Thanks JJeff, that will help me fill in some of the gaps. I will put those on the shopping list for later. The big ones I wanted covered for sure were adapters to take advantage of campgrounds. The area where I am planning a move to either later this year or some time next year is a EV desert and I think if I do much adventuring at all I will need to be able to leverage as many plug options as possible. In some ways I think that is the fun part about the EV is that it will force me to go places and do things that I otherwise probably wouldn't and hopefully get to have some fun in the process. Funny how that works! LOL
Oh, BTW Ms Dream over at Zencar is very easy to work with. When you order you get to specify everything. If you want the shake model or the card model with shake. You can specify the modes, plug, and cable length. I mentioned to her that they should start to offer adapters for these and she sounded receptive to the idea.
Initially I asked for 12a,16a,24a,32a modes, but then realized "what if" I am plugging into a 120v circuit that has other things on it? So I thought well I better have a weaker charge mode that might work on a non-dedicated 120v circuit. So I went back and asked for a 6a mode also. She added that for $5 more. So my EVSE will come with 6a,12a,16a,24a,32a modes. That should have most of the scenarios I am likely to run into covered. I hope!
Once I get moved I will get the Home EVSE setup going. Right now I am still leaning toward the Juicebox Pro for the home EVSE. I will have the electrician out doing some other work for me at that location in a few weeks so I think I am going to get the 50a circuit and the 15-50r installed at that time so that it is all setup and ready to go.
I only got 3 amp settings, Alozzy got 4, and now you get 5
I wish I'd have known it would cost so little to add more settings. Like you said, you can never have too many settings. 6a.....that must be the absolute lowest you can go, I seem to remember when setting my Juicebox if I went any lower, the car stopped charging all together. You will get lower charging if thats what your car requests, but I believe the EVSE must advertise at least 6a to even initiate charging. 6a @ 120v! wow that would take something like 40hrs to fully charge a Leaf
but I guess better than nothing, but at that rate you'd only gain ~2-3%/hr and would be quite inefficient.
You must have went with a 14-50 plug? I remember with my L6-30 plug they'd only give me a 30a max setting, as the L6-30 plug technically maxes out at 30a. Note all settings are for either 120v(L1) or 240v(L2) although you'd probably never run across a 120v outlet good for more than 24a(TT-30 RV outlet).
The Juicebox Pro is a very nice EVSE, it gives you 1a adjustments for output, anywhere from 6a to the max, but you do need a internet connection to change it, no internet it just defaults to the last setting you used, not as nice for traveling.
Oh lastly, to adjust the amperage, plug the EVSE into the wall(and not the car) then violently shake it, each shake will increment to the next highest setting, when you get to the highest the next shake starts at the bottom. After the first minute or once you've plugged into the car you can shake the EVSE all you want but the current will stick. Changing the current is a bit hokey but I suppose they didn't want to have external buttons for a chance of water getting in, you can use the EVSE outside in the rain so it has to be waterproof as possible.
