just submitted a paypal order....wish I would have been up on this forum posting sooner, but hopefully I'm not too late to get one of the last few!

Now that I'm getting a replacement battery, I'll be very interested to track the degradation / range. Looks like a great product!

Ok, the final dozen are being assembled over the next week (or two).. Two of them are already spoken for.
As I dive into this last batch I thought I'd share a few photos of how I put these things together just for the sake of historical documentation ;)

Start off with the 3D printed shells, the OBD2 Cables (which I clip and wrap the 12 unneeded conductors leaving the 4 I need (GND, 12V, EVCAN-H, EVCAN-L)), as well as the LeafDD PCBs hand soldered by my friend Vo for $10/pop (When she solders, it looks like a machine did it.. when I try SMT soldering it looks like a 12 year old did it).
Image

Then the 4 wires are soldered in place and the cable is secured with two zip-ties. BTW, the unpopulated components were for digital lines and serial communication so that the LeafDD could be used as the front hub of a Chademo charger supplying all the signals to the Chademo connector while talking serially to a DC power supply... I just never tried it. That little regulator on the top left is what makes that corner get toasty warm.. If the temp sensor in the 8051 processor detects things getting too warm it will dim the display in software to prevent over heating.
Image

The boards are powered up by a female OBD2 cable supplying 12V and the Silicon Labs 8051 is flash programmed from my laptop. I also do a sanity check on the powered CANH and CANL to verify neither is grounded (Leaf doesn't like that!)
Image

Then I screw on the little nuts and bolts and add the standoffs and header for mounting the OLED board.
Image

And finally add the OLED, screw it in place and solder the 20 pin header on both sides. Power up and test. Ta Da! Then off to my Leaf for in-car testing, a serial number on the back, then packaging for shipping.

^ That was an interesting process. It sure is a useful device!

Do you have any idea of what the idle power draw is with the car off? I haven't had mine unplugged since I got it ten months ago, but I think I may do so when I am away from home for two weeks this summer.

Agreed. Ordered one too.
Will be interesting to compare EV-CAN GIDS to CAR-CAN GIDS' at low status of charge.

FWIW, I left mine plugged in while I was out of town for 3 weeks....no problem.

This is a great product GregH. I just received mine yesterday (crazy fast shipping!), and it works like a charm. I think you did a very good job of utilizing the LED, presenting a lot of very useful data in a very organized way. Thanks again!
