Source for SAE J1772 adapter.

Anyone have a source for a SAE J1772 adapter that will work with the Vectrix? Would be nice to be able to use all these chargers going up in Nashville, TN.

Re: Source for SAE J1772 adapter.

I found this site awhile back, but the adaptors appear to made for 240V only. I sent an email asking if it is possible to adapt the J1772 to 120V.

Or, you could just buy a Zero-S which has 240V charging :-)

Vectrix can handle 240V, so there should be no problem.

That adapter puts out 2-phase 240, There are not enough pins on my Vectrix plug to handle that. But if I only hooked up one of the hot leads and the netrual then it might work. It sure is large. It will eat up a ton of room in the trunk. I was hoping for something a little more compact. But I guess beggars can't be picky.

PS Yes the Zero S does nook nice. I hope I can find one close to test drive. ;-) but at a 114 miles of range not sure I would ever need to charge on the go.

The response I received from TusconEV was 'No' it is impossible to adapt the J1772 charging station to use with a 120V system.
I don't think the North American Vectrix would work with an adaptor despite the claim that the Vectrix will charge on a 240V source.
Here is the email:


Nope - not possible. J1772 is 240 vac only. There is no neutral or return, only 2 hots and Ground. If you use the ground as a neutral/return, the EVSE faults.
