How about a $900 unit for half price? We have used ones.alozzy wrote:It's your persistently snarky tone that I take issue with. Why don't you try a little tact?
I know that your company sells a portable EVSE that automatically adjusts the current to match the supply; however, I can't afford a $900 US EVSE. The OP stated early on that he can't afford a $900 EVSE either. So, we make do with what we've got.
I have zero concerns using my adapter cable for the purpose for which it is intended - exclusively for my portable EVSE, which allows me to set the amperage rate before I plug it in.
We also sell a direct competitor to the 16 amp Duosida, built for us by the same company that built the Duosida. Ours has several changes, but the best change is interchangeable plugs (much like our $900 unit) for:
NEMA 14-50 (RV parks)
NEMA 10-30 (old dryers)
NEMA 5-15 (household 120 volt outlet)
We can even modify the 14-50 to be used with 14-30 (new dryers) and 14-20 (stoves).
But, folks who swap around amperage plugs the other way, well I've said what I think about it. You could NEVER overload a circuit with our adaptors. We just won't build them that way. We won't suggest others do, either. The danger is too great.
I've seen the leftovers from electrical hack jobs. I've also seen some of the hack jobs before they burn the place down. The only thing different between the two is the fire.
