So instead of around 3300 watts, it would charge around 2800-watts? So roughly twice as fast as the trickle charger? How long does it take you to charge the battery generally? Is it around 10hrs instead of the usual 7hrs of a dedicated L2 charger?
Is the efficiency still in the 85% range with this modded trickle charger? Heat issues?
What about turning in the charger at the end of the lease..Is it detectable, or I would have to restore the cord back to original?
Also, is the dryer outlet with the slanted terminals (3 prong) compatible ? (or adapters needed?). Do you have the link to the website?
Also, Rev 2 of the EVSEupgrade is 16Ax240v=3.84 KW (http://evseupgrade.com/?x#faq)
