Genius, EVDriver - cant tell if your being facetious or are solving all of our problems at once.
Sure it'd get you 480, but how would you ever get from the two L2 chargers?
And, to help the OP, http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 30#p262630" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; is a diagram posted by planet4ever.planet4ever wrote:That public charging station is an EVSE, not a charger. The charger is built into the car. The EVSE is essentially just a sophisticated safety switch. It does nothing to the voltage, or the phase, and it certainly doesn't convert AC to DC. Whatever comes out of your wall is exactly what goes into the car. Hooking two of them up together would not change the voltage or the current in any way, but it would undoubtedly terminally confuse the communication between the charger in the car and the EVSE.
use a converter like the current fast chargers do. all power comes from something and A/C is the ONLY way it comes from the Power company so it has to be turned into DC at the destinationplanet4ever wrote:Sorry, but that sounds crazy. There are no ""two separate legs" of 240v home alternating current to combine to double the voltage. Now if you had three-phase power into your home, you would be using two legs of the three to get 208V, and could increase the voltage by using all three.
Besides, the external charger not only needs to convert AC to DC but it also has to dynamically adjust the voltage to accord with the requirements from the car's battery controller. I'm not sure that it makes much difference in its internal size, weight, cooling requirements, and general complexity what AC voltage it starts with.
