OpenEVSE support

Wed May 09, 2018 5:19 pm

Mike the forum owner removed my posts. That certainly is his right.

Remember that I support everything I made. Please email me if you have a problem and I will take care of it. Usually just for shipping both ways. So far I have never charged for parts but there is always a first time.

I really can not help with wifi. I juse build basic units with thimr


Wifi support is on your own. I built a unit and the person was able to use wi-fi but I did not help him.

At age 70 cell phone apps do not hold any interest to me. I just want the basics.

can't you just go to the OpenEVSE store and buy the wifi unit? I bought a full EVSE kit and built mine from the parts.. they have some pretty good instructions on their website to help you follow along. pretty sure the internals of yours would match mine and get you were you need to go.

Yes, I am still around and I support what I sold. For general questions I would refer them to Chris Howell at Open EVSE.

It looks like he has a Black Friday sale.

You can also buy the wifi module from internet or microcenter. Still using the charger Glenn sold me, and still wifi connected.

https://store.openevse.com/collections/ ... e-wifi-kit

https://www.microcenter.com/product/460 ... p8266-wifi

Both are the same component, OpenEVSE one already has the software loaded, $40, Microcenter $15 one will require you to load the software.

Have fun!

With the stock 5V power supply there is not enough power to run the wifi module. Chris supplies a regulator so it can run from the 12V part of the supply. He also provides cables. In truth I would let him have his small profit. IT IS WORTH A LOT FOR A WORKING DEVICE. It is not like he is charging a hundred bucks for his stuff. Regulators on eBay run 5 bucks or so. He only buys from Digikey so he may pay more.

On most of the units I build I use a separate dual 1A supply so current is not a problem. His supply is cute though and it makes a tiny package. I nearly always have room for a separate supply.

Chris's units are also prebuild. Making your own requires soldering. Just giving people choices.


That being said, I have one of Chris's full units, and I also tinker with the one I got from you Glenn.

I am sorry. The wife of one of my customers Dropped off a unit for repair.

I am suffering from a bad cold and it may be several days before I get to it. Right now I feel too rotten to work.
