Re: The Magnet Hack?

Newer i-MiEVs came with a similar EVSE, but they just push the button to switch from 8 amps to 12 amps before plugging in.

I've moved on from stock EVSEs to my OpenEVSE units. Fully programmable, open-source, and have built-in energy meters. Mine support level 1 and level 2 up to 40 amps, with a long cord that makes them usable in many scenarios without an extension cord.

My EVSEUpgrade Mitsubishi unit permanently hangs in the garage for home charging. My Tesla and Bolt share a salvage 30 amp Eaton EVSE from a local Giant Eagle.
