My first EV outlet was the RV 14-50 Tesla standard type, it was to match my first L2 EVSE, a Juicebox Premium. After that I had my OEM Leaf EVSE upgraded to a 20a max L2 by EVSEupgrade. It was that EVSE that used the L6-30 standard and how I got to like the L6-30 plugs. My next 2 outlets were using the L standard. Instead of the L6-30 I put in L14-30 outlets which besides 240v also has a neutral so you can get 120v out of them, for running various 120v devices. I then made several L14-30 to L6-30 outlet adapters as well as L14-30 to 14-50(the RV or Tesla standard) to run my Juicebox. Of course I also had to make a 14-50 to L6-30 outlet adapter to use my EVSEupgrade'd EVSE as well as a couple other <30a portable EVSEs I've purchased, including my Zencar.valem wrote:Got it, thank you! I already contacted them.
I like your idea of getting it with a less bulky plug since there's no need for a 50A plug to charge the Leaf with L2
And if I run into someone with a Tesla that needs to charge ... they'll just have to deal with the 30A limit
Again I could have just used L6-30 for my outlets to best match my EVSEs but I just wanted to have the option of having a high current 120v source. Adapter Y cables, oftentimes used for generators to convert from a L14-30 outlet to 2 120v females are easily and cheaply found.
Oh I can also use my L14-30 to L6-30 adapter cable to run my EVSE off many 240v portable generators which is a very common outlet for such generators. Very large generators will have a 14-50 outlet but less expensive ~5000W models will have the L14-30 standard.
