Most of the vendors want very large volume commitments and that's proving difficult for us because in the UK the government has now committed to using "mennekes" connectors on our charging stations.
We have therfore manufactured a 32A mennekes-to-j1772 cable which is being tested by a number of Leaf drivers in the UK. Here's one being used yesterday;http://www.leaftalk.co.uk/showthread.php/4688-Testing-Ecotricity-s-charging-points
We are making some minor changes to the cables based on the feedback we have received and will manufacture a new version early next year with a target retail price of £200 (~$320) initially. I fully expect this price to drop during the year.
I'm not sure that I can help you in the US because we are no longer planning to buy just J1772 connectors but rather complete cables...

They do make good products... only problem I have with them is the lack of a locking mechanism at the car (something we've had requests for).
