Hopefully just a glitch---however second delay. I was hoping to be an early adapter adopter :lol:

At his booth at Saturday's Electric Auto Association event we talked about the Kickstarter project (he said he just needs to make a quick video) so I suggested that he provide the reason for the delay - I see now that it's been put off until September 24. He's simply one very busy person!

Even though the website says 24 September for the start of the Kickstarter campaign, it was still not enabled when I just tried accessing.

Over on the Leaf forum there is a parallel thread to this one, and which Tony Williams posts to. Same impatience and questions as here, with the last post by Tony which can be taken in a number of ways.

Since he hasn't taken down the webpage about the jDapter nor updated it, I can only surmise that he is one very busy person!

Latest post by Tony Williams says they're redesigning and will soon be offering it...

Left a message yesterday about the adapter and Tony called me back about it. He says it is going to be produced and has been in redesign as another member stated. He said we are looking at about a six month time period before they will be available. If you need to do something now, the cable of the HPWC and connector can be replaced with a $199 setup (limited to 40 amps) or a $299 setup for the full 80 amp output. BTW --- the 80 amp option is currently backordered. Because I am not in a rush for the adapter (I have other EVSE's) I should just wait for the "Jdapter" to be manufactured and not mess with the cable/connector change. Maybe the Model 3 will arrive before the adapter, maybe not. :D !

What we're talking about is the ability to convert a Tesla EVSE into a J1772 power source.

Still no news about Tony Williams' $200 product, despite numerous ads still popping up.

In the meantime, here's an expensive ($400) equivalent:

If I were going cross-country in an i-MiEV, I would have one of these in my bag of tricks, as there are many hotels/motels with Tesla HPWC.

You might want to give Tony Williams a call and tell him about your need for an adapter such as the Jadapter but you cannot wait for it. A few months ago, there was a promotional code to get $160.00 off the $399.00 list price for the J stub. I know it's true because I bought one for $239.00 on the 30th of August this year. I have a Tesla HPWC and really wanted to use it with my Volt and my Victory Empulse motorcycle. The adapter works great on all of the vehicles I have tried it on and is nicely manufactured.

I wish I still had the code, but I put it on the order paperwork and didn't write it down. It is not shown on my receipt, just the $160.00 adjustment. They are pretty good people and might still have this deal or could cut you a deal just to be nice. It's worth asking anyway.

BTW--if I find the code I will edit and post it here :)

Found it! The promo code is (was) --- JDapter239---- Give it a try if you are interested.

I don't follow Tony Williams' business very closely- does anyone know if he (or a qualified third party) has evaluated the residential CHAdeMO unit being offered by his competition? https://www.evseadapters.com/products/portable-chademo-quick-charger At $3700, it's only 19% more expensive than upgrading a RAV4 or Roadster to accept CHAdeMO in the first place, and is also approx the same price as adding a Brusa charger to a 2011-12 LEAF for the same 6.6 kW charging capability.

What I am surprised at is that this will even work at all... and that Tesla chargers aren't locked down to their own products by software...
