I just replaced the cable and J1772 connector on my Blink- Ecotality Project EVSE. (again)
Car Charging Group (Blink) came out and replaced it once for overheat, and then dumbed the EVSE down to 16 Amps.
I couldn't live with that, so I set it back to 32Amps and it ran for almost 2 years.
Then the weirdest thing started happening.
I would find the car not fully charged.
A little investigation led to the discovery of a 160F connection point, and either the car or the EVSE was kicking out.
Only I cannot figure why?
It's a 4 wire system; No temp sensor on the EVSE side, and No temp sensor that I'm aware of in the Cars side of the J1772.
But I'm glad it did so.
Anyway, the Blink OEM was obviously exp. Increasing corrosion.
I had nice a cable and plug assembly that I had purchased when it overheated the first time, and did a quick swap out.
Bought a whole set of security torx at home depot.
(Thought that would be harder.)
Not going to get embroiled in the Solder vs. Crimp debate, but there is a reason they are all crimped.
