A picture is worth a thousand words. How much is a video worth? Should have done this earlier....

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

...So the EVSE has to plug into a connector that is right by the car on the end of a cord and waterproof. I have 2 10 gauge 120V cords now. 50 foot and 100 foot. I could use one of those for the new configuration if I replace the connectors...the question is - with what? Because I have not found a ...

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

bradleydavidgood777, to better understand the connector wiring, google "nema wiring chart" which will show you the myriad of ways every connector should be wired. Three-wire 240vac circuits utilize HOT-HOT-GROUND. The reason the US code was changed to require four-wire instead of three-wi...

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

Thanks Don, So - You have one 120 volt outlet near the car? Probably the one you've been using for L1 charging?? Is that outlet on it's own breaker?? - If so, you have a really, really easy solution to your L2 charging problems Don The outside outlet is not near the car. It is in the back of the ho...

Joe - Thank you for pointing this out. I meant 14-50 not 10-50. I have corrected it in all of the previous posts.

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

This is the first EVSE that I'm aware of that requires 4 wires to operate - I've never seen any others that come with anything other than a 3 pin plug. There are many, many EVSEs that come with 4-pin plugs (most commonly the 14-50). But generally, their neutral is unconnected. I see no sign that th...

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

So Don, Lets stay with your "Transfer switch before the dryer option" for now. And knowing that we can remove the NEUTRAL pin from the AmazingE means we can use it with any type of connector or outdoor cord right? What outdoor cord would I use? I guess I could use the existing 100 foot 10 ...

I said NEUTRAL, not GROUND.


Yes I'm sorry about that, I understand the difference but have been confusing it when reading for some reason.

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

I am hoping this link will appear properly which illustrates the differences between the various connectors mentioned. It appears that cutting off the EVSE NEUTRAL pin will make the EVSE compatible with the NEW DRYER socket. https://www.google.ca/search?q=10-30+dryer&rlz=1C1CHBF_enCA695CA695&am...
