional adapter beyond the first one:
- 1 adapter = no discount
- 2 adapters = 4% off entire order
- 3 adapters = 8% off entire order
- 4 adapters = 12% off entire order
- 5 adapters = 16% off entire order (max. discount)
All shipping is USPS Priority Mail:
- 1 adapter = $6 shipping
- 2 - 5 adapters = $11 shipping
- 6+ adapters = actual shipping costs
PLEASE NOTE: These adapters are made-to-order using parts purchased from local hardware stores and hand-made, so their appearance may vary. Please expect orders to take at least a week for them to arrive.
TO PLACE AN ORDER: Send an email to email@example.com and let us know which adapters you want (e.g. A10 stubby, A14 long). Within a day or two we will send you an email with specific payment instructions. Work will begin once payment is received (or, in the case of a check, once the check has cleared).
PAYMENT METHODS: We are offering these as a courtesy to the forums and have not started a full time business for it. Because of this, our preferred payment method is PayPal using the Send Money > Personal > Payment Owed option because it's quick and inexpensive. If your PayPal account is linked to a checking account there will be no fees for this transaction - however, if it is not, PayPal will impose a small fee (~3%) on top of the cost we quote you. If you do not have a PayPal account (or just prefer not to use them) you can pay by check, although you must wait for the check to clear before we process your order.
QUESTIONS & PROBLEMS: If you have any questions or experience any problems with the ordering process or your adapters, please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org or ask here in this forum thread. If all else fails, please send me a PM and I'll see to it personally.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER: These adapters are intended for use ONLY with Ingineer's EVSE mod discussed above. Because they are hand-made, they are not UL listed - but are made from UL listed parts. 240v electricity is serious business and extreme caution should be exercised while using these adapters. For safety's sake, do not use these adapters and the EVSE outdoors in inclement weather unless you know for sure you're on a GFCI protected circuit (the J plug side of the the EVSE is safe for outdoors in all weather). BY PLACING AN ORDER WITH US, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USING THESE ADAPTERS AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT FROM THEIR USE.
