I skimmed the previous posts, and it looks like nobody has mentioned this yet: there was this thread about a J1772 gun getting stuck in a LEAF. The gun looks the same; I have no idea if it's the same...
Andy, yes this was an earlier version of the Dostar plug. The new model, in production since March 2011, should work without any problems. I emailed a Leaf owner in Colorado, who is using this version of the product, and he confirmed that it worked for him. This was mentioned earlier in the thread as well.aqn wrote:I skimmed the previous posts, and it looks like nobody has mentioned this yet: there was this thread about a J1772 gun getting stuck in a LEAF.

Steve from http://www.tzev.com wrote:Yes, I have used their j1772 connector. I fitted it to an older AVCON charger and the unit has worked well with my Leaf and given me no issues what so ever. I have the 70a connector and should note that it does fit "tightly" to the Leaf, but I prefer that tighter fit to ensure good contact. By comparison, I will note that I believe the OEM supplied 110v Leaf connector seems all to fit too loosely to make a good connection. Just my two cents.
Unfortunately, as we entered volume production we did see variable quality from the Chinese vendors and decided to run with the new "Gen 2" products from ITT.surfingslovak wrote:Separately from that, Kevin Sharpe placed a volume order a little while ago for his charity, and he appears to be satisfied with the quality of the product.
The picture has both the IEC 62196 Type 1 ("J1772") and Type 2 ("mennekes") connectors.garygid wrote:Is the picture of two slightly different size handles, or just one size?
We use the 32A connector. ITT make a range from 16A to 75A.garygid wrote:What is the current rating of this ITT plug?
Yes.garygid wrote:Is it UL listed?
No, you can use a pad lock on the J1772 connector.garygid wrote:It appears to have no provision to lock the Release lever, right?
Our cables are 5m long... they are custom made so any length can be produced.garygid wrote:If it comes with a cable, what lengths are available.
I do not intend to sell component parts to end users. The work involved is significant and it distracts us from our project to donate 1000 Charging Stations. I will sell a J1772 cable IF we can get enough interest on this forum... currently, that looks unlikely.garygid wrote:Will you sell in low quantity to us?
I believe so although have not tested it.garygid wrote:Will this "longish" handle fit inside the Nissan Charge-Hatch "cover"?
Our 5m mennekes-to-J1772 cable is 199 GBP (~$300 USD).garygid wrote:Price from you?
