I'd like to update my charger firmware with the more battery-friendly version that I've heard about on this forum.
But first I need to locate a source for a USB-to-CAN bus adapter.
I've seen some on Ebay, but I don't know if there are different types (different connector types, etc.)
Any recommendations or advice on this?

Thanks
Scott

There is only one type that works with the Vectrix - the Peak PCAN adapter.

Yikes .. I just checked one site online and the price on the Peak PCAN adapter was $255.
Is there a cheaper source?

I found a USB-CAN adapter made by vscom which claims to be compatible with the Peak PCAN adapter.
It costs about $120.

Hi Scott - I'm looking for one now too but would rather not pay a small fortune. Did you get anywhere with a cheap option?

Regards, Martin.
