Bottom line: I believe that this modification is safe when carried out by qualified persons. You know who you are. If in doubt, spend the dough on EVSEupgrade.


Very well done. Thanks.

What would I have to further modify on the 120V side of this to get it to boost the amperage? Would it be possible to replace or reprogram the EVSE microprocessor?

Bump

Still working well? Looking at doing this myself, found the instructables DIY and then a link here from a comment.

Thanks!

Yes working very well still no problems.. about 12K miles on my car after almost 15 months. I am guessing I have charged it at least 250 times with this modified EVSE. I do have free charging at my work also. Never had any issue I have charged the car full up from just about 12% battery to 100% too ... several times and no problems at all. very Safe .... and absolutely doable.

Cheers!!

Is there anything fundamentally different about the 2013-14 L1 charger compared to the bulkier 2011-12 charger? This mod should be just as doable in both cases, right?

Take a look at these.. one of them should be appropriate for your older EVSE

What I did here is Version 3 equivalent..

Good luck
