How will our Mod'ed portable EVSE's do if/when hooked up to the newer 2013 / 6K on-board charger?
will I let the smoke out?
Since it still can only deliver 16A max (assuming you have the Rev2 upgrade, or 12 for Rev1), the 6.6kw charger won't charge much faster than before. Maybe just a tiny bit faster.
Assuming no loss, 240V * 16A = 3.84 KW, so that's the most power the EVSE can deliver.
The 2013 S has a 3.6kw charger, so it'll charge a little bit faster than then old 3.3kw charger. The draw is still within the 16A limit.
A 6.6kw charger on the 2013 SV or SL can still only draw 16A max from the Rev2 EVSE upgrade, so the most it can draw is 3.8 kw (assuming no loss). But it won't smoke out.
